A face not to be pigeonholed
DOMINIC Cooper says his “strange” face is the secret to opening the door to all kinds of movie roles.
The 33-year-old Mamma Mia! star plays Saddam Hussein’s eldest son Uday – and his body double – in new film The Devil’s Double. He said: “I’m a bit strange looking so I get weird, squidgy-looking roles offered.
“I’m pleased with that because I’d hate to be pigeonholed.”
Cooper, who found fame as the object of a number of people’s affections in Alan Bennett’s The History Boys, also played the love interest in the recent film Tamara Drewe.
