WASHINGTON (AP) -- When filming starts on the new "Star Wars" movie this spring, Simon Pegg hopes to be there. Not as as cast member. He thinks JJ Abrams should cast unknowns for the lead roles. But as a spectator. The studio happens to be near where Pegg lives. He's a big Star Wars fan and is "extraordinarily excited about" visiting the set. And he says he'd be beside himself if he could sit in while John Williams records the music because he's his "all-time favorite composer."
