Two Hands (1999) Director Gregor Jordan, interviewed by Paul Harris for 3RRR FM's Film Buffs Forecast, talks about casting the role of Jimmy in the film and how he came across Heath Ledger.

The cover image for this radio piece shows Heath Ledger as Jimmy and Rose Byrne as Alex in Two Hands. Photographer Stuart Spence created this portrait around the filming of Jimmy and Alex’s first date: 'Working on set everyday, watching their characters interact made it so much easier having Heath and Rose replay their parts offset, on my little location studio sets … You do have to be in the moment and keep still to get the nuance of characters as they evolve in front of you.'
