Steve Coogan

Hosted by

Steve Coogan is an actor, writer and producer whose credits include The Trip, Night at the Museum, Hamlet 2, Tropic Thunder and I'm Alan Partridge. His new movie is the Golden Globe-nominated Philomena. He talks with Kim Masters about wanting to make a movie that has something meaningful to say, to "contribute to the sum total of human happiness." Coogan also reflects on his career both in the UK -- where he's often been typecast -- and the US -- where he has a loyal but "under the radar cult following." He says he may be more famous in the UK but he's "hipper" in the US. Coogan also discusses his experience of being the object of "tabloid intrusion" and how fighting against that has brought him self-respect.
