Simon Pegg Rumored For Future ‘Star Wars’ Films Because Of All The Nerds

ENOUGH WITH THE STAR WARS/TREK CROSSOVERS! THESE WORLDS CAN’T COLLIDE ANY FURTHER.

*exhales*

I’m sorry. It’s just that I get so frustrated when people don’t respect the boundaries of these two universes. It’s anarchy. After J.J. Abrams was announced to take on the next Star Wars film, it was just a matter of time before people looked to that film and beyond to fill their need for inane fanboy rumors.

Enter Simon Pegg. The Shaun of the Dead star has crossed over in supporting roles to a couple huge films, both in Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol and the rebooted Star Trek.

The outcry for him to also join is a little on the nose, considering the subject matter and Abrams’ involvement, but maybe we could give toss him a bone and have him play Chewbacca. A short, slacker Chewbacca.
