Simon Pegg Wants Who To Play Doctor Who?

Simon Pegg is, in case you haven’t heard, awesome. And also opinionated, as only a nerd can be.

In wake of reports of a Doctor Who movie without Matt Smith, Pegg had this to say over Twitter:

“Why is everybody speculating about who should play the Doctor in the Doctor Who movie? Matt Smith is the Doctor, he should f***ing play him!”

He immediately followed that tweet up with a statement that he had no interest in taking away a role from a fellow actor, and that he’d already lived his Who dreams and died. So that’s that, for him.

How does the man pull off being both profane and gracious?
