Star Wars or Star Trek Character? w/ Simon Pegg

  • Published on Aug 19, 2019
  • Simon Pegg not only plays Scotty in the 'Star Trek' universe and Unkar Plutt in the 'Star Wars' universe, he's also a mega-fan of both series. We test his knowledge by having him pick dozens of obscure characters' names out of a bucket and tell us whether they're from 'Star Trek' or 'Star Wars.'

    Thank God they stopped making those nihilistic parodies of Star Trek, his clownish performance of Scotty got old really fast.

    He did this so well I thought I moght have misunderstood the game: that they gave him funny names and he had to invent characters on the spot.

    What kind if bullshit questions are those? Simon Pegg is a dude who knows his stuff; you gotta challenge the man a little more than "which franchise is Greedo from?"

    Wow those were some really tough, obscure characters they asked him! They should have made it a bit easier for him.

    • Jadeleath
      Jadeleath 5 months ago

      @The Movie Planet Unfortunately via text, tone is difficult to tell. A few of the names were kind of obscure for the casual fan, but then it wouldn't have been a challenge for him.

    • The Movie Planet

      @Jadeleath look up the definition of "sarcasm" please. The characters they asked him about were so obvious it's a wonder they didn't ask him about Luke Skywalker and Spock.

    • Jadeleath
      Jadeleath 5 months ago

      Yet he aced every single one, naming who played them. Perhaps they needed to go harder! Simon knows his stuff, especially having been in both Trek and Wars.
