Ben Walker

He knows a thing or two about blood and death.

Benjamin Walker knows a thing or two about blood and death. He made his Broadway debut in the musical Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson -- and nobody could stop talking about his tight pants. He followed that up by starring as a kick-ass Honest Abe in director Timur Bekmambetov's Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Now Walker gets to take on the role of creepy-yet-sexy Patrick Bateman in the musical adaptation of American Psycho, which originally premiered in London, starring Matt Smith.

American Psycho -- with music and lyrics by Tony Award-winner Duncan Sheik -- has a book by gay writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Spiderman: Turn off the Dark, Glee), and is based on the novel by Bret Easton Ellis. Rupert Goold will direct and choreography is by Lynne Page (La Cage Aux Folles, A Little Night Music). "I've been a huge fan of Ben's work on stage and screen and am really looking forward to working with him on American Psycho," Rupert Goold said in a statement. "He is an enormous talent and I think audiences will be utterly seduced by his dangerous charisma and extraordinary stage presence. He'll make a killer Patrick Bateman."

The show will make its Broadway will begin previews Feb. 19, 2016, and have an official opening night on Monday, March 21, 2016 at a Shubert Theatre to be announced.
