'Doctor Who' Meets Ryan Gosling in Someone's Fantasy (and Real Life)

Ryan Gosling might just be a closet Whovian, people, because for his directorial debut "How to Catch a Monster," Gosling's now plucked none other than The Doctor himself, Matt Smith.

Per Variety, "Monster" will mark Smith's stateside acting debut, and he will star as the male lead for the film.

Outside of "Dr. Who," Smith has very few film credits to his name - British titles like "Womb" and "Bert & Dickie," e.g. - so the decision to cast him probably had a little something to do with his popular (and zany) work in TV.

Kenneth Branagh is an international star of stage and screen who's as adept at performing Mamet or Stoppard on stage as he is at directing a summer blockbuster like "Thor." In "My Week with Marilyn," Branagh takes on the role of Sir Laurence Olivier, the legendary thespian who directed and starred in "The Prince and the Showgirl" with Marilyn Monroe. It's this production that's at the heart of "Marilyn," as the actress, played by Michelle Williams, struggles with the staid British set, the pressures of working with Olivier and her ongoing personal drama.

So, what's the Shakespeare-trained actor like in person? Branagh's as charming as one would hope, easily chatting about playing the legendary Olivier, the trials and tribulations of directing, and his lifelong love of "Dr. Who." Get More »
