Simon Pegg is one of the too-rare comedic actors that can be just as funny off-screen as he is on it. His Twitter feed is a must-follow, and now a special feature from the “Star Trek Into Darkness” Blu-ray (via /Film) fills us in on what kind of high jinks the “World’s End” actor was up to during his time on the Starship Enterprise.
The prank that Pegg played on just about every main cast member involved something called “neutron cream.”
The story of neutron cream, or at least the one Pegg told the others on set, was that four dots needed to be applied to the face and two to each wrist in order to protect yourself from the potentially harmful sets of “Star Trek Into Darkness.” Pegg would then devise creative ways to let them in on the secret, of course, only after they’ve applied the cream to their face.
Watch the special feature after the jump!
“Star Trek Into Darkness” hits Blu-ray and DVD next week on September 10.
