Sci-fi geek overload imminent! Deadline report that our previous Doctor Who, Matt Smith, has joined Paramount's new Terminator flick. They don't say who he'll play, but apparently it'll be a "major role" that'll be expanded upon in future films.

The Doctor VS. Terminator? According to Deadline, Paramount and Alan Taylor have chosen their "final major" cast member for Terminator: Genesis, and it's none other than our last Doctor (as in, Doctor Who), Matt Smith. Unfortunately no details are provided as to which character he'll play, but the site reckons it'll be "a major role that will grow in the second and third films." Smith joins Emilia Clarke (Sara Connor), Jason Clarke (John Connor), Jai Courtney (Kyle Reese), Day Okeniyi (Danny Dyson), and Arnold Schwarzenegger, who will reprise the role of the titular cyborg. The Terminator will be back in theaters on July 1, 2015.

MRSID-yeah smith was the most chidlike of the dcotors, everything made him curious but he could get dark and merciless too,also he had the best speeches of all the doctors imo!!

MrSotoMan - 5/2/2014, 8:43 AM
This movie is trying desperately.

Old school cast member.
Three young attractive leads
An actor that can play dead on serious roles from OZ
2 bodybuilders who cant act.
Cast aan actor who has huge respect for the nerd community.

Lmao. Wow. This movie is going to be terrible.
Niklander - 5/2/2014, 8:44 AM
Damn that cast is shaping up well.I mean come on it's the Doctor
Starscream22 - 5/2/2014, 8:44 AM
Meh, I'm kind of tired of Terminator anyway... so if they're looking to breath new life into this franchise it would have to be a unanimous 8.5 or better in order for me to buy a ticket.
ezio619 - 5/2/2014, 8:45 AM
i would love to see matt smith in a marvel movie,he imo is too young for dr strange ,i still david tennant is the perfect age and actor for dr strange, matt smith..hmmm

My knickers are in a knot

Not sold on Jai Courtney.

He resembles Sam Worthington way too much to be playing Kyle F*&%-ing Reese! It seems like a generic gripe, but the last movie bombed and it had Worthington as that character he was in that "McG directed Terminater movie that bombed". Marcus I believe was the character's name.

Mrcool210 - 5/2/2014, 9:04 AM
This movie may now be on the top of my list for most anticipated movie 2015, the fact that he will be in the sequels as well makes me so happy.
Alfredo27 - 5/2/2014, 9:04 AM
I hate bitches who wine and say this movie will be terrible. Great you are under 25 we dont care and you have horrible taste and bad decision making.

caroldanvers - 5/2/2014, 9:47 AM
ah... this still sounds not interesting at all
even with thr doctor on board, sigh
dammit matt I wanted you on marvel idc as who but ugh
SuperDude001 - 5/2/2014, 11:58 AM
His Doctor was poorly written, but frankly he's an amazing actor and out of anyone I've seen can do epic speeches the best. Can't wait to see him in Gosling's 'Lost River'. Frankly deserves better things though. This may not be terrible but they should've continued with the whole war timeline. He'd be great for a Marvel film (don't know what role though - I would propose Deadpool cause the Doctor showed he could nail childish humor and creepy mental but fans may kill me).

batman001 @ I would prefer him as John Connor, but frankly Connor's been cast. Even says it in this article.
SuperDude001 - 5/2/2014, 12:03 PM
If it's a major role that grows into other films, I'm guessing he's...actually I'm not sure. If they continue with some of the future war, I'd say maybe the leader of humans that takes over from Connor? Connor's partner? The main machine-villain?
MrSotoMan - 5/2/2014, 12:19 PM
Don't worry, we won't know. It'll be rebooted by another studio who doesn't know shit.

This will be like watching Indy 4 again all over.
Mercwitham0uth - 5/2/2014, 12:39 PM
They should have left the Terminator alone after the second film. T3 was garbage and Salvation was just "meh".
mgeoff88 - 5/2/2014, 2:07 PM
Wow, Matt Smith in T5? That is quite unexpected.

The only actor I'm not liking among this cast is Jai Courtney.
dracula - 5/2/2014, 3:19 PM
i was not sure about this movie but with matt smith I am watching it even if the movie sucks matt smith was my first and favorit doctor I remember when I first set my eyes on doctor who in 2010 I was watching star trek the next generation it ended I never saw doctor who before and thought it was a medical show so I changed it then a few minutes later I pressed the return button on acident and I saw something I will never forget I saw a strange man over stone henge with romans aeound him and space ships above him as he told them to let somebody else try first and at that moment I was hooked and I wanted to know more about this so I looked up the doctor and learned of the doctors and there enemys and I new this was something special and now I own all modern doctor who seasons on my labtop and I am waiting for the fist 4 seasons to be on blu ray before I start getting the blu rays
dracula - 5/2/2014, 3:22 PM
matt should play mysterio in a spiderman movie
