Pegg: 'I'd Swap Acting For Directing'

British funnyman SIMON PEGG would like to swap acting for a more low-key role in showbiz - he wants to become a director.
The Shaun of the Dead actor wrote and starred in a number of British television shows before making the move into Hollywood movies, and is now considering working behind the camera.
And the star confesses the reason he wants to start directing is because he is sick of all the crap he has to deal with as an actor.
He says, "I think I'm ready now because I have a lot of ideas of my own. Part of me just wants to do that (directing) and f**k off out of the limelight.
"I completely understand why a lot of actors retreat into directing. You get to be part of the world of filmmaking, but you don't have to deal with any of the s**t."
