The 45-year-old actor – who plays the role of junk dealer Unkar Plutt in the forthcoming flick Star Wars: The Force Awakens – likes Star Trek more because he’s contributed to the script for the third film in the rebooted series Star Trek Beyond.
Pegg – who played Enterprise engineer Scotty in the previous two films – said: ”I am bi-starrial. It’s a choice I don’t want to make … But it has to be ‘Star Trek’ now because I’ve written part of it but ‘Star Wars’ was a huge film for me growing up.”
Elsewhere, the Mission: Impossible star revealed how ”nervous” Tom Cruise was when he hung off the side of a plane for Mission: Impossible – Rouge Nation and joked that he’s ”worried” what dangerous stunt he’s going to attempt in the next installment.
Speaking on the Jonathan Ross Show, he said: ”Everybody was very nervous that day including him, you don’t usually see him nervous. He was focused but he looked like he was bricking it! I worry about what’s he going to do now and we’ve had this conversation a few times, ‘Seriously though what are you going to do now?’ Because we’re going to make ‘Mission: Impossible 6′ – I don’t know if I’m in it yet but fingers crossed – but literally what is he going to do? Jump off the moon?’ I’m worried about him, I think he could seriously hurt himself if he’s not careful!”
