Default Pegg talks

Recently Chris Pine stated that he is not impersonating William Shatner in his portrayal of James T. Kirk and it appears that Simon Pegg is taking the same approach. In a new Comic Con interview with AICN, Pegg talks about focusing on the character of Scotty, and also what it was like working with James Doohan’s son Chris, who also has a role in the film.



Simon Pegg on his approach to Scotty:
I just approached it as any actor would with a character. I didn’t look at James; I just looked at the character and said, "Okay, he’s Scottish and he works in space and he’s an engineer and he’s a bit of a brawler. He likes to drink. And I approached it like that. It was easy to do because it was all there in the script. I was fortunate to have Chris Doohan be my assistant in one of the scenes in one of the rooms on the Starship Enterprise. Perhaps moving things around. [laughs]
Pegg on working with Chris Doohan
…it was really lovely to have him sit next to me so we could talk. And he plays one of the crew, and he told me loads of stories about hanging out with his dad on set. He was there when they were filming "The Trouble with Tribbles" and I think they apparently opened the little hatch where all the Tribbles were and send them spilling everywhere much to his father’s consternation.
Pegg also said that he has seen some of Star Trek:
I’ve seen a little bit and I was screaming. I had my hand over my mouth “Oh my God!” It’s so good. I just think it’s going to be huge.

The amount of positive vibe we are getting from everyone connected with the movie is making me salivate. I really hope they all know what they are talking about.

I agree. I think Pegg is going to prove to be one of the best choices.

Pegg nails it once again without giving away the farm -- excellent news!

It's driving me crazy everybody who's seen it but hasen't seen it all say it's incredible. I mean even the paramount exec thought it was so good they moved it to blockbuster season. I would sell my soul just to see the first 10 min

He must be a great tap dancer...as evidenced by this interview.
