Thomson and Thompson Casting Rumor for 'Tintin' Confirmed


Accordingly, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost will indeed team up to portray bumbling detectives, Thomson and Thompson, in the live-action adaptation of 'Tintin'.

The circulating rumor about Simon Pegg and Nick Frost being cast as Thomson and Thompson in "Tintin" may end up to be true after all. Ain't It Cool News (AICN) recently let out confirmation that both Pegg and Frost are coming in to play the pair of clumsy detectives who are almost completely alike.

If this story is proven to be true as words from both Paramount and Sony of this latest casting reports have yet to be thrown out, the two English actors could be joining Andy Serkis, who is set to play Tintin's best friend, Captain Haddock, in the live-action project. Before this comic book adaptation, Pegg and Frost have worked together in British sitcom "Spaced".

Chronicling the adventures faced by a junior reporter known simply as Tintin and his friends, his white dog named Snowy, the lunatic Captain Haddock, the muddled genius Professor Calculus and the Thompson Twins, "Tintin", the first of three movies, will be directed by Steven Spielberg. It is due for 2010 release. Thomas Sangster, the young actor originally attached to play Tintin, has bailed out from the project due to scheduling conflicts.
