BIOGRAPHY OF STEVE COOGAN
Actor, comedian and television producer, Steve Coogan, born Stephen John Coogan, was born on October 14, 1965 in Middleton, England. With an innate talent for imitation, Steve graduated from Manchester Polytechnic School of Theater and began his career as a comedian by taking part in the TV series. Spitting Image (1984), satirical spectacle whose protagonists are outrageous latex puppets who make fun of political issues.
An exceptional transformer, Coogan makes himself known to the general public through his numerous extras on the British talk show Saturday Zoo and, thanks to his hilarious imitations and the comic characters he wears – first of all the politically incorrect Alan Partridge -, he quickly becomes one of the most well-known faces of the BBC. The debut on the big screen comes in 1995 with the fantasy film The magic key, directed by Frank Oz. In 1996 he was in the cast of the drama film directed by Terry Jones The wind in the willows, while the following year he gets the part in the comedy of Malcolm Mowbray Love and revenge.
After a few years of hiatus in which he devoted himself mainly to the small screen, Coogan made his return to the cinema in 2002 with the starring role in the film 24 Hour Party People, comedy-drama in which the actor plays Tony, the founder of the independent record label Factory Records, producer of some of the most popular bands of those years. In 2005, yet another important role arrives. In fact, Steve takes on the role of an eccentric English inventor intent on circumnavigating the globe, in the comic reinterpretation of the book by Jules Verne Around the world in 80 days signed by Frank Coraci. Two years later, however, in 2006, he starred alongside Kirsten Dunst in the film by Sofia Coppola Marie Antoinette, playing the Count Mercy d’Argenteau.
In the same year, he steps into the shoes of the tiny Roman general Gaius Octavius in the film A night at the museum (2006), a role he will also reprise in the blockbuster sequels A night at the museum 2 – Escape (2009) and A night at the museum 3 – The Pharaoh’s Secret (2014), all signed by the Canadian Shawn Levy. Between 2007 and 2008 he is in the cast of two action comedies: Hot Fuzz (2007), directed by Edgar Wright, is Tropic Thunder (2008), directed by Ben Stiller. Also in 2008, Coogan carves out the starring role in the irreverent comedy directed by Andrew Fleming Hamlet 2, playing a failed actor who teaches acting at a school in Arizona.
In 2010 he is Hades, the feared god of the underworld, in the first chapter of the fantasy saga Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, while a few months later we find him in the cast of the action comedy The backup cops directed by Adam McKay. After 2012, in which he is in the cast of the sentimental comedy Ruby Sparks and in that of the drama film What Maisie knew, comes the most acclaimed work of the English actor: Philomena (2013), directed by Stephen Frears and based on Martin Sixsmith’s novel “The Lost Child of Philomena Lee”. The drama, which he wrote and co-starred with Judi Dench, earned him two Academy Award nominations for Best Picture and Best Non-Original Screenplay and, in the same year, he also won the BAFTA for Best Screenplay.
In 2014, the now hugely popular Coogan plays the fictionalized version of himself in the film The Trip to Italy, written and directed by Michael Winterbottom. In 2017, he stars alongside Richard Gere in the political thriller The Dinner, film adaptation of Herman Koch’s best-selling “The Dinner”. The following year he plays the role of Ollio in the film directed by Jon S. Baird Laurel & Hardy, which sees cinema’s most famous comic duo on their last tour of England during the 1950s.
In 2018 he is in the cast of the Netflix original The only one, a dramatic comedy centered on the story of a young couple struggling with a tragic event that disrupts their lives. In the same year he is the protagonist together with Paul Rudd of A Modern Family, a comedy in which Coogan plays an extravagant TV presenter who has to contend with sudden fatherhood. In 2019, however, he is in the cast of The professor and the madman with Mel Gibson is Sean Penn, biopic that tells the story of the first publisher of the Oxford English Dictionary, Sir James Murray.
