Simon Pegg took Disney role for daughter

Tuesday November 27, 2012

Shaun Of The Dead star Simon Pegg has taken a voiceover role in children's programme Phineas and Ferb to impress his superfan daughter. Generally famed for his adult film roles, the star was thrilled to bag a part in the series as the voice for Paul the delivery man and his father, and has revealed that the pair have bonded over their love of the show.

Thrilled to be on board, the 42-year-old gushed: "Recently, I tweeted a line from one of the songs featured in Phineas And Ferb - and a couple of weeks later I was asked to come and record some voice parts for the series, one for a character called Paul the delivery guy and the other for his father. I couldn't say yes quick enough."

"I'm a massive fan. My daughter and I fell in love with it immediately and we watch episode after episode as part of our morning routine. I can rewind sections up to 16 times just to watch her laugh and laugh. It is truly joyous."

The star may be thrilled about the news, but believes it to be incomparable to his daughter's excitement.

"Recording the characters has been a blast. I can't wait to see my daughter's reaction to watching her dad in our favourite show," Simon said.

It seems that programme is a favourite with celebrity parents. David Beckham, Jamie Oliver and Jonathan Ross have also taken roles in the show.

The episode, entitled the Delivery of Destiny, will be aired in Spring 2013 on the Disney XD show.
