The Mail states that Smith will play Patrick Bateman in the musical adaptation of American Psycho.

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.

Lovely!

A source told them: “It’s a damn difficult role to pull off and Smith has charm and the acting chops to do it. It’s bold casting and brave for Smith to take it on.”

The show starts previewing at London’s Almeida Theatre on December 3.
