steve-coogan300He might be most famous for portraying pedants in I’m Alan Partridge and The Trip, but British comedian Steve Coogan will be playing a famous porn baron in a new biopic according to reports.

The film with a working title of Paul Raymond’s Wonderful World of Erotica will recount the career of the property owner millionaire who founded an empire of pornographic magazines as well as opened the Raymond Revuebar strip club in Soho.

Paul Willets – who wrote Raymond’s biography (Members Only: The Life and Times of Paul Raymond) last year – claimed last weekend at the Westminster Reference Library that discussions for Coogan to appear as Raymond in the film adaptation of the biography were “well advanced” according to Digital Spy.

Coogan also used the press call as a chance to tell reporters how much he enjoyed making The Trip and that he was considering making a second series. Altogether now… “Have I got a second series?”
