He’s no stranger to space.
Star Wars: Episode IX has cast Matt Smith in an unknown role. Of course, the internet has already decided that Smith is definitely on team evil. He constantly saved the universe as the Doctor though! I think it is a little unfair to already push him to the dark side. I mean, hello, look at Domhnall Gleeson! Pretty sure no one thought he was going to be a general for the Empire. So don’t be too quick to assume, internet. Although I will admit Smith’s last few roles might have skewed towards the bad guy…
Smith joins Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Mark Hamill, Billy Dee Williams, Oscar Isaac, and Adam Driver as well as newcomers Keri Russell, Richard E. Grant, Dominic Monaghan, and Naomi Ackie.
J.J. Abrams will direct this movie after Colin Trevorrow exited over creative differences. Kathleen Kennedy is producing the film.
