Matt Smith Joins Episode IX

Here’s another later addition to Episode IX that should make Doctor Who fans happy. Variety is reporting that Matt Smith has been added to the cast. Smith is probably best known for playing the 11th version of Doctor Who. He also gained acclaim on the Netflix series The Crown.

I’m not a Doctor Who fan, but I expect this guy to be fairly talented and I’m sure he could be capable of playing either a hero or a villain. The only thing mentioned about Smith’s role is that it is “key”. Like I’ve said before, the villains are a bit shorthanded going into Episode IX so I wouldn’t be shocked if there are a few new bad guys in the new movie. He looks like the type suited to be a First Order officer.

Are you familiar with Matt Smith? Is he a good addition to Episode IX?
