How Matt Was Cast By Ryan Gosling

Matt Smith has revealed how an iPhone helped him to land a part in Drive star Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut, How to Catch a Monster.

Matt Smith as the Doctor in The Power of Three

The Eleventh Doctor will be joining the likes of Mad Men’s Christina Hendricks, Atonement’s Saoirse Ronan and 2 Fast 2 Furious star, Eve Mendes in a fantasy noir about a single mum in search of her missing child.

He told Total Film:

“I was in New York and I was about to fly back, and then I got a phone call saying Ryan wanted to meet me and come over. So I read his film and I thought it was brilliant.


And then I auditioned and we spent about four hours together doing some stuff, and he filmed it on his iPhone. And that was it. And now I’m going off to shoot it in a couple of weeks.


I’m really excited. I think he’s really clever, and I think it’s going to be an exciting project.”

He also added that he had begun doing intensive research for the part but was more concerned with getting the acting for both this and Doctor Who right.

Other than a small part that was cut from 2007’s In Bruges and a starring role in low-budget indie flick, Womb (or Clone in the UK), How to Catch a Monster is Matt’s biggest break-through into the movies and his first attempt to act with an American accent.

He added that How To Catch A Monster, which is expected to be released in 2014, “has a wonderful Lynch-ian quality to it.”

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
