I wouldn't have pegged him for that role.

I'll annoy canon needs but..

His persona as the pussy whipped boyfriend in Spaced and Sean of the dead is spot on for Dengar.

Wow, so to get a role on the Clone Wars is all you have to do is make a career out of trashing Lucas for 13 years!? I'm a Lucas fan, I love the prequels, I love the Clone Wars. This is a retarded decision from Lucas, nothing I can say can defend this. Peter Serafinowicz isn't asked to reprise the voice of Darth Maul (allegedly) because of an interview from '99 where he trashed Episode 1, but Simon Pegg is asked to play Dengar? He shiats on the prequels every other day!

I know nothing about it. When that Clone Wars animated movie came out a few years ago and I saw the ads, I was like, "What did they use to animate this, a Nintendo 64?" The clip you linked to looks a lot better, though.

Wow. Those troopers have worse aim than the stormtroopers in the films. And that's saying something.

Look at, for example, 55 seconds in. He's just chilling, not waving his lightsabers around, and the troopers are still firing from all sides at him. Are they shooting other troopers? Who knows?

Never saw the Clone Wars movie, but I've seen some episodes of the show and, while the animation takes some getting used to, the stories are invariably smart and entertaining. They even manage to make the Anakin/Padme thing likeable.

I disagree. Clone Wars has some of the best animation ever shown on TV. But I'm sure you decided you hate it already.

Dude, Ant Man is never coming out. Edgar Wright has been attached to this film for years, and he keeps putting it off to do other movies. Marvel Studios didn't even put Hank Pym in The Avengers so Wright could use him for Ant Man, but they need they need to just let it go because Wright's clearly got no intention of actually doing the thing.

Christopher Lee - I'm trying to think of all of the franchises he's shown up in.

Let's see, Bond, Dracula, Sherlock Holmes, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, um...Harry Potter? Or was that Bill Nighy?

Pegg, on the other hand: Romero's zombies, Star Trek, Star Wars (now), Doctor Who, Mission Impossible, and...can you count Band of Brothers? I mean he had a walk on one liner, but still.

Seems like it's completely different types of franchises, with Pegg going more for the fanboy type and Lee going for the stately British franchise type.
