Even though they're notorious Star Wars fanboys whose friend and frequent collaborator is now directing the next installment of the storied science fiction franchise, The World's End stars Nick Frost and Simon Pegg have reiterated that they don't want to appear in Star Wars Episode VII, and would rather experience the film as fans.

''I don't want to be in Star Wars, I think it would spoil it,'' Pegg told The Age. ''When I saw Star Wars when I was a kid, I saw a bunch of people I'd never seen before with some lofty, very respectable older actors in senior roles. I would hope J.J. doesn't stunt-cast the film. It would be great to get some new peeps in it, it would be amazing.''

''I'd like to sit back as a punter and see what's going to come from J.J.'s mind,''  Frost added.

Pegg, who famously lied through his teeth to protect the "big secret" in Star Trek Into Darkness, often voices his discontent that social media and the fan press make it difficult to keep much of anything a secret, so it could be interesting to see how staying "unspoiled" works out for him.
