With Hamlet 2 conquering this year's Sundance and a key role in Tropic Thunder, Steve Coogan was having one helluva 2008. That is, until Russell Brand usurped nearly all of his buzz when he stole the show as host of the VMAs in September. All is not lost, though: Vulture buddy Nikki Finke is now reporting that Coogan is set to host the Film Independent Spirit Awards in February. Just make sure Courtney Love isn't on the guest list and everything oughta be kosher. [DHD]
