Jude Law and Richard E. Grant talk Dom Hemingway

Dom Hemingway is hitting UK cinemas imminently, and it features a virtually unrecognisable Jude Law as the titular criminal.

Law piled on pounds, grew out some Wolverine-esque mutton-chop sideburns, and wore facial prosthetics to play safecracker Dom. Fresh out of prison after more than a decade at her majesty’s pleasure, the sweary, swaggering Londoner is looking to get even.

Having served his time quietly, he reconnects with his partner-in-crime and best mate Dickie (played by Richard E. Grant), and he travels to the south of France in order to collect the bounty he’s owed for his time. As you might guess, not everything goes quite according to plan…

Law and Grant have cracking double-act chemistry in the movie, and in our video below they talk about the funniest moments in the making of the movie, as well as Law’s ‘liberating’ transformation.

Co-starring Game Of Thrones ’ Emilia Clarke as Dom’s estranged daughter, Dom Hemingway opens in UK cinemas on 15 November 2013.
