    John answers viewers questions about Matt Smith's casting In Star Wars Episode IX.
    Nick Todd writes, Hi John. Just wondering if you had a chance to see that Variety is saying Matt Smith has joined the cast of Star Wars Episode 9. They said they don’t know who he’s playing at the moment so I was curious what you thought about Prince Philip/Doctor Who joining the galaxy?

    The role he played was THE DOCTOR. NOT Doctor Who.
    Sorry bout that.

    I imagine Rey, Finn or some other guy asking him who he is. And automatically respones: Hello I'm the Doctor!
    That'll be a cool outtake.

    A new member of the first order General Shouter: he’ll follow in the footsteps of the antagonists that Disney has made where instead of being threatening they just shout all their lines like a bunch of children

    Can’t believe you dissing Monaghan for his non-talent acting skill in comparison to Smith.

    Everything i've seen Matt Smith in he's been annoying. Not a fan.

      Alrico98 I agree. Glad we kept it respectful!

      I couldn't disagree with you more but I mean we both watch John Campea and as he would say "tv and film are subjective". Ultimately if that's how you feel fair enough. I will say, It's no coincidence he's the only doctor to have been nominated for a BAFTA for his performances in Who, and recently got an Emmy nomination in The Crown. But end of the day it's your opinion.

      Alrico98 He wasn't very good in Doctor Who I thought. I liked him at first but the writing went downhill and he was annoying.

      Same here . I was annoyed by how good he was in the crown and doctor who.

    What about if he plays a young Luke Skywalker in flashback scenes?

      He looks and sounds nothing like Luke. Oh dear, some people come up with the strangest ideas.

    The movie will now be unwatchable.Don’t get me wrong, he is an amazing actor but I will only be able to focus on his T H I C C chin whenever he’s on-screen.

      Matt Smith played the 11th Doctor. The tenth doctor was played by David Tennant. But yeah I love him as the doctor as well!!

    I think it would be cool if Matt Smith played a Skywalker, possibly a son of Luke that escaped the masacre of Lukes Jedi academy

      But he's known for his unique alien-like face, here's no way he'll be a human.

    I doubt Dominic Monaghan will be just a cameo otherwise why bother announcing it.

    • clockstomper

      If he's a human character. He's got a great voice, the accent would make for a good alien or robot voice.
