    So, the next Terminator might not suck after all. At least, might not suck too much.

    Thoughts? Is he too good for this or is this a perfect break for Mr Smith? And will he be playing another geeky scientist or could he be turning his hand to villainy this time?

    It'll really depend if he throws himself into his Hollywood work with more enthusiasm than Eccleston does. With the later you can always tell he's doing it for the money, which isn't a bad thing in and of itself but you should at least put the effort in for the cash. His dead behind the eyes performance in Thor 2 was the weakest thing in that film (you could tell he neither knew what he was saying when sprouting lots of made up words in Elvish nor cared) and his Scotch accent in G.I. Joe was the sign of a man who did not in any way shape or form give a fuck.

    I know it would be ridiculous, but does anyone else kinda wish, that he actually plays the Doctor in this? XD

    ^That would actually be the coolest thing ever, ridiculous or not.

    I'd probably have my hugest fangasm ever if that happened.

    They're forgetting one other important character: Skynet. Perhaps Matt Smith will play a combination of scientist and scientist's creation (Skynet modeling its personality and face on its creator). That would be a neat twist.

    I was wondering if he's going to be Kyle Reece?

    ^ Nope, Jai Courtney, from A Good Day to Die Hard, plays Reece.

    He's no Michael Biehn, that's for sure. I actually thought Anton Yelchin made a good Reece in Terminator Salvation; he even nailed Biehn's 'through-the-teeth' delivery.

    Yeah Yelchin was one of the few things I actually liked about Salvation.
