Steve Coogan"It's kind of a Dick Van Dyke song, "Chim Chiminy," except with the C-word."

Although he explodes onto the screen (literally) in the big-budget spoof 'Tropic Thunder,'Steve Coogan's biggest summer role is in a little indie satire called 'Hamlet 2.'

As Dana Marschz, an obtuse but optimistic actor-turned-drama-teacher trying to mount a sequel to Shakespeare's tragedy, the British comedian gets to show off his silly and sensitive sides, as well as belt out numbers like 'Rock Me Sexy Jesus.'

We caught up with the actor at Comic-Con and asked him about the flick, his signature character and whether he'll pull a Ricky Gervais and bring his U.K. standup tour stateside.
