Rumour: Matt Smith Called In For Star Wars Episode VII

The Doctor Interrupts Your Evening’s Programming (Plus Bonus BBC America Trailer For Day Of The Doctor)Right now this is just gossip but it comes from a fairly well-placed source. We’re hearing that Matt Smith went in for a role in Star Wars Episode VII. We don’t know if that means he had an audition, a screen test or just a chat with JJ Abrams or George Lucas, but it’s another case of fandoms colliding.

We’re still expecting Benedict Cumberbatch to be in the running for a role in the film, smashing Star Trek into Star Wars. Matt Smith would add Doctor Who to the mix. He’d be the first person to ever wield a lightsaber and a sonic screwdriver.

If these keeps up, we might have a real competitor for Starter For Ten‘s super geek crossover status.
