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.
Chaplins first international starring role came in Michael Lehmanns 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 Malicks World War II drama The Thin Red Line alongside Sean Penn, Woody Harrelson, Nick Nolte and George Clooney.
Other film credits include Janusz Kaminskis Lost Souls opposite Winona Ryder, Agnieszka Hollands Washington Square with Jennifer Jason Leigh and Maggie Smith, Chris Menauls Feast of July and James Ivorys The Remains of the Day starring Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson. He will soon be seen in Barbet Schroeders 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 McDonalds 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.
