I had a tremendous opportunity to sit down and do an interview with Simon Pegg about his role as Bob the cat in the upcoming movie Luck. You probably recognize him from his roles in Star Trek, Mission Impossible, and Ice Age. I am a long-time fan so this was something I really enjoyed being a part of.
“Luck” will premiere globally on Apple TV+ on Friday, August 5th. This was such a fun experience! You can listen to all of it (I highly encourage it) but be sure to list at around 15 minutes for my question for Simon. I asked him if he was able to do improv while recording his part. Listen to the interview above to see his answer.
