Steve Coogan

As a comedic star in his native England, actor Steve Coogan never had to worry much about his appearance. But once the actor turned to Hollywood blockbusters like "Around the World in 80 Days" (2004), co-starring martial arts guru Jackie Chan, Coogan suddenly found himself doing crunches on his hotel room floor - strange for the creator of the paunched and poorly-dressed Alan Partridge of BBC fame. But like all great comedic talents, Coogan managed to mask his true self, whether through physical appearance, exaggerated personality or dead-on impression. A natural performer since childhood, Coogan lived behind a mask in a world of his own creation, which allowed him to transform himself in such diverse fare like Factory Records biopic "24 Hour Party People" (2002), Hollywood satire "Tropic Thunder" (2008), family-friendly hit "Night at the Museum" (2006) and sensitive drama "Philomena" (2013), as well as starring as a version of himself opposite friend Rob Brydon in the mockumentary "The Trip" (2011) and "The Trip to Italy" (2014), making Coogan one of the most interesting and promising talents to cross the Atlantic.
