Simon Pegg and Nick Frost Recruit Comedy Gold
The much anticipated next comedy outing of real life bessie mates Simon Pegg and Nick Frost has picked up pace with the news that some of comedy’s most popular talents are to join in the fun.
The British pair’s latest opus, Paul– about an alien which has escaped from a military base – is now to be voiced by none other than Superbad writer Seth Rogan. And as if that wasn’t enough, Jason Bateman, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader and Jane Lynch have also been added to the cast.
In the movie, Pegg and Frost play British geeks Graham and Clive who accompany an alien on a road trip across the States after he escapes from Area 51.
Although there is no word yet on the roles that Bateman, Wiig, Hader and Lynch will fill, their presence in the film has elevated anticipation for its release to fever pitch.
Shooting begins on the Greg Mottola-directed, Pegg/Frost-penned movie in June.
