Ever since the start of his career, Simon Pegg has generally played “geeky” roles. He ran from zombies in Shaun of the Dead, helped out Tom Cruise in the Mission: Impossible films, and served on the Enterprise in Star Trek. But while the actor himself also has no problem being labelled a nerd, in 2019 he revealed a distinctly different new look.
Pegg’s personal trainer Nick Lower unveiled the actor’s new look on Twitter in March 2019. But the response on the social media platform was a little bit mixed. Some people labelled Pegg’s transformation as “amazing” and said he looked “great,” while others seemed quite horrified.
