Hector and the Search for Happiness

While we're not sure whether or not Simon Pegg has a secret cameo in Star Wars: Episode VII, we know that he'll definitely be in Hector and the Search for Happiness, because he's the titular character. The Star Trek franchise regular and frequent Edgar Wright collaborator plays an eccentric psychiatrist, stuck in a rut, who decides to find true happiness my literally looking for it around the world. Rosamund Pike, Christopher Plummer, Toni Collette, Stellan Skarsgård, and Jean Reno all pop up in the film that looks like a charming little film, and certainly something different for Pegg in this latest UK trailer. Watch!

Here's the latest UK trailer for Hector and the Search for Happiness from HeyUGuys:

Hector and the Search for Happiness is directed by Peter Chelsom, who wrote the script with newcomer Tinker Lindsay and Swedish filmmaker Maria von Heland, based on Francois Lelord's book of the same name. Hector (Simon Pegg) is an eccentric yet irresistible London psychiatrist in crisis: his patients are just not getting any happier! He’s going nowhere. One day, armed with buckets of courage and an almost child-like curiosity, Hector breaks out of his sheltered vacuum of a life into a global quest to find out if happiness exists. especially for Hector. Relativity Media releases the film this fall on September 19th.

Rly? Happiness pronounced by someone as "uh penis"? I have never heard that in my life. Though, there is a woman in my office from a northern locale that pronounces "peanuts" with a barely audible "t" that's quite comical.

This gives me a kind of "Walter Mitty" vibe, but I like it. Going to definitely check this one out.
