Truth be told, it could be his years of experience in the biz -- starting off as a disc jockey, he worked on many radio shows and later in television, including "The IT crowd" and "The Day Today," which featured a very young Steve Coogan.

    In Theaters: 'Due Date,' 'Megamind,' 'For Colored Girls,' '127 Hours'

    With Halloween and all its customary horror movies behind us and long forgotten, this weekend seems to herald open season for awards contenders. Buzzed about awards-seeking films such as Danny Boyle's James Franco starring survival drama "127 Hours" opens in limited release against Tyler Perry's first possible award contender, the star-laden "For Colored Girls." Going head to head in the box office dollars race, lovable funny men Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifiankis tackle the road movie in "Due Date," while equally funny people Will Ferrell and Tina Fey lend their vocal talents to the animated "Megamind," for which children and their paren...
