I personally know no fewer than 5 American women that think Matt Smith is the cutest thing since....ever. Granted they are all DW fans but most of them started with the show under his tenure and went back to watch the others. The American DW fandom of geeks loves him, but then again geeks like us are very loyal. I could see things working out for Matt Smith here if he landed a sitcom. He'd have to get used to theAmerican production schedule though, which would take some getting used to compared to the British one. All he needs to break out is one solid show, and in Nathan Fillion-esque fashion he'll start to have career wiggle room.
