‘Burke and Hare’: Budding Brit businessmen

Co-star Simon Pegg pegs character in today's terms

Dark and disturbing ways returned to the U.K. on Oct. 25 with the world preem of Entertainment Film’s black comedy “Burke and Hare” at Chelsea’s Curzon. Simon Pegg and Andy Serkis play the 19th-century grave robbers who became Edinburgh’s leading medical-corpse dealers.

Pegg mused on how the duo might fare on “The Apprentice” with Brit host Alan Sugar:

“They’d probably make Alan Sugar very happy with their ingenuity and commitment to business. Hare had an amazing understanding of the capitalist infrastructure, so I’m sure he’s related to Sugar somewhere!”
