FROM THIS EPISODE

how_to_lose_friends.jpgActor and writer Simon Pegg (Spaced, Shaun of The Dead, Hot Fuzz) has found a way to integrate his pop-culture obsessions into movie and  TV projects. In  How to Lose Friends and Alienate People he plays a writer whose pop-culture obsessions get in his way. This time it's real.

Pegg reveals his fascination with the early Star War films and their relevance to American history, film school and the influence of George Romero and Ridley Scott, his collaborations with writer/director Edgar Wright, society's obsession with celebrity and zombies as a metaphor for our fears.
