Pegg 'top boys' night out choice'

Simon Pegg is the top celebrity choice for a boys' night out, beating Bruce Willis and Russell Brand.

The Hot Fuzz actor headed a poll of male film stars chosen when men were asked to name their ideal companion for a night on the town.

The poll was commissioned by Sky Movies HD ahead of their Men Behaving Badly season this month.

Pegg - star of Spaced and Shaun Of The Dead - drew a fifth of the votes, while Die Hard tough guy Willis was second. Ricky Gervais came third.

Ian Lewis, director of Sky Movies said: "Simon Pegg is a fine choice for a wingman - the perfect combination of funny, British and skilled in zombie fighting."

The Sky season from October 3-9 features 19 films showcasing male bonding and bad behaviour including The A Team, Easy Rider and the Jackass 3 premiere.
