Smith will play a role not originally featured in the original Terminator film, although a Paramount press release hints he'll play someone close to John Connor who will be played by Jason Clarke. The casting pairs Smith with another fan favorite star, Emilia Clarke of Game of Thrones fame, as well as the Governator Arnold Schwarzenegger.

What do you think of Smith's casting? Could the former charismatic Doctor be bound for a large scale villainous role? Let us know in the comments section below.
