Matt Smith and the anniversary special

Nice little interview here

Interesting to note that he's denying he's playingt the lead in How to Catch a Monster as well. Perhaps his role is not as big as expected, in fact maybe it won't require him taking as much time off from Who as expected?

I saw a story a few minutes ago about Ryan Gosling. It seems he's decided to take a break from making films, for an undetermined amount of time. As I recall, the movie Matt Smith was going to be in was going to be directed by Gosling. If Gosling is serious, that means there is no movie for Smith, at least not any time soon.

Re: Matt Smith and the anniversary special

Well it seems he's taking a break from acting, whether he's extending it to directing isn't certain

That's not what he said. He said a break from acting and will concentrate on directing instead.

Oh, I had no idea Matt Smith was intended to be the lead in a Ryan Gosling Directed movie. I thought he was merely a "guest Star" in a movie Ryan Gosling was acting in, so, I was confused by everyone thinking it was going to take up so much of Matt Smith's time

Re: Matt Smith and the anniversary special

But that's the point, he isn't the lead in the film apparently, so we don't know how big (or not) his role is.

No problem, "Intended" was a poor choice of words my part, I see now. I would have been more clear, if I had used the word "believed"

He's almost certainly playing the main bad guy (so a lead role but not THE lead role).

And according to JLC he'll be gone for four months shooting it.

Re: Matt Smith and the anniversary special

The Sun reports today that Matt is gone at Christmas.

They could be right. Or they could be taking quotes from here and there and painting a picture that fits the quotes but isn't accurate at all.

Personally, I'd rather see Moffat go than Smith. I would love to see how another producer would handle Smith's Doctor. But I know, deep down, that that possibility has never been in the cards.

Here's the thing. Moffat has confirmed he's back for S8 as has JLC but Smith has consistently refused to confirm anything past Christmas.

And the BBC's response to the story is pretty laughable.

“Sorry folks but even we don’t know what’s going to happen at Christmas. It’s not been written yet!”

There is no way on earth that they don't know now if the Christmas Special is going to finish with a Regeneration or not.

A sun report so acurate it says Matt's already filmed How to Catch a Monster!

I was just about to say that

Their track record isn't that bad, though, so... 50/50 chance

Re: Matt Smith and the anniversary special

Regardless of how this particular story pans out, is there anyone who thinks that he's not focused on making a full-time Hollywood career for himself in the reasonably short-term future?
