Simon Pegg and Nick Frost Interview for “The World’s End!” They Taught Me How to Drink!

Uploaded on Tuesday 20 August 2013


I love these two! Not only are they great comedic actors, they’re also fun to talk to! “The World’s End” inspired me to imbibe immediately after watching the film. So both Simon Pegg and Nick Frost were teasing me about my own pub crawl (okay, not too much of a crawl, I only visited one pub).

In the film directed by Edgar Wright (and co-written by Pegg and Wright), Pegg (Gary) and Frost (Andy), along with Paddy Considine (Steven), Martin Freeman (Oliver), and Eddie Marsan (Peter) try to relive their glory days by going on the Golden Mile – visiting twelve pubs culminating with The World’s End bar. They weren’t quite successful decades ago and this time, they want to finish it by hook or by crook even when they start noticing something odd about their old town of Newton Haven.

And let me tell ya, I love this movie – it’s funny with equal measures of thrills and drama. You will not be disappointed! “The World’s End” is definitely a great addition to their Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy (which includes “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz”).

In this interview, we talked about:

*** The film put me in a good mood to go on my own The Golden Mile
*** I wish I was drunk when I was watching the movie
*** The film perfectly blends humor and drama and it works!
***Their characters are much more layered this time
*** We should petition Cornetto Ice Cream to be here in America
*** What’s the secret to finishing The Golden Mile
