…Simon Pegg is a good actor:

He’s got a charming British accent

He writes much of his own material

He is amusing even in movies that are not very good

He’s in Hot Fuzz

He’s in Shaun of the Dead

He was brilliant as Scotty in the new Star Trek

He can manage to be both charming and believable in his roles

He’s willing to abase himself for a laugh

He knows how to use a cricket bat

He can film a scene with Bill Nighy without cracking up
