    Here's Your First Look At Matt Smith In The "American Psycho" Musical

    The Doctor Who star is turning serial killer on the London stage.

    1. Matt Smith makes his debut in the musical version of American Psycho in London this week.

    2. And the yuppie serial killer could not be a more different first role since leaving Doctor Who.

    3. The musical, adapted from the Bret Easton Ellis novel, opens at the Almeida Theatre on Friday 13 December.

    4. It's an especially brave move for Matt, who has never sung or danced before.

    5. Easton Ellis himself approves of the casting.

    6. It looks like there is a lot of impressive dancing.

    7. The music and lyrics were written by Duncan Sheik, the man behind Spring Awakening, with the book by Roberto Aguirre-Sacase.

    8. In American Psycho Bateman is a hedonistic investment banker by day and a serial killer by night.

    9. But events in the book are left ambiguous, so it is never certain whether any of the crimes actually happened, or are the fantasies of a delusional psychotic.

    10. After this, Smith will next be seen in the movie How To Catch A Monster, directed by Ryan Gosling.

    11. The production runs at London's Ameida Theatre until January 25.
