New biopic


A barrel of laughs!
Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly are barely recognisable
as they transform into iconic comedy movie duo
Laurel & Hardy for new biopic

It was revealed earlier this year that they were set to take on the biggest names in cinematic comedy on the big screen. And now, Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly were pictured filming the world's most famous double act Laurel and Hardy for new flick Stan And Ollie on Monday in the West Country.

The pair have undergone a major transformation for the iconic roles for their latest BBC film based on the slapstick partners. Dressed in a blue three-piece suit, British actor Steve plays Englishman Stan Laurel in the movie centred around the duo's final tour.

Taking on the renowned comedy actor's mannerisms for the movie, the 51-year-old slipped on a knee-length jacket and covered his tresses under a navy beret as the cameras rolled. Flanked by his co-star, he looked barely recognisable as he performed in front of a blue screen on board a ship.

Oscar nominee John, also 51, was worlds away from his usual svelte self as he was fuller faced and baring a short but thick mustache as he portrays American Oliver Hardy for the motion picture.
