Simon Pegg(ed)

If you were to ask who my favorite English actor was, I would tell you hands down Simon Pegg.  He is one of those brilliant actors that some how escapes the hollywood buzz boards and gossip mags, while pumping out hilarious flick after hilarious flick.  His goofy mannerisms, and adorable brit accent give him a lovable feel even while performing lewd, crude, and horribly funny acts on the big screen.  His resume includes movies like How to Lose Friends and Alienate People, Run Fat Boy Run, Hot Fuzz, and what could be considered his breakthrough role, Shaun of The Dead.

Simon Pegg’s most recent work in How to Lose Friends and Alienate People is a snug fit into Mr. Pegg’s repertoire of films.  This particular piece revolves around a quirky British journalist and his struggle to make a name for himself in the city.  The film combines dumb comedy, the kind where people fall, burp, break things, etc, and witty banter to create a hilarious 110 minutes for its viewers.
