THE DEVIL'S DOUBLE

DOMINIC COOPER (Uday Hussein / Latif Yahia) is steadily emerging as one of the most exciting talents in the industry. Equally successful on stage and screen, Dominic continues to demonstrate his creative versatility.

Upcoming projects include the highly-anticipated comic book adaptation "Captain America: The First Avenger,” directed by Joe Johnston, where Cooper will portray the eccentric inventor, ‘Howard Stark;' and "My Week with Marilyn,” directed by Simon Curtis and co-starring Michelle Williams, Kenneth Branagh, and Judi Dench, with Dominic assuming the role of Milton Greene, the celebrated photographer and business associate of Marilyn Monroe. He is currently in production on the film adaptation of the best-selling Seth Grahame-Green novel, "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter,” starring in the highly-coveted role of ‘Henry Sturges,' who mentors and trains Lincoln in the ways of vampire hunting. The film is directed by Timur Bekmambetov, and co-stars Benjamin Walker, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Anthony Mackie and Rufus Sewell.

Dominic was most recently seen in Stephen Frears' "Tamara Drewe,” co-starring Gemma Arterton. Based on the graphic novel by Posy Simmonds, "Tamara Drewe,” is a modern reworking of Thomas Hardy's nineteenth century novel, "Far From the Madding Crowd.” Dominic was also recently seen in the coming-of-age drama, "An Education.” Directed by Lone Scherfig and written by Nick Hornby, "An Education” follows a 16 year-old girl's self-discovery in 1960s London as she begins a relationship with a 30 year-old playboy. The film, co-starring Carey Mulligan, Peter Sarsgaard, Alfred Molina and Emma Thompson, screened at the 2009 Sundance, Berlin, and Toronto Film Festivals, and was nominated for Best Picture by both the Academy Awards® and BAFTA Awards.

Dominic also starred in the box-office sensation "Mamma Mia!” The feature film adaptation of the beloved stage musical with an all-star cast including Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth, Stellan Skarsgård, Christine Baranski, Julie Walters and Amanda Seyfried set box office records worldwide and became one of the highest grossing films of all time in the UK.

Moreover, Dominic also starred in "The Duchess,” a film based on Amanda Foreman's biography of the scandalous 18th century English aristocrat, Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire. Directed by Saul Dibb, the period drama co-stars Keira Knightley and Ralph Fiennes.

Dominic's additional film credits include "The Escapist,” directed by Rupert Wyatt and co-starring Brian Cox and Joseph Fiennes; "Brief Interviews with Hideous Men,” directed by John Krasinski; the Tom Hanks-produced "Starter for Ten” co-starring James McAvoy; "Boudicca;” "I'll be There;” Neil Jordan's "The Good Thief;” and the Hughes Brothers' "From Hell.”

Dominic received his professional training at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA). Upon completion, he landed a role in "Mother Clap's Molly House” at the prestigious National Theatre under resident director Nicholas Hytner. He then starred in the Royal Shakespeare Company's "A Midsummer Night's Dream,” before rejoining Hytner at the National Theatre for "His Dark Materials” and "The History Boys,” which went on to win three Olivier Awards, including Best New Play.

Written by Alan Bennett, "The History Boys” later landed on Broadway, where it was the recipient of six Tony Awards, including Best Play. Dominic garnered Drama Desk and Evening Standard Award nominations for his lauded stage performance as the confident and seductive Dakin. Dominic also reprised the role in the acclaimed film adaptation of the play, where he was subsequently nominated for the Best Newcomer Award by the British Independent Film Awards and the Best Supporting Actor Award by the London Film Critics Circle.
