Simon Pegg‘s charisma helps subvert expectations in Vaughn Stein‘s directorial debut, Terminal, a twisty crime movie with a fairy tale aesthetic. The actor and writer completely plays against type with his performance as Bill, a dying man who ends up in a diner heavy on neon lighting with the mysterious Annie (Margot Robbie). For Pegg, Bill is a deeply stark contrast to his past characters.
Simon Pegg is currently shooting a movie in Los Angeles, titled Lost Transmissions, so we recently had the opportunity to sit down with him to discuss Terminal, which co-stars Mike Myers in a similarly unexpected role. When Myers was cast after Pegg signed up, the Shaun of the Dead star thought, “This is like comedy people suddenly going very dark.” In our full interview, Pegg also told us about acting with Myers, his work on major franchises, his thoughts on method acting, and making his directorial debut later this year.
