Benjamin Walker has landed the lead role in the upcoming production of the musical American Psycho, which is based on the cult favorite film of the same name.
The 32-year-old actor will take on the role of Patrick Bateman, played by Christian Bale in the movie and Doctor Who‘s Matt Smith in the recent London production of the musical, according to Deadline.
The show will begin performances at the off-Broadway theater Second Stage in New York City in February 2015 and the hope is that it will transfer to Broadway.
The music for the show was written by Duncan Sheik, who previously wrote the Tony Award-winning score for Spring Awakening.
Benjamin most recently starred in the Hollywood Bowl’s production of Hair in which he stripped down and showed off his nearly naked body!
