According to a report from Variety, Matt Smith has been cast in the newest Star Wars movie in a key role.
While Smith is most recently known his Emmy-nominated role in Netflix’s The Crown as Prince Phillip, but is likely best known for being the eleventh Dr. Who from the years of 2010 – 2014. He also played the Doctor in the related video games and Lego Worlds’ Dr. Who set.
Variety was not able to say whether Smith would be one of the good guys or one of the bad, but British accents can end up on either side. We’ll have to wait until December 2019 to find out for sure when Star Wars: Episode IX releases in theaters.
