It should come as no surprise to you that Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are two of the nicest and funniest guys you will ever meet. But they are also two of the quietest, at least on set. Like most comedic actors, they throw a lot of energy into their performances, and they could literally turn that Pegg / Frost kineticism on and off. That's not to say that it's fake -- it really isn't -- but that they are careful about timing it and using it. It's always fascinating to watch actors at work, but this was the first time I'd seen a comedic performance in action, and it honestly seems to take a lot more out of a performer than running, dodging, and shooting.
I've been to a few of these set visits now with Cinematical and I have to say, never did the sight of Famous People elicit so much enthusiasm and excitement among extras than Pegg and Frost. The ComicCon "attendees" could barely keep to their assigned circuits because they kept stopping to gaze at them. Even Pegg's dog Minnie was the focus of points, whispers and pleas to pet her because everyone was convinced she was Colin from Spaced. There's something incredibly refreshing about the supersized fame Pegg and Frost now enjoy. Just when you think it's all about pretty boys and girls, you see a group of young whippersnappers fall over themselves at the sight of Shaun and Ed.
But hey, enough rhapsodizing. These guys speak for themselves. Read on to see what they have to say about Paul.
