Matt Smith, best known as the 11th Doctor in Doctor Who, has apparently read for a role in Episode VII.
According to Bleeding Cool, a “fairly well-placed source” claims that Smith “went in for a role in Star Wars Episode VII“. The wording is vague and the source gives no more than that at this point. However, there’s a sense that further reports are still to come, with Jedi News hopefully supplying more details soon.
So if this all works out, get set for a Star Wars/Star Trek/Doctor Who extravaganza in 2015. Just for the hell of it, they should also cast Bruce Boxleitner, Claudia Black and Tahmoh Penikett so we get Tron, Babylon 5, Farscape, Stargate, Riddick, Battlestar Galactica and Dollhouse covered.
