We think we know who Simon Pegg is playing in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
The costume is so far from complete in the above picture. He’s missing his smock and his mask (and he’s a really ugly one). He’s got a huge downturned nose. He’s rather troll-like. He’s an angry looking oaf. We’ve heard a lot about his character so I won’t reiterate that here.
It appears that Simon Pegg is playing Unkar Plutt in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Based on seeing Unkar and seeing the under-portion of his costume, I believe Pegg is almost certainly playing Unkar Plutt in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
