Finally, some interesting news regarding the Steven Spielberg, Peter Jackson adaptation of the Belgian comic, Tintin! According to JoBlo, funny men Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have been cast as the Thompson twins!  Pegg and Frost aren’t exactly spitting images of one another but their comedic gold! The duo are best known from their collaborations in the comedies Hot Fuzz and my personal favorite Shaun of the Dead.

The adventures of the popular Belgian comic-strip hero and his faithful dog Snowy will feature Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as Thompson and Thomson, the bumbling twin detectives who provide much of the comic relief in the famed graphic novels.
