Simon Pegg still giving 2000 AD some love

The creators of Spaced - Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Jessica Hynes - went to Comic-Con to pimp the show's US DVD release. Pegg will soon be seen starring as Scottie in the new Star Trek movie, but it's good to see his heart still belongs to iconic British science fiction comic 2000 AD. Check out the retro logo t-shirt in this photo from Entertainment Weekly magazine's Comic-Con gallery.

I'm glad he still loves 2000ad - I'm working on a comic script (and the art to go with it) that involves him and Judge Dredd at the moment...

I loved Spaced - great series, really inventive and fresh.

I also love SPACED. I subscibe to Edgar Wright's blogs on MySpace, and he linked to an interview they did with the American press. I can't find the link at the moment, but there was a funny comment made by Simon Pegg on how, in Season 1 of SPACED, his character Tim states that "Every odd-numbered Star Trek movie is crap!" He found it amusing if not slightly embarrassing now that he is starring in one of said movies!
