"No idea where this silly rumour about me attached to the new 'Star Wars' film came from but I can confirm that it's absolute Bantha poodoo," he tweeted. Of course, Pegg is noted to be a big "Star Wars" fan, he's already pals with Abrams, and there will be those who will say "He's not attached yet" etc, etc. But maybe we can just use this opportunity to say, maybe we can at least be a bit discerning with the endless rumors this franchise will generate in the many, many years to come? So for now, no Pegg getting his lightsabre on.
Anyway, let's end on a lighter note. In case you missed it, Pegg and pal Nick Frost made their own "Star Wars" movie a couple of years back, and you can watch it below.
