Matt Smith has admitted that he would like a role in J. J. Abrams’ projects, Star Trek and Star Wars.
Matt Smith describes himself as now just like any other actor looking for work, he told IGN at this year’s Comic-Con International that he would be keen on a role in Star Trek: “Yeah, I would JJ,” before whispering behind his hand, “or Star Wars. So just putting it out there.”
With the end of his stint as the Doctor racing towards the end with the Christmas special, Smith said he is looking for work again: “I go back to auditioning and trying to get a job. Someone employ me.”
But while Smith fancies a role in JJ’s Star Trek, he admits Benedict Cumberbatch is doing a great job: “Ben’s kind of done the English villain now hasn’t he? And he was great in it.”
He added: “I love Star Trek and I love JJ Abrams. What that man can do with a steady cam is amazing.”
Smith also revealed he knows a bit about this year’s Doctor Who Christmas special.
"It’s not over for me yet, I’ve still got the Christmas special. Apparently it’s like 20 pages in, Steven [Moffat] was telling me about it last night – it sounds exciting," he revealed.
Could he say anymore? No. “If I told you I’d have to kill you,” Smith joked.
