Given the real crossover between Doctor Who fans and Star Wars fans, there's bound to be some excitement over his casting. Per Variety, Doctor Who alum and The Crown star Matt Smith has signed on to join Star Wars: Episode IX in an unknown but "key" role (cue "HE'S PLAYING REY'S FATHER" rumors). Production is now underway.
No details of Smith's purported role were reported. But, considering the franchise's track record with casting pale British dudes, it's likely that he'll be playing a member of the villainous First Order, which is now led by Adam Driver's Kylo Ren and Domhnall Gleeson's General Hux. Or - with Daisy Ridley throwing off the series' accent association - could he actually join the Resistance? In the meantime: what do you think of Matt Smith joining the cast? The actor had his breakout role in the long-running British sci-fi show Doctor Who, in which he played the eleventh incarnation of the titular Time Lord for three seasons.

Smith was recently nominated for a drama supporting actor Primetime Emmy for his portrayal of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh on The Crown. Billy Dee Williams is reprising his role as Lando Calrissian, and Carrie Fisher will be featured as Leia Organa in the final installment of the Skywalker saga, using previously unreleased footage shot for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens". Soon, the British star will be seen playing Charles Manson in Charlie Says, as work gets underway on Star Wars: Episode IX overseas.

She returned to the tennis court just six months later, and was back in Grand Slam shape by the time the French Open began in May. So yeah, I am sure we'd come to an understanding, and everything will be OK, and yeah, so it would not be a big deal.
But when it comes to who is the best to work for, the staff of Buckingham Palace all seem to agree on one person: Prince Philip . They also featured actor Ben Daniels as Princess Margaret's husband, Anthony Armstrong-Jones, writing, "Hurt".
