Dominic Cooper has been around long enough in the business to make his mark and offer audiences a familiar face who is always likely to deliver a memorable performance. Having recently plied his trade as James Bond author Ian Fleming in the impressive television series, Fleming, plus shifting into gear with the upcoming Need For Speed, we look back at six of Cooper’s best performances from times gone past.
It takes a strong actor to forge an unforgettable character on screen but Cooper showed his chameleon-like acting abilities with 2011’s The Devil’s Double as he took on his most challenging task yet – tackling two separate roles in one film. Portraying both the crazed loose cannon son of Saddam Hussein and the man who was forced into becoming his double, the man himself proved adept in switching between the two polar opposites and delivered a commendable overall performance.
Appearing as a wholly innocent individual thrust into a world of drugs, sex and the fear of death, Cooper soon transformed himself into the mirror image of Latif Yahia as he took a turn for the Jekyll and Hyde. His delivery of maniac Uday Hussein served up chills and thrills aplenty as he took to slaughter and the embodiment of evil in a career highlight.
