That new Terminator trilogy just cast a former Doctor Who star in a major role

Things are about to get even more timey-wimey as former Time Lord Matt Smith joins the cast of the new upcoming Terminator trilogy.

Deadline reports that Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions are “setting the final major piece of the final trilogy of Terminator films.” They also report that former Doctor Who star Matt Smith has been cast in what's called a major role that will become even more important in the second and third flicks.

Smith joins Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, Jason Clarke as John Connor, Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese and, of course, the Terminator himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Seriously, can there be a smoother move than to cast a former time traveler in a time-traveling sci-fi flick, we ask you? Are you guys excited about Matt Smith joining the Terminator cast?

Directed by Alan Taylor, Terminator: Genesis will hit theaters on July 1, 2015.
