Matt Smith in Ryan Gosling Directed Film

At the moment Matt Smith is the Eleventh Doctor in Doctor Who. It is a big year for everything Doctor Who but it sounds like it is going to be a big year for Smith as well as he lands his first major US role in trippy film How to Catch a Monster.

Smith will play alongside Christina Hendricks and Eva Mendes in a film that Variety describes as:

Story is set against the surreal dreamscape of a vanishing city and centered on a single mother of two being swept into a macabre and dark fantasy underworld while her teenage son discovers a secret road leading to an underwater town.

This is a big step for Smith who is committed to playing The Doctor until at least the end of this year. There is still no sign of Smith finishing up as The Doctor with him in talks with head-writer Steven Moffatt about Season 8 that is set for 2014. But if more and more roles like this start to come in for Smith, we might have to prepare ourselves for a regeneration. A fantastic piece of news for Smith and I am sure it will be a role that he will excel in.
