I love Simon Pegg! Last year, I sat down with the actor for “The World’s End” where I told him I went out for a pub crawl. He remembered it all! Pegg surprised me by saying that in the beginning of my interview with him and director Peter Chelsom (“Hannah Montana: The Movie,” “Serendipity,” “Shall We Dance”).
This interview is all about being happy! How do you find your inner happy? And has Pegg found his? Take a look at my interview with the actor and Chelsom for “Hector and the Search for Happiness” due out in U.S. theaters on Sept. 19th!
Official “Hector and the Search for Happiness” summary:
Hector (Simon Pegg) is a quirky psychiatrist who has become increasingly tired of his humdrum life. As he tells his girlfriend, Clara (Rosamund Pike), he feels like a fraud: he hasn't really tasted life, and yet he's offering advice to patients who are just not getting any happier. So Hector decides to break out of his deluded and routine driven life. Armed with buckets of courage and child-like curiosity, he embarks on a global quest in hopes of uncovering the elusive secret formula for true happiness. And so begins a larger than life adventure with riotously funny results. Based on the world-wide best-selling novel of the same name, Hector and the Search for Happiness is a rich, exhilarating, and hilarious tale from director Peter Chelsom, starring Simon Pegg, Toni Collette, Rosamund Pike, Stellan Skarsgard, Jean Reno and Christopher Plummer.

The brave dolphin Winter returns alongside Nathan Gamble (Sawyer), Cozi Zuehlsdorff (Hazel), Ashley Judd (Lorraine), Harry Connick Jr. (Dr. Clay Haskett), Austin Stowell (Kyle), and Morgan Freeman (Dr. Cameron McCarthy) for the sequel “Dolphin Tale 2.” Director Charles Martin Smith also returns to the world of Winter as well as the pesky but adorable Rufus the Pelican.
Is the sequel better than the first? Take a look at my review of “Dolphin Tale 2!”
Here’s the official synopsis of “Dolphin Tale 2”
Warner Bros. Pictures and Alcon Entertainment's "Dolphin Tale 2" continues the story of the brave dolphin Winter, whose miraculous rescue and recovery-thanks to a groundbreaking prosthetic tail-made her a symbol of hope and perseverance to people around the world and inspired the 2011 family hit movie "Dolphin Tale." The film reunites the entire main cast, led by Harry Connick, Jr., Oscar (R) winner Morgan Freeman ("Million Dollar Baby"), Ashley Judd, Kris Kristofferson, Nathan Gamble, CoziZuehlsdorff, Austin Stowell, and, of course, the remarkable dolphin Winter as herself. Charles Martin Smith, who directed "Dolphin Tale," wrote the sequel and is again at the helm. It has been several years since young Sawyer Nelson (Gamble) and the dedicated team at the Clearwater Marine Hospital, headed by Dr. Clay Haskett (Connick, Jr.), rescued Winter. With the help of Dr. Cameron McCarthy (Freeman), who developed a unique prosthetic tail for the injured dolphin, they were able to save her life. (C) Warner Bros
