Rumor: Simon Pegg Cast in Star Wars Episode VII

From IGN:

The shoot for Star Wars: Episode VII recently wrapped up in Abu Dhabi after a lot of fanfare, and as usual director JJ Abrams did his best to keep details of the productin highly secretive (despite some set photo leaks). We all know what the principal cast of the film looks like since it was officially announced in a press release last month, but is that all the actors in the film?

The story is too old to be commented.

I'd be all for this if it turns out to be true...just not sure about the source. Seems kind of shaky to me. If anything, I could see it being a cameo (i.e. a junk dealer on Tatooine) but nothing major. Just sort of a fan nod.

Would this be the first actor to play a role in Trek and Wars?

he may well be, i certainly can't think of anybody else.

Unless you count the R2-D2 cameos.

Not sure if that's a good idea considering that he already plays a character in another huge sci-fi series, Star Trek.
