I’ve enjoyed the work of Simon Pegg for many years (yes, including his work in ‘Faith In The Future’), and reading his interviews and the like, it often feels like he’s very much an example of someone who loves comedy, almost like ‘one of us’ (by which I mean the audience) who’s made good. As a result of this – perhaps wildly inaccurate – feeling, I’d like to think that Mr Pegg wouldn’t forget about his colleagues, or where he’s come from, or any of those other things that people who’ve had a hearty degree of success are legendary for doing.
Which is why I was so pleased to read this, which – if the report is accurate – suggests that one of the key reasons why he’s upset about the issue is because, all other aspects aside, of the bad manners involved.
Good show, I say. Dashed good show.
