“Doctor Who’s” Matt Smith is sticking to his sci-fi roots, joining The Governator for TERMINATOR: GENESIS. The project will be the first of a trilogy of rebooted films and will also star Emilia Clarke as Sara Connor, Jason Clarke as John Connor and Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese. Obviously, Arnold Schwarzenegger will be playing the title role of the Terminator. Smith’s role is being kept under wraps but he will play a new character who has strong ties to John Connor.
Smith is best known as the clumsy, bow tie wearing Eleventh Doctor in the popular BBC series “Doctor Who.” Having just passed the reins to the next doctor, Peter Capaldi, Smith has spent the interim playing soulless antihero Patrick Bateman in the stage version of “American Psycho.” His next project is Ryan Gosling’s thriller “Lost River,” where Smith stars opposite Christina Hendricks and Saoirse Ronan.
What are the chances we’ll see him don another bow tie? Maybe a fez?
