Most of you will know him by his stage name Plan B but when it comes to acting he prefers to be known by his real name Ben Drew. It was recently revealed that Ben was set to make his feature film directorial debut later this year but before then, Ben will appear alongside Ray Winstone in the remake of The Sweeney.
Drew explained, "We finished that just before Christmas. It was really good fun. I never really saw myself as an actor. I know I can act, but I'd never described myself as an actor. If something came up that I thought I'd enjoy doing, I'd do it, but I never saw myself... there's certain roles I never saw myself doing. And after doing The Sweeney, I thought, 'Maybe I am capable of doing that'."
The Sweeney is based on the 1970’s UK television series and, as well as starring Ben Drew and Ray Winstone, it will also feature Damian Lewis and Hayley Atwell. The Sweeney has been directed by Nick Love and is currently in post production, with a UK release date expected to be on September 21, 2012.
