According to Ryan Gosling, he cast Matt Smith in his directorial debut, Lost River, after watching the later scream at Aliens on an episode of 'Doctor Who'.
"One day I was watching TV. I heard Matt Smith's voice coming at me. It was Doctor Who and there was an episode where he was in a car screaming at these aliens and telling them where to go. Like a boss. Just telling all these spaceships what was what.
"As an actor I know that's pretty hard to do, because I'm pretty sure those spaceships weren't there. I thought, 'Who is this guy?'" Gosling said.
"There's no-one like him. He's like one of those actors from the Seventies, just themselves and nobody else. I said, 'I have to work with that guy.' So I tracked him down." - He added.
Matt who plays the villain in 'Lost River' says he would work with Gosling again "at the drop of a hat".
'Lost River' which stars Christina Hendricks, Saoirse Ronan, Matt Smith and Eva Mendes, revolves around a single mother, her teenage son and a secret underwater town.
