    Pegg Plays Scotty in 'Star Trek' Movie
    March 25, 2008, 12:16 PM EST
    LOS ANGELES (AP) Simon Pegg won't be beaming up any differences for his take on starship Enterprise's chief engineer "Scotty" in the upcoming "Star Trek" film.
    "I am playing 'Scotty,' but James Doohan is 'Scotty,'" Pegg told The Associated Press at the "Run Fatboy Run" premiere afterparty at Les Deux nightclub Monday night.
    Doohan played "Scotty" in the '60s TV series and in several movies.
    "I tried to approach the role like he did. He's a Scottish engineer who works in outerspace. He's a bit of a brawler. I didn't try to facilitate change," the 38-year-old British actor said.

    In "Run Fatboy Run," which opens Friday, Pegg wears short-shorts as an fumbling Londoner who begins training for a marathon to impress his ex.
    He's more coy about what his Montgomery "Scotty" Scott will look like in the J.J. Abrams-directed "Star Trek," expected on the big screen next year.
    "I couldn't possibly tell you what I wear in 'Star Trek,'" Pegg said.
    Pegg said he finished shooting the film, which stars Chris Pine as Capt. James T. Kirk and Zachary Quinto as Spock, last week. Pegg said he's signed up to star in three potential "Trek" movies.
    "I'm looking forward to doing that for the next few years," he said. "Hopefully, I'll do a lot in between, too."
    Other celeb attendees at the "Run Fatboy Run" premiere included Pegg's co-stars Thandie Newton, India de Beaufort and Harish Patel; Oscar winner Diablo Cody; Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie of HBO's "Flight of the Conchords"; and John Krasinski, Eddie Izzard and Jonathan Silverman

    This is kind of old news but I'm still excited. Simon Pegg is lovely and will be fantastic and may just lure me into the theatre to see a film I have no desire to see.

    I really like Simon Pegg too. He'll be fine as Scotty. Cracked me up in Shaun of the Dead and Police Fuzz. Can't wait to see Run Fat Boy Run.

    Run Fat Boy Run was not fab but he was pretty funny. I loved Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz was pretty good but my all time favorite is his series 'Spaced'. It was brilliant.

    I'll have to check out "Spaced" through Netflix. I know the American version will not be the same.

    I thought that Zachary Quinto (Sylar on Heroes) was suppose to be Spock.

    edit: oh, I see that is listed now...must be blind....maybe they are having a flash forward otherwise why is Nimoy in it?

    I still can't believe they are remaking Star Trek, but if Simon Pegg's on board then...I might have to give it a shot.

    Not sure if there was an American version but the one I saw (I think there's only two seasons) was classic understated yet over the top Simon Pegg. And the woman who played Cheryl in 'The Royle Family' is the co-star and brilliant as well.
