The popular Doctor Who star, who just left the legendary British show last year, has been cast in the upcoming Terminator reboot, Paramount announced recently. He will play a new character with a strong connection to John Connor, and joins a cast that includes Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Clarke, Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, J.K.
