Simon Pegg Confirms He's Not In Star Wars VII. Or Does He?

simon pegg not in star wars

Recent rumours of Simon Pegg being on board for Star Wars VII and a slip of the tongue at SDCC by Benedict Cumberbatch indicating that the Paul and Star Trek Into Darkness star was in yet another JJ Abrams movie have been quashed somewhat by Pegg himself.  Talking with Vulture.com he says:

"Well, J.J. uses me in different roles, and we’re good friends. I feel like my face in Star Wars would pop people out of the movie. Look, I love Star Wars, and I don’t want people to watch and go, Oh, there’s Simon Pegg’s face. The film is cleverly cast with these amazing, unknown actors. (emphasis Vulture's)"
So, you’re not in the movie?

[Smiles.] Of course I visited the set. It’s amazing, and I love Star Wars. I want to see everything happening. It looks wonderful, and you need to believe those characters. Any type of stunt casting might just pop you out of the movie. 
Hmmm.  You could read between the lines here and think he may actually be in make up.  Stay tuned.
