Thatís right, J.J. Abrams has cast British actor Matt Smith in an unknown role for his upcoming Star Wars - Episode IX. Smith, who is coming off his awarding winning part in the hit series The Crown, was of course cast as the Eleventh Doctor in the very popular Doctor Who series.
Smith took over the part from the popular David Tennant as the Doctor in 2009 and would assume the role until 2013, when he was eventually replaced by Peter Capaldi.
We of course have no idea what role Smith will be taking on in Episode IX and it comes on the heels of another big casting announcement as the other day we learned fellow Brit Dominic Monaghan was cast in an unknown role. They both join fellow newcomers Richard E. Grant, Keri Russell and Naomi Ackie and trilogy mainstays Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, John Boyega and Adam Driver.
Iím sure weíll learn more about Smithís role in the coming months as things are progressing quickly across the pond.
