Could Simon Pegg Play a Villain in Ant-Man?
According to ViewLondon, Simon Pegg has expressed interest on the Ant-Man film. He may just be joking around a bit, but it seems as though Simon Pegg wants a role in the film, as he stated in a recent interview:
"I don't think I'd want to play Ant-Man. I think it would be more fun to play a villain in that thing. I'd like to play a villain. But no, they're going to want some good-looking young American. That's a Marvel movie – funny-looking British actors don't play a big part in that unless they're bad."
Would Simon Pegg work as a villain in the film? I don't see why not, but I can't figure out who he could play. He's got a lot of talent, and is a lot of fun to watch on the big screen, but who could he play? Your thoughts?
Pegg is a god. If he wants to be in your damn Avenger's movie, you find a way. make him a goofy scientist or Shield agent for crying out loud. ITS SIMON PEGG!!!
honestly though, when any actor wants to be in these big budget movies, unless they want big bucks, you should squeeze them in. You can do it without making it a sleazy cameo.
Get it done Marvel.
I don't know who Egghead is but I will research him and then make my decision on him.
EDIT: After looking at the Egghead page, I totally think he would be great as Egghead. Having him be a mad scientist would be great. Also, how great of a team name is the Emissaries of Evil?
Simon Pegg is hilarious. Even in a simple interview he is able to get in some jokes! But, alas, he is correct on the whole Marvel wanting good-looking Americans... (Marvel Studios that is) to play the lead roles. Who is Ant-Man's villain though? I don't really follow the little/big guy, so the question is... Who would Simon Pegg play?
Whatever role he plays, they just NEED him in the movie. I absolutely love Simon Pegg and think he can play comedy, drama, and action all equally well. I doubt they'd make him the lead whether it were Pym, Lang, or O'Grady, but he should be in the movie.
