Dominic Cooper is playing Uday Hussein, the son of Saddam Hussein in Lee Tamahori’s The Devil’s Double. Cooper is also playing Latif Yahia, the man whose memoir the film is based on and who served as Uday Hussein’s double. So Cooper is playing not one, but two Arab men. Is he Arab? I could not find any evidence indicating that he is anything other than English. I guess there is a shortage of Arabs in the world, especially Iraqis, considering the US has been killing them since well, 1990ish.
