Today (September 19) is the official opening of director Peter Chelsom‘s Hector and the Search for Happiness, starring Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) and Rosamund Pike (Pride and Prejudice, The World’s End). Pegg plays a trapped-in-routine psychiatrist who, in discovering his own unhappiness, travels the globe in search of what really gives people joy.

Pegg has certainly found happiness, with a wife, daughter, two dogs, and a job he adores. He’s also made some pretty  cool friends along the way, and whether it be on Twitter or Facebook (he does not have Instagram), Pegg takes one mean selfie.

From Pegg’s Twitter:

With celebrity chef Rachael Ray.

And this one, with NBC co-anchor and weather presenter, Al Roker.

… And British comedian and old friend Marilla Wex.

… AND Benedict Cumberbatch!

Here’s Pegg with singers Bryan Adams, Anastacia Lyn Newkirk, and Ricky Ross (of Steely Dan cover band Deacon Blues) on BBC Radio 2.

Road-tripping with Tom Cruise!

An attempted selfie with Pike.

And finally, a photo with friend and personal assistant, Claire Finbow.

And what social media is complete without some selfies alone?

 

BONUS! Shelfie:

 

Will you be seeing Hector?
