Unlike some of his co-doctor who alumnae, actor Matt Smith isn’t too bothered about falling under the franchise’s shadow for the rest of his career, which is all well and good because he’s just been cast in a new film franchise that also deals with timey-wimey stuff, though not in the same lighthearted way Doctor Who does.
According to Deadline.com, Matt Smith will be playing a role in the upcoming Terminator: Genesis. While the role has not been revealed yet, it is said to be a “major” one. Smith will star opposite Game Of Thrones star Emilia Clarke, who’ll play Sarah Connor, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes star Jason Clarke, as John Connor, and A Good Day To Die Hard’s Jai Courtney, as Kyle Reese. It is said that Arnold Schwarzenegger will also reprise the role that made him a household name a couple of decades ago.
