Simon Pegg

Simon Pegg

Simon Pegg is one star John Rockley had to speak to...

Like six degrees of Kevin Bacon, we finally found the man who could get us to the man we wanted!

There are some moments when life gets a bit surreal.

As a huge fan of Simon Peggs' sitcom Spaced, John has wanted to talk to Gloucester's most famous son for ages.

He even met Simon once but felt too giddy to say anything!

This is proof that it's not what you know, but who you know.

Simon's dad John Beckingham is a big noise in the Gloucestershire jazz scene and when he came in to see him, he made Mr Rockley's day, with a phone call from Simon Pegg, who was filming his new movie "Run, Fat Boy, Run" on Hampstead Heath.
