I’ve decided I need a new cause, and I’ve found it. Strangely enough, a non-Lost related cause I had a while back was Simon Pegg for Scotty in the new Star Trek film. That’s a wagon I lept on, rather than started, but was happy to mash for it a bit. Now, I get to torture you guys with my fanboy will-power. I want Simon Pegg to do an episode of LOST.
The reason why is: because. The fact of the matter is, Pegg is an awesome actor who has risen from the cult fandom to become a ‘name’ comodity, and he loves LOST. The evidence is on Daily Record where Pegg said:
“I MET Matthew Fox and I’m a big fan of Lost and I saw him at a party and he saw me and he went, ‘Oh man, Simon Pegg!”
In response to the question of the last time he was starstruck. Bells went off. Pegg is a LOST fan, there are British characters on LOST, it could all happen.
Now some might consider this stunt casting, personally I look at it as a guy who would probably be compatible with a character that will be written at some point who would work exceptionally well with the fabric of the show. Maybe I’m crazy… you tell me.
