Note: Clips contain strong language.

His new film is In the Loop, a sort of spin-off of The Thick of It, involving an unnamed country in the Middle East, grim whisperings of military involvement, befuddled public servants and epically foul (and hilarious) tirades.

Iannucci's father is from Italy and his mother is from Glasgow, Scotland. He was born in Scotland.
