Steve Coogan

Coogan and Brydon are ready for another “Trip”

Article: Coogan and Brydon are ready for another “Trip”

Get ready for some serious film nerd heresy: I think “The Trip” is the best of the three Michael Winterbottom/Steve Coogan collaborations. Yes, better than the meta madness of “Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story.” Yes, even better than the cult classic “24 Hour Party People.” I didn’t write a review — it being…

Steve Coogan Joins Punk Biopic “Good Vibrations”

Article: Steve Coogan Joins Punk Biopic “Good Vibrations”

Hilarity peddler Steve Coogan rocked into stardom with “24 Hour Party People” and his portrayal of the British music scene’s now legendary impresario, Tony Wilson. The Playlist (via ScreenDaily) reports that he’s joined the cast of another UK music flick, this time about Belfast’s godfather of punk, Terri Hooley. Hooley’s tale centers around the record…

Trailering: “Our Idiot Brother”

Article: Trailering: “Our Idiot Brother”

On August 26, we’ll get to see one of the most oxymoronic creatures in the film world: the big indie. “Our Idiot Brother” stars a cast worthy of any major Hollywood production: Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, Emily Mortimer, Steve Coogan, Rashida Jones, Kathryn Hahn, Adam Scott, and Paul Rudd as the titular hero, a genial…

The Wonderful World of Steve Coogan

Article: The Wonderful World of Steve Coogan

Steve Coogan is a comic genius. And at 1 p.m. ET today, you can witness his unique brand of humor in Michael Winterbottom’s “Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story.” In the film, Coogan stars as himself, as he works with a cast and crew attempting to film Laurence Stern’s “unfilmable” novel “The Life and…

Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon Take a “Trip” With Michael Caine

Article: Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon Take a “Trip” With Michael Caine

To promote their new series “The Trip,” a tour of English restaurants with comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon, the BBC posted a brief snippet of the duo fighting over their impressions of Michael Caine. The results are epic (even if Brydon’s the clear winner): Not the first time these two have faced off in…

‘Tristram Shandy: A Cock & Bull Story’

Article: ‘Tristram Shandy: A Cock & Bull Story’

Michael Winterbottom’s Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story is a subtly hilarious movie about the making of a movie. It is a far cry from Winterbottom’s look at Manchester nightlife in 24-Hour Party People.The story follows a crew of producers and actors as they attempt to make a movie based on Laurence Sterne’s “The…

Chris Morris and the Roar of “Four Lions”

Article: Chris Morris and the Roar of “Four Lions”

Perhaps one of the most unusual sights of the Sundance Film Festival was seeing British comedy legend Chris Morris walking around and doing Q&As after screenings of his “jihadi comedy” “Four Lions.” Infamous in Britain for his shows “The Day Today” (which helped launch the career of Steve Coogan) and “Brass Eye,” Morris is generally…

Steve Coogan = 2009 Spirit Awards host.

Article: Steve Coogan = 2009 Spirit Awards host.

Just announced: Steve Coogan is set to host the upcoming Spirit Awards on February 21st. With Russell Brand having kicked things off by hosting the MTV Video Music Awards, we now only need Ricky Gervais as the Academy Award host to have the requisite three British comedians to make a trend piece!

“Oh, my God, I’m kissing Spicoli.”

Article: “Oh, my God, I’m kissing Spicoli.”

Yet again, the world in quotes: “The first kiss of the movie was out on Haight Street, with, like, 200 people watching, outside. It was a crane shot–I’m sure in the end it will be a really cool shot, but it starts close and then it takes maybe a minute. That’s a long time on…

Squandering Comedic Talent

Article: Squandering Comedic Talent

Finding a good vehicle for a great comedian can be tough — the ability to be funny doesn’t always come hand in hand with the ability to act, and the film needs to work with a comedian’s persona and particular strengths. A few recent or upcoming films have done brilliantly bad jobs of this —…
