"I was intrigued by his absolute devotion and belief in medicine," Jude told us recently at the press day for the movie in Los Angeles. "He's someone who has worked very hard to get where he is, and to get as successful and effective as he is. It's almost like a religion to him. He has a great faith in medicine being the answer.
