Doctor Who: Matt Smith Cast In American Psycho Musical

Just days after Matt Smith filmed his final Doctor Who moments in the Christmas Special, Smith has already been cast in a new project.

Smith has been cast as main character Patrick Bateman, (who was played by ex-Batman Christian Bale in the 2000 movie adaptation), in a musical adaptation of American Psycho. The Daily Mail states:
“Smith begins rehearsals today for a musical version of Brett Easton Ellis’s controversial novel American Psycho about Patrick Bateman, a fictional 1980s Wall Street investment banker who engages in twisted, sick, sadistic, misogynistic fantasies involving rape, mutilation, torture and cannibalism.”
It's quite the move away from the Doctor, that's for sure...

American Psycho: The Musical begins previews in the Almeida Theatre in London on Tuesday 3rd December.
