Matt Smith Is Leaving ‘Doctor Who’?


Doctor Who star Matt Smith has been bitten by the Hollywood bug. In an interview with VH1, the English television star — who previously gained popularity on the series Party Animals — hinted that his days as the time-traveler are almost over. “I’ve got another year of Doctor Who, but then I’m certainly going to come and give it a shot, come and hang out in LA,” he told VH1.

That means there may be a twelfth actor stepping in to wear the fez soon. Of course, fans could be misreading what Smith stated (and he’s hinted at this kind of exit before) — but depending on scheduling for the new season, the actor may find himself enjoying a longer holiday where it’s possible he’d head to Tinseltown for a spell. Will we see Smith stay in part until Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary in 2013, or do you sense a goodbye approaching? [via Hero Chan]
