Biography

He co-wrote and starred in the adored cult zombie spoof "Shaun of the Dead" (2004), earning a following in the United States that ballooned to full-blown stardom in 2007 with the action-flick send-up, "Hot Fuzz." Adding further luster to his cool-factor, Pegg was cast as chief engineer Montgomery "Scotty" Scott in J.J.
