Simon Pegg: ‘I Started To Believe All Of Crispian’s Moon Mumbo’

With A Fantastic Fear of Everything in cinemas today, we got the chance to have a chat with none other than Simon Pegg.

We found out why the Spaced, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Star Trek and Mission Impossible star ended up leading the low budget British film, which marks the directorial debut of Kula Shaker frontman Crispian Mills. Pegg plays Jack, a struggling, paranoid writer who has to overcome his fear of launderettes to wash his filthy clothing for an important meeting. Amara Karan, recently seen in All In Good Time, co-stars, along with Paul Freeman and Clare Higgins.

Crispian, son of Hayley Mills and Roy Boulting, works from a short story written by Bruce Robinson, director of Withnail & I, with animated sequences from video director Chris Hopewell.

We joined a small table of press types in London the other week to have a rather informal chat with the amiable and sweary Pegg, finding out that he still gets starstruck.
