Book Review: ‘Nerd Do Well’ By Simon Pegg

Nerd Do WellNerd Do Well
A Small Boy’s Journey to Becoming a Big Kid
Hardcover | Paperback | Kindle
By Simon Pegg
Gotham Books
Release date: June 09, 2011

Despite what you’ve been lead to believe, Nerd Do Well is not an autobiography. Except that it is, but it isn’t… It’s a crafty book disguise designed by Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, Star Trek) as memoirs, within which he has been able to insert the true book: The Adventure of Suave Superhero Simon Pegg and his Amazing Robot Butler.

Yes, you read that accurately.

Stuffed very cleverly in between different chapters reviewing Pegg’s life is this crafty, and hysterical, tale of him as a secret agent superhero, with an automaton sidekick that he would have you believe bears absolutely no resemblance to any robot sidekick ever used. Get that vision of C-3PO out of your head right now, because Canterbury (the robot) is, at Pegg’s insistence, nothing like the Star Wars droid. (Pegg likewise insists that C-3PO is not gay, which I assure you that he is. My robot gaydar is of an excellent standard.)

Must Watch: Simon Pegg & Nick Frost Re-Create ‘Star Wars’

The Movie God   |  @   |

It’s hard to argue a better pair of actors who often collaborate with one another than Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz co-stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Their chemistry and the natural comedy that’s born from their back and forth banter is pure fried gold.

While on the set of their new movie, Paul, the duo decided to re-create George Lucas’s famed Star Wars saga using the same techniques seen in the movie Be Kind Rewind. The results, however, may not have been quite what they were hoping for.

You can see the video of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost re-creating Star Wars by continuing on below now!

PAUL-Banner Movie PosterPaul

UK release February 14, 2011
U.S. release March 18, 2011

PROBING INVESTIGATION

When considering writing a review for you, my American/worldwide cohorts, for the UK release of Paul, a whole month in advance of the U.S. screening, I had a problem. Every other bloody magazine/media has reviewed it… (and with reference to the current Empire mag, who I won’t plagiarize but I will say this: RESEARCH! Their article on Captain America1 was not as informed as my article. I was there man, you don’t know, I got the pictures man, 5 months before!!)

…and stole the best/cheesiest headlines: ‘Alien Nation’, ‘E.T. Rider’, and ‘Close Encounters of the NERD Kind’.

Bastards. I spent long arduous seconds creating ‘From OuterSpaced’, but that’s the kind of genius I am. I’m also an insider. Not a crew member of said film, no, I’m that type of Geek that knows enough about UFOs to be an expert. But that’s my bias, especially during the 1990s when you couldn’t avoid the stuff. And so in the course of this article, I scraped together the remnants of my vast DVD collection, including Spaced (see what I did there!?) Shaun of the Dead/Hot Fuzz boxset (£5 – Bargain) and purchased the Simon Pegg autobiography Nerd Do Well to look for clues that would lead to Paul.

A new trailer for the upcoming road trip comedy, Paul, has been released online. But unlike all of the previous trailers we’ve seen so far, this one is of the Red Band variety, which means you finally get to hear the vulgar tongue of the alien title character, Paul (Seth Rogen).

The movie stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as best friends who come to America and end up meeting an alien named Paul who needs their help getting home. Also starring is Jason Bateman, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Blythe Danner, John Carroll Lynch, and Sigourney Weaver.

The movie rejoins Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz duo Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as a pair of fanboys on their way to Comic-Con who discover an alien named Paul. Unlike most aliens we’ve come to know, Paul (Seth Rogen) is a foul-mouthed little fella who doesn’t quite fit the mold.

My favorite things to watch include Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and a British TV show called Spaced (the latter of which, if you haven’t seen it, is available to watch for free on Hulu and is fantastic).

What do all three of these have in common? They all star Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Imagine my excitement when the first trailer for their new movie Paul was released.

Watch it here below!

Paul follows two friends from England as they come to America for a comic book convention. After the convention they explore Area 51 where they find an alien named Paul, voiced by Seth Rogen. Also staring in the film is Kristin Wiig , Sigourney Weaver, Bill Hader, Jane Lynch, and Jason Bateman.

Geek Peek: First Glimpse At Nick Frost & Simon Pegg’s Alien Friend ‘Paul’

The Movie God   |  @   |

There’s been a heavy dose of excitement behind Greg Mottola‘s geek-friendly road trip comedy Paul for a long while. The movie re-pairs one of the best acting teams in movies today, Nick Frost and Simon Pegg, as a couple of quintessential fanboys named Clive and Graeme who meet an incredible acquaintance after attending the yearly San Diego Comic Con gathering (which just recently ended last weekend; read all of our coverage here!).

After their visit to Comic Con, the British duo also decide to see some other sights while in the area. One of their stops includes the mysterious Area 51, where they happen to bump into an extraterrestrial named Paul (voiced by Seth Rogen). The thing with Paul is that he isn’t like most aliens we’ve seen in movies and TV shows over the years, and actually has quite the vulgar tongue (or whatever anatomy aliens possess).

One thing those who have been so excited for was what Paul the alien would actually look like, and Bleeding Cool has your first glimpse. Click on over to the other side to check him out for yourself!

Simon Pegg & Nick Frost’s ‘Paul’ Has A Voice In Seth Rogen & A Great Comedic Cast

The Movie God   |  @   |

Simon & Nick

For those who are uninformed, Paul is a new movie from director Greg Motolla (Superbad and Adventureland) which stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz fame. The movie follows two super-geeks on a road trip to Comic Con, and a side-trip to Area 51 afterwards, which sees them finding a little alien named Paul who asks them to help him escape the government and get to his home planet.

If that wasn’t already the greatest thing ever, the supporting cast has been announced and it is pleasantly awesome. Joining Pegg and Frost will be: Seth Rogen, Jason Bateman, Bill Hader, and Kristen Wiig. Rogen is the main casting here, as he will be voicing the title character Paul — who is said to have a fairly filthy mouth in this expected R-rated comedy. No specific word on who the others will be playing, but they will surely add some humor along this comedic adventure.
