Hugh Grant shows his dark side in multiple Cloud Atlas roles


Hugh Grant said last night it was "fun" to bring out a darker side for his multiple roles in the screen adaptation of Cloud Atlas, rather than the bumbling English gent he normally plays.

The Four Weddings And A Funeral star plays six roles in the film version of David Mitchell's hit novel. Tom Hanks, Jim Broadbent and Halle Berry also play a series of different characters. Speaking at a gala screening in central London, Grant said: "It was fun. I got stuck in a rut of playing relatively nice guys. These are killers and rapists and I felt I had to do it." pa
