Pegg set for Hollywood makover

celebrity

British TV comedian Simon Pegg has spoken of shaking off his nerdy reputation in favour of a Hollywood makeover as he prepares for a summer of blockbuster success.

Known for his distinct comedy brand of misfits and zombies, the actor has bagged his first romantic lead as a sought-after catch in Man Up, while his love interest instead plays the geek vying for his affection.

He will also star alongside Tom Cruise for a second time in the latest action-packed instalment of the Mission Impossible series, Rogue Nation.

Despite his upcoming roles in sci-fi flicks Star Trek 3 and Absolutely Anything, he still hopes to "move on" from his familiar type-cast roles.
