Remember when we started talking about an AMERICAN PSYCHO musical back in 2008? For better or worse, this thing is actually happening, and they've cast their Patrick Bateman.

Who will be the next to run around naked with a chainsaw? Well none other than the 11th Doctor himself, Matt Smith! (Nakedness not guaranteed.)

Bet you didn't expect that.

There's no comment yet from Smith on the role but it will certainly give fans a new light in which to look at their beloved Doctor. Almeida Theatre Artistic Director, Rupert Goold will direct the play from Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa's adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis' original novel with music from Duncan Sheik. The first run of the show will launch this December in London's West End.

This is not Smith's first time on the stage. He's had roles in THE HISTORY OF BOYS, FRESH KILLS, and SWIMMING WITH SHARKS. Don't forget that Smith was recently filming Ryan Gosling's directorial debut, HOW TO CATCH A MONSTER which we should see sometime next year.

Extra Tidbit: Remember Duncan Sheik? He gone on to write music for A HOME AT THE END OF THE WORLD and the musical, SPRING AWAKENING. That guy is more than just a one-hit wonder.

Can't wait to see How To Catch A Monster. Dieing to see what Gosling has up his sleeve in terms of directing his first feature film.

The fact that an American Psycho *musical* exists at all is bloody brilliant.

I think it's "The History Boys" and not "The History *of* Boys" though.
