Simon Pegg: No Thanks, L.A.
Sounds like resident Brit David Beckham will not be replaced in town any time soon by geeky, zombie-obsessed comic actor Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz). Pegg, in an interview with the U.K.'s Zoo Magazine, said there was no way he'd relocate to Los Angeles, even after working here on Star Trek, in which he played the role of Scotty. Although his family and friends all live in London, Pegg did allow that we have some charms to offer.
"If I was in L.A. right now," Pegg admitted, "I'd be down at the King's Head in Santa Monica, sipping a few beers -- there is a cool British community, but I wouldn't want to go and live over there."
