Dominic Cooper plays both Uday Hussein and his double in the new film, 'The Devil's Double.'

Doppelgangers on opposite ends of the personality spectrum drive the new film The Devil’s Double. Actor Dominick Cooper plays Uday Hussein, the son of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein. He also plays Latif, the man forced to work as Uday’s double thanks to their uncanny resemblance to one another.

To find out how the halves mesh, Eight Forty-Eight was joined by Hank Sartin, a senior editor at TimeOut Chicago. Sartin regularly joins Eight Forty-Eight to talk film.
