Now, keep your salt shakers ready! But according to a rumor which was first reported by the Weekly Planet Podcast on YouTube (and subsequently picked up by several websites) an inside source told them that Matt Smith will play none other than a young Sheev Palpatine in Episode IX. Now what could that be? Flashback? A Clone? Or maybe just yet another baseless rumor? At least the source is not Mike Zeroh 😉
What do you think? Would you like to see Palpatine in Episode IX? Should he teach Kylo Ren a thing or two about being the Evil Lord of the galaxy?
Former Doctor Who star Matt Smith has joined the cast of Episode IX. Nothing is known about his role yet, but Matt Smith is joining an ever expanding cast list. Dominic Monaghan (Lost, Lord of the Rings) was also announced as yet another cast member. It seems Episode IX might have a quite expansive cast list, of course both Smith and Monaghan could only be seen in smaller roles. We’ll learn more about that eventually.
What are your thoughts? Are you excited for Matt Smith and Dominic Monbaghan to join the Star Wars franchise? Smith, after his time with Doctor Who, also starred in the ill fated Terminator Genisys with Emilia Clarke, so he’s not new to Hollywood SciFi blockbusters.
