Fans across this galaxy and one far far away are absolutely ecstatic that Doctor Who lead Matt Smith has reportedly been cast in “a key role” in Star Wars Episode IX.
We don’t yet know whether Smith will play villain or hero, Jedi or Grand Admiral, but fans like writer Neil Gaiman have tweeted that they can’t wait to see him materialise in the next Star Wars instalment.
Great news. Matt Smith is a terrific actor and a hard worker. https://t.co/e35bfXJeyn

But who will Smith play? Fans already have some amazing ideas…
I don't know who he's playing in STAR WARS, but Matt Smith SCREAMS "snivelling Imperial Officer" and I hope that he's basically like Hux's subordinate on whom Hux takes out all his Kylo Ren aggression
