Pegg Regrets Saying No To Tarantino

Had he made a different choice, Simon Pegg might have had a part in a movie which was nominated for eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture.

Pegg was offered the role of Lt. Archie Hicox in Quentin Tarantino‘s Inglourious Basterds as well as a role as Inspector Thompson in Steven Spielberg‘s The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn.

“It was a horrible decision to make,” said Pegg. “I remember sitting on my own in a hotel room for an hour, having to decide which one to do. It was agony.”

Pegg chose the Spielberg film, which will release next year. In The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn, Tintin and his friends set off to find a treasure left behind by Tintin’s ancestor Sir Francis Haddock. Pegg and Nick Frost will play bumbling detectives Thompson and Thomson.
