With one perfect rendering of a truly psychotic dentist behind him - yes, in 'the days when he was funny' - Steve Martin is to don his scrubs once more. But Martin's role in the forthcoming Novocaine is a far cry from the sadomasochistic drill bearer in Little Shop Of Horrors, as the funnyman plays it straight as an unassuming dentist who unwitting becomes involved in a sting.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that **Helena Bonham Carter **- lest you forget, Empire Award-winning British Actress of 1999 - is to co-star as the patient who seduces the naive Martin, persuading him to prescribe unnecessary drugs.
