Following the casting news of Lost star Dominic Monaghan, now it’s reported Doctor Who actor Matt Smith has been cast in Star Wars: Episode IX.
While it is unknown if he will be joining the side of the rebels or the evil empire, it is reported Matt Smith has a key role in Star Wars: Episode IX.
In addition to Doctor Who, Matt Smith is known for Netflix’s The Crown series, which saw him receive an Emmy nomination for playing Prince Philip, and Smith also had a role in the recent Terminator Genisys.
I don’t suppose there is a chance that Smith uses the Tardis and goes back in time to fix The Last Jedi? Sorry, couldn’t resist that one.
