Matt Smith has been cast in an upcoming musical adaptation of the 1991 Bret Easton Ellis novel ‘American Psycho’.
The actor, who filmed his final scene as the Eleventh Doctor earlier this week, will take on the role of “serial killer Patrick Bateman” in the production. It will run at London’s Almeida Theatre from 3rd December to 25th January 2014.
It will be directed by Rupert Goold who described the Doctor Who star as “a wonderful stage performer”.
Matt commented: “The opportunity to work with Rupert Goold – director of great vision and flair – combined with a brilliant story and music, seemed like an exciting challenge.”
We would like to wish Matt the best of luck! He will bow out of Doctor Who at Christmas.
