Simon Gives Hound a Role

August 27, 2008

Simon Pegg may have a canine counterpart.

The film actor, from Brockworth, has revealed he has plans to make his dog Minnie a star.

Simon, 38, who shot to fame in movies Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, has said his canine pal had a part in his new film How to Lose Friends and Alienate People, but was written out because she wouldn’t behave on set.

“I have written her a part in my next movie instead and I want to make sure she’s in it next time. I want her to be bigger than Lassie,” he said.

Simon, who has a role in the new Star Trek film, was recently made godfather to Gwyneth Paltrow’s daughter Apple.
