Re: Should Simon Pegg cut off middle finger out of respect for canon?
No, we require the exact opposite! If there's a scene where they surgically replace the finger, we will eventually need a scene where he loses it again and says "screw it!" to getting it re-replaced. What they need to do is have him lose it near the end of the film, or during the major action scene.
