With an extra 20 pounds, an impressive paunch and bad teeth, actor Jude Law, best known for his golden boy roles, transforms himself into a sleazy, ranting southeast London safecracker in the film "Dom Hemingway".In the film, which opens in select U.S. theaters on Wednesday, Law plays Dom Hemingway, a damaged, hot-headed crook released from prison after a 12-year stint for not ratting on his crime boss.The role enabled Law, 41, to mine the southeast London streets of his childhood for the character and to discard any lingering remnants of his matinee idol image.American screenwriter and director Richard Shepard ("The Matador") was a big fan of British gangster movies such as "Sexy Beast" and "Mona Lisa," and always wanted to make a film in the British capital.Richard E. Grant ("Withnail and I") plays Hemingway's loyal friend Dickie, a part Shepard wrote for him.
