British actor Simon Pegg has signed a reported $1.8 million (GBP1 million) deal to pen his memoirs.
The Hot Fuzz star has signed a deal with publishers Hodder + Stoughton to release his autobiography, plus two more books.
A spokesman for the publishing house says, "Pegg writes for us but somehow the films appeal to America too. He is our biggest export. I don't think there is any British actor of his ilk who has been so successful."
