Saddam Hussein is dead - or is he? If sources, and Lee Tamahori, are to be believed, then the former President of Iraq had enough body doubles to cover his tracks from Baghdad to Alaska. For all you know, Hussein may be a resident in your own neighbourhood, as innocuous as your uncle, with a cigar in his mouth.
The Devil's Double, however, is not about Saddam Hussein (Philip Quast) - at least not entirely. It is about the psychotic heir to Hussein's zillions, his son Uday (Dominic Cooper), and the latter's fiday (body double), Latif Yahia (Dominic Cooper).
