Matt Smith Joins STAR WARS EPISODE IX in Key Role

Star Wars Episode IX is still filling out its cast, as production is underway in the UK. Its latest addition is someone with plenty of geek cred.

Matt Smith, aka the Eleventh Doctor from Doctor Who, has joined the cast of Episode IX in what’s said to be a “key” role. And, unsurprisingly, that’s all we know about his character. It’s unclear if he will be a good guy or a villain. We’ll just have to wait and see.

In addition to Doctor Who, Smith was in 2015’s Terminator Genisys, while he is currently nominated for an Emmy for his supporting role on Netflix’s The Crown.

Stay tuned for more news as we have it. Star Wars Episode IX hits theaters on December 20th, 2019.
