He tweeted: "Off to see alpha papa this afternoon with my wife for my birthday!
"i read for a part in AlphaPapa. Embarrassingly Im such a Coogan geek i was literally star struck of the script. Was V nervous, I wasn't cast."
The Steve Coogan comedy has topped the UK box office this week, taking £2.175 million.
