Taking on the iconic roll of Scotty in Star Trek: Into Darkness, Pegg managed to beam up his prized Starfleet badge to his own house.
He told BANG Showbiz,
“On the first film, every day we’d hand back our badge and I had a Starfleet ring,” he said. “This one, I stole my badge. It was on my costume when I got back to my trailer and it’s a beautiful little brass thing. And I put it in my bag.”
That’s one way to assure your future role. They can’t recast someone that doesn’t have the Starfleet badge.
