Writer Richard Curtis revealed that Scottish actor Tony Curran has been cast as Vincent van Gogh in an upcoming episode of Matt Smith's first season of Doctor Who. The episode is set to air next February in the UK.
Curtis told Bullz-Eye: "We've got a brilliant guy playing Vincent van Gogh - which is who it's about - who you should look up on YouTube. He's a guy called Tony Curran, who really could not look more like [him].
"He's a wonderful actor who was in this brilliant movie called Red Road that came out, a rather serious movie. But he's going to be great. I’ve had a lot of fun. We start to shoot in about a month." [Digital Spy]
