Europe is scooters. Europe is five young people on one bench sharing a chocolate bar. Their idea of entertainment and fun is so much different than ours, which is exactly why a movie about them would be funny.

    Star Trek Into Darkness [2013]
  • An "in joke" reference is made to Simon Pegg when he is trying to open the bay doors during Kirk and Khan's boarding attempt. The security guard asks Scotty to "show his other hand". It is common knowledge to Star Trek fans that James Doohan never revealed both hands in any of the original series because of the loss of one of his fingers (lost in combat during the D-Day invasion while storming the beach).
  • Christopher Doohan: The son of the original Scotty James Doohan, makes a cameo appearance in the film as a Transport Officer alongside the current Scotty Simon Pegg.
    Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation [2015]
  • Tom Cruise and Simon Pegg performed all their own driving stunts. The stunt coordinator told Simon Pegg that Cruise was going to do all the driving because he didn't have a driver better than him.
  • Benji Dunn (Simon Pegg) mentioned in Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol that he wanted to wear a face mask. Although he appears to wear one in this movie, that scene turns out to be an impossible outcome of his mission.
    Star Trek Beyond [2016]
  • Writer Simon Pegg and director Justin Lin made the decision of making Sulu gay as a nod to original actor George Takei, who has since become a prominent LGBT rights activist. However, Takei has since stated his disagreement with this decision as that was not Gene Roddenberry's intention for the character Hikaru Sulu.
  • Simon Pegg identified the space station as "Starbase Yorktown" in early interviews. "Yorktown" was the original name of the starship in Gene Roddenberry's early script treatments for the original [Star Trek] series, before this was changed to "Enterprise".
  • Simon Pegg revealed in a press conference that the character Jaylah, was inspired by Jennifer Lawrence in the film Winter's Bone. "We were trying to create this very independent character. But we didn't have a name for it," Pegg said. "So we just called it 'Jennifer-Lawrence-In-Winter's-Bone.'" "That's a long name," the writer and actor joked. "So it started getting tiring always saying, well Jennifer-Lawrence-In-Winter's-Bone is fighting here. So then we started calling her J-Law. And then she became Jaylah."
    Beauty and the Beast [2017]
  • [?] Jean Dujardin was strongly considered, and was the filmmakers' choice, for the role of Lumière. Some early sources suggest that Simon Pegg was briefly considered for the role of Lumière, however, nothing came about it.
