Ten years ago, four minutes would probably have been about enough.
But after three flavours of Cornetto, two Star Trek s, 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.
