Comic-Con Bonus Video: Simon Pegg and Co. Speak

By Jen Chaney

During my time at Comic-Con, I got to interview Simon Pegg, Edgar Wright and Jessica Hynes of the cult-favorite British series, "Spaced." After running into "Superbad" director Greg Mottola over at the Convention Center and finding out that Mottola planned to work with Pegg on a feature film partially set at Comic-Con, I attempted to get more information from the "Shaun of the Dead" star himself.

Pegg would confirm nothing, including the fact that frequent collaborator Nick Frost will appear in the Mottola-helmed movie with him. He and his buddies did, however, address the idea of "Spaced" becoming a film, their impressions of Comic-Con and plans to complete the trilogy Pegg and Wright began with "Shaun" and the cop-movie-parody, "Hot Fuzz." See and hear it all for yourselves in the video interview below.

Welcome home and Happy Birthday, Liz!

You should take pictures of all your swag (including my Dwight Schrute bobblehead, right?) so we can drool.

Simon Pegg is a brilliant comedic actor and a genuinely funny guy. So...that'd be a yes.
