Ten years ago, four minutes would probably have been about enough.
But after three flavours of Cornetto, two Star Treks, one Tintin and a raft of indie hits, Pegg’s recent career isn’t exactly easy to cram into one video.
His latest film, Hector And The Search For Happiness, sees him trotting the globe pursuing the secret of success – an uplifting home-grown comedy that puts him on a par with Ben Stiller in Walter Mitty.
For his Career In Four Minutes, we asked Pegg about Hector, plus J.J. Abrams, Steven Spielberg, Edgar Wright and others on his road from super-geek to super-star.
Hector and the Search For Happiness is set to hit UK cinemas 15 August 2014.
