It looks like Simon Pegg is set to join the cast of Ready Player One with the actor said to be in talks to join the cast.
It would mean Pegg working with director Steven Spielberg again, they already collaborated on the Tintin film a few years ago.
Pegg is in talks to play Ogden Morrow, co-creator of the OASIS.
Og’s appearance and personality are described as being “a cross between Albert Einstein and Santa Claus”. Hmmm….
If Pegg signs on he’ll join Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke and Ben Mendelsohn in the film which is due to be released in 2018.
