Simon Pegg would like to move past his supposed reputation as a nerd.
The actor is appearing in Man Up as a romantic lead, which a nice change for the actor more known for comedy.
“I’m not quite the nerdy man-child that everyone thinks I am,” said Pegg.
“I mean, I still love genre cinema, and I’m very excited to be in the Star Trek films. But at home, I’m not this toy-collecting, comic-book reading, video gaming…I’m just not, you know?
“And I’m kind of feeling like it’s time to move on from that, like that phase of my life might be coming to an end.”
“I’d quite like to do some more films that aren’t necessarily, er…set in space,” added Pegg.
