If rumors prove to be true, Simon Pegg might be making an appearance in Star Wars: Episode VII.
Pegg was asked directly if he would be taking part in the latest Star Wars movie, but he didn’t say either yes or no.
“Well, J.J. uses me in different roles, and we’re good friends,” said Pegg. “I feel like my face in Star Wars would pop people out of the movie. Look, I love Star Wars, and I don’t want people to watch and go, ‘Oh, there’s Simon Pegg’s face.’ The film is cleverly cast with these amazing, unknown actors.”
Pegg admits to visiting the Star Wars set. “Of course I visited the set. It’s amazing, and I love Star Wars. I want to see everything happening. It looks wonderful, and you need to believe those characters. Any type of stunt casting might just pop you out of the movie.”
So will Pegg be in Star Wars: Episode VII or not? If so, it would seem that it would be in disguise, perhaps as some alien.
