Simon Pegg, who was in talks to play British Lt. Archie Hicox in Quentin Tarantino‘s Inglorious Bastards, has had to bail because of a scheduling conflict, according to a post on Pegg’s Myspace page. Pegg would have acted alongside Mike Myers, who recently signed on to play a British general. An 8.16 post on “The Playlist” stating that actors are “dropping like flies” off of the WWII film is a reference to David Krumholtz having also left the project. Two flies, to be precise.
