Must Watch: 'Star Wars' as Recreated by Simon Pegg and Nick Frost
Fortunately the overlord of Skywalker Ranch hasn't decided to remake his classic sci-fi opera Star Wars (though the 3D theatrical re-release of the entire saga begins next February), but I wouldn't put anything past George Lucas. However, a couple of our favorite Brits have made their own attempt at recreating the first installment in the classic film series (no, not The Phantom Menace). Simon Pegg & Nick Frost take the roles of droid buddies C-3PO & R2-D2 as they wander through the deserts of Tatooine. Unfortunately, only one scene ended up getting completed, and you'll see why after you watch this hilarious segment below.
Honestly, these guys are very much like a British, contemporary incarnation of Abbott and Costello. I could watch Frost and Pegg just eat oatmeal and would probably still laugh my ass off. Not only are they naturally hilarious, but they just feel like the kind of guys that every movie nerd could hang out with and just have an absolute blast. In addition, you can bet I'll be checking out Greg Mottola's Paul with Pegg and Frost when it hits theaters this weekend (check out the trailer here). I'm definitely be looking forward to laughing at many more Star Wars references in the extraterrestrial comedy. Who else thinks Pegg/Frost are hilarious?
