Steve Coogan is Alan Partridge

Steve Coogan (Our Idiot Brother) reprises his most popular role in the 2013 film comedy Alan Partridge.

A famous local radio DJ and one-time talk show host, Alan (of Norfolk, England) finds himself at the center of a siege when a disgruntled fellow DJ (Colm Meaney, Get Him to the Greek) decides to hold their station hostage after learning that he’s getting sacked by the new management.

The fictional character of Partridge was created by Coogan and Armando Iannucci (HBO’s Veep) for the BBC Radio program On the Hour in the early Nineties. The character has since gone on to appear another radio series, three television series and numerous TV and radio specials (including appearances on BBC’s Comic Relief), and now, his first feature-length movie.

Directed by Declan Lowney, the R-rated Alan Partridge »

Film Review: British Import ‘Alan Partridge’ With Steve Coogan is Just Plain Silly

26 April 2014 2:51 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Before earning Oscar nom validation for his “Philomena” screenplay last year, British comedian Steve Coogan led a separate life as Alan Partridge, a dopey media personality who symbolized the danger of empowering clowns like him with a microphone, whether on a news program, a late night show, or in a radio booth.

Rating: 3.0/5.0

A daffy concoction co-created by Armando Iannucci (of HBO’s “Veep” and the satirical film “In the Loop”), the character has bopped around different BBC series for years, until now getting his first feature film. With Coogan given a rare opportunity to show his prowess stateside as a lead comedian (he has appeared in “The Other Guys,” “Tropic Thunder,” and “Our Idiot Brother” in side roles), this British comedy does have a special charm. But even a certified comedian can only take a spotty collection of bits so far.

T.J. Miller To Star In Disney’s Marvel Film Big Hero 6

29 March 2014 6:02 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If you’ve never heard of Big Hero 6, you probably aren’t alone. The animated film, set to hit theatres this fall, is being produced by Disney and will be their first animated effort based on a Marvel property.

Set in the fictional city of San Fransokyo, the story centers on a young prodigy named Hiro Hamada and his robot Baymax. The two uncover a criminal plot and must join a team of inexperienced crime fighters, including bike messenger Go Go, sushi chef Wasabi No Ginger, magical-purse carrying barista Honey Lemon, and comic book fanboy/aspiring filmmaker Fred, to put an end to it.

Disney’s been playing things pretty close to the chest on this one, but we now know that comedian and actor T.J. Miller has joined the cast as Fred, and leaked the information himself a month ago without anyone batting an eyelash. Apart from being an amateur filmmaker, »

Kathryn Hahn Headlines M. Night Shyamalan's Next Movie

24 March 2014 5:06 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Comedienne Kathryn Hahn has been building an outstanding reputation as a solid supporting player and unforgettable scene stealer with appearances in Our Idiot Brother, Wanderlust, Girl, Parks and Recreation and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. For her next challenge, Hahn is doing something really risky. She'll leave comedy behind to tackle a thriller from the once celebrated writer-director M. Night Shyamalan. Why? Your guess is as good as ours. The Wrap reports Hahn will star alongside child actor Ed Oxenbould (Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day) in the thriller Sundowning. This news hits as production is nearly wrapped in Shymalan's Pennsylvania-based shoot. Hahn'll play the single mother of two young children, a girl and her protective brother, potrayed by Oxenbould. What should be a simple visit to the kids' grandparents becomes a nightmare when "things go very wrong." Shyamalan is keeping mum on any other »

Girls 3.07 “Beach House” Lays the Main Characters’ Relationships Bare

16 February 2014 11:00 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Girls, Season 3, Episode 7: “Beach House

Written by Jenni Konner, Lena Dunham, and Judd Apatow

Directed by Jesse Peretz

Airs Sundays at 10 Pm on HBO

Girls continues its focus on character relationships by taking a break from its ongoing plot to show Hannah (Lena Dunham), Marnie (Allison Williams), Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet), and Jessa’s (Jemima Kirke) trip to Marnie’s mom’s beach house. Along the way, Elijah (Andrew Rannells) with his new boyfriend Pal (Danny Strong) in tow to add some comic relief and tension to the conflict between the four lead characters. As the characters strip off their clothes (Hannah is in a bikini for most of the episode.), they also expose their wounded psyches and flawed personalities. This episode has its share of hilarious moments, like the previous one, but the humor is counterbalanceed by the conflicts between characters. All their problems are on display from Marnie »

Watch: First Teaser For 'Office Space' Creator Mike Judge's New HBO Comedy Series 'Silicon Valley'

8 February 2014 9:38 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Mike Judge is going back to work. The brains behind one of the best workplace comedies of all time, "Office Space," is once again returning to the well of punching the clock, this time with a modern age twist, with HBO's "Silicon Valley." And yes, as one of our 20 Most Anticipated TV Shows Of 2014, we're very excited for this one. Perhaps the most promising thing about the new series is that it's given a handful of people who aren't household names yet a big chance to shine. The ensemble cast includes Thomas Middleditch ("Fun Size," "The Kings Of Summer," "The Wolf Of Wall Street"), Playlist fave T.J. Miller ("Successful Alcoholics," "Our Idiot Brother"), Zach Woods (Gabe from "The Office"), Martin Starr ("Freaks & Geeks," "Party Down"), Kumail Nanjiani ("Franklin & Bash"), Josh Brener, Christopher Welch, and Amanda Crew. It's a pretty solid lineup. And the premise, following a bunch of tech nerds »

Ant-Man: Paul Rudd Talks Character Prep and Rashida Jones

29 January 2014 2:40 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Paul Rudd was recently in Park City Utah, where he was promoting his upcoming romantic comedy spoof They Came Together. He was asked about prepping for his role as thief-turned-hero Scott Lang in Ant-Man. The actor couldn't say much, but he did explain some of the prep that has gone into creating Scott Lang for the screen, and teased that he doesn't know whether or not Rashida Jones has signed onto play Janet van Dyne, aka The Wasp.

In taking on such a huge project as a Marvel adventure, Rudd says he's been watching a lot of Marvel movies and reading a lot of comic books.

""Well, It's all just kind of starting, so it's really cool. I'm very excited about it. I read some comics and seen some [Marvel] movies and I knew Edgar Wright for many years. The whole thing that it's actually happened, that I got the part is still kind of surreal. »
