“The Devil’s Double” is an impressive feat on a lot of levels, but there’s no doubt that it’s the work of actor Dominic Cooper as two wildly different roles — the psychotic son of Saddam Hussein, Uday, and his reluctant body double, Latif Yahia — that absolutely sells the movie. Even though the acting effort was a fantastic success on Cooper’s part, there were some initial doubts about how the “Devil’s Double” production team would be able to pull it off.
“Even as I was writing this, I was thinking, ’I don’t know how the f— we’re going to do this,'” confesses writer Michael Thomas in this exclusive clip from the “Devil’s Double” DVD, in stores on Tuesday (November 22). “How are you going to get a performance out of one guy, then another performance out of the same guy at the same time, when they’re in practically every single scene?”
Well, if you’re wondering what the answer to that very troubling question is, look no further than our exclusive clip: Cooper and the rest of the “Devil’s” team explain exactly how they executed this imaginative cinematic trickery.
“The Devil’s Double” arrives on DVD on November 22.
