Actor Matt Smith is set to star in the musical adaptation of American Psycho.

The Doctor Who star will take on the role of psychotic investment banker Patrick Bateman, played by Christian Bale in the 2000 film, in London’s West End in December (13).

This isn't Smith's first time on the London stage - he has starred in several shows, including The History Boys, Fresh Kills and Swimming With Sharks.

Peter Capaldi will replace Smith as Doctor Who when he ends his run as the Tv time lord later this year (13).
