Bill Nighy about playing the most important cop in Hot Fuzz
I did it because I love them and because they sweet-talked me. But Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright, who are the star and director respectively, and who also co-wrote the script of “Shaun of the Dead” are wonderful guys. They can write really funny jokes and they got everybody in this movie. It’s a big, daft, stupid cop movie. It’s basically city cop goes rural and Simon again plays the hero with Nick as his sidekick.
I’m the most important cop there is. I shouldn’t tell you this, not that it matters terribly much, but I’m a very important policeman. It’s my first time playing a policeman and I’m very proud to be the most important one in the whole picture.
