Doctor Who's Matt Smith Joins Cast of Terminator: Genesis Nerd boner. It’s something that happens to us geeks, male or female, when awesomely geeky things happen, like two awesomely geeky worlds colliding. And I expect you’re experiencing one right now with the announcement that…

Dr. Who himself, Matt Smith, has landed a role in the upcoming fifth installment of the Terminator franchise.

From the Press Release
Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions announced today that “Doctor Who” star Matt Smith will join the cast of the upcoming TERMINATOR reboot.

Smith will play a new character with a strong connection to John Connor alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Clarke, Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, J.K. Simmons, Dayo Okeniyi, and Byung Hun Lee.

Alan Taylor is directing the film from a screenplay by Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier. David Ellison and Dana Goldberg of Skydance Productions are producing. Skydance’s Paul Schwake, Annapurna Pictures’ Megan Ellison, Kalogridis, and Lussier are executive producing.

Smith is best known for playing The Doctor on the popular “Doctor Who” television series during the 2011-2103 seasons. His other television credits include “Christopher and His Kind,” “Moses Jones,” and “The Street.” He can be seen next on the big screen in LOST RIVER, directed by Ryan Gosling, alongside Christina Hendricks, Saoirse Ronan, and Eva Mendes.

The “TERMINATOR” franchise launched in 1984 with Schwarzenegger as the title character and spanned three subsequent films, which have earned more than $1 billion at the worldwide box office.

Paramount will distribute the film worldwide on July 1, 2015.
