This is a wonderful picture. I love his look and the expression on his face. The backdrop is perfect. However, I feel as though it is a little too tight on the top. It might be a bit better if you left just a little bit for his head to breathe.

Perhaps I am the only one daring enough to point out the blatant similarity between this photo and this one: Although somewhat disappointing, this photo is very well composed. I really appreciate the triangle formed by our friend's head and arms. And it is worth mentioning the tasy tone one more time. Sam, did you intentionally choose a widescreen-type size for the photos, seeing how they are film-related? If so, nicely done.

Great, clear shot Sam. I know how hard it is to shoot a moving subject, expecially human and capture what you're trying to present to your audience. This is a great, clear shot. Keep up the good work.

This is an excellent portrait. I live in the UK and have always been a big fan of Coogan's. His work with Armando Iannucci has created some of the funniest comedy drama I have ever seen.
This portrait puts hime in a pose of a 1970's british cabaret performer.

Yes, this is really great. I'm also based in the UK, and whilst being an enormous fan of all he's done to date, esp with Armando Ianucci and Chris Morris, his more usual performance image doesn't have the dramatic, stagey raconteur quality you've captured here. It's as if you've somehow caught the intelligence in his eyes (something he's normally very successful in hiding in his roles, indicating his acting skill).

This is an interesting angle on a talented personality. Cheers.
