Best known to Brits as Alan Partridge, comedian Steve Coogan has had a career in film spanning almost 40 years. However, his frock flicks roles didn’t pick up until the early 2000s, and he’s been going strong in historical films and TV shows since then, in a broad range of genres from the dramatic to the irreverent, but always extremely enjoyable to watch.
