Ben Chaplin (JOHN)

Ben Chaplin returns to his native England to play John Buckingham, a straight-laced bank clerk who has been so unlucky in love he resorts to ordering a Russian bride off the internet – and winds up in the middle of a bank-robbing free-for-all.

Chaplin’s first international starring role came in Michael Lehmann’s romantic comedy “The Truth About Cats and Dogs” in which he co-starred with Uma Thurman and Janeane Garofalo. More recently, Chaplin has received critical acclaim for his performance as Private Jack Bell in Terence Malick’s World War II drama “The Thin Red Line” alongside Sean Penn, Woody Harrelson, Nick Nolte and George Clooney.

Other film credits include Janusz Kaminski’s “Lost Souls” opposite Winona Ryder, Agnieszka Holland’s “Washington Square” with Jennifer Jason Leigh and Maggie Smith, Chris Menaul’s “Feast of July” and James Ivory’s “The Remains of the Day” starring Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson. He will soon be seen in Barbet Schroeder’s “Fool Proof” with Sandra Bullock and in the Hong Kong action film “The Touch.”

Theatre credits include John Burgess’ “The Neighbour” at the Royal National Theatre, James McDonald’s “Peaches” at the Royal Court Theatre and Sam Mendes’ “The Glass Menagerie” at the Donmar Warehouse for which Chaplin was nominated for an Olivier Award.
