Pegg quizzes Abrams on Star Wars… kinda

May 4th, 2013 by Marc Comments

Simon Pegg has interviewed JJ Abrams for a Sky Movies segment here in the UK.

The actor, who stars in the directors forthcoming Star Trek Into Darkness, has a bit of hatred for the prequel films but we can forgive him for that for producing gems such as Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and Spaced.

Anyway, not much is said in this chat but you do get the love both men have for George Lucas’ sci-fi epic.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
