Doctor Who's Matt Smith joins the cast of Alan Taylor's Terminator: Genesis

05.02.2014

It hasn't been long since details have hit the (Sky)net on how TERMINATOR: GENESIS might tie into the first film.  Now, a nice bit of casting news has followed: Matt Smith, who's no stranger to Sci-Fi, will take up a role in TERMINATOR: GENESIS. No word on the details of his role yet, but it's rumored to grow in the second and third films in this newly rebooted/re-magined/reloaded Terminator trilogy.

While it's too early too tell if Alan Taylor will deliver where Jonathan Mostow and McG couldn't, I'm rather excited that they're shaking up the formula and really taking advantage of the time travel angle. If there's anyone who knows all about that, the Doctor is a good place to start.

TERMINATOR: GENESIS, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke, Jai Courtney, Day Okeniyi, and Byung Hun Lee is set to hit theaters July 1, 2015, almost 18 years after the initial judgment day.

Cybermen?

If this is an alternate reality for Terminator, cast Billie Piper in it and call it a day.

I didn't like him at first, but he grew on me.

It was more of a fault of the writer not knowing what to do. Matt Smith is a fine actor, but his turn as The Doctor was kind of boring. Oh lets kill off the same few people... It was just boring. I do miss David Tennant though. He was my first :p

The Angry Doctor was a great addition to the series

and I hope he does well here. He deserves higher profile roles.

He really grew on me as the Doctor. Yes, he was the youngest actor to wield the Sonic Screwdriver, but it really felt like he had an old soul. I do hope he takes on roles in bigger movies; I'm similarly glad that Karen Gillan will be in Guardians of the Galaxy.

Still feeling cautious but this piece of casting is interesting. I'd even be interested in seeing him play a new terminator. One of the many things I enjoyed about Judgement Day was seeing skinny Robert Patrick throw Arnie around.

That would be awesome if he was a terminator. No one in the movie would think of him as being a badass.
