Comedy Short featuring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.
4 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a reenactment of the scene from 'Shaun of the Dead' in Shaun's flat, when he and Ed lay out their game plan. The lines are all the same, however Nick Frost does an impersonation of Sean Connery, and Simon Pegg does a dead-on impression of Michael Caine. The short is named for Connery & Caine's 'The Man Who Would Be King'. It's worth watching just for the look on Simon Pegg's face as he tries desperately not to burst into laughter. It almost looks like he's holding back tears. This, like all of the extra features on the American DVD release, makes me envious of anyone who was lucky enough to work on the set of 'Shaun of the Dead'. It must have been a riot.
