What If Matt Smith Appeared on 'Sherlock'? Benedict Cumberbatch Would Like that Very Much
First off, if you’ve been watching Sherlock over the UK, or you’re cheating in the United States and watching it ahead of time, please refrain from spoiling everything for those of us who have not yet seen the first two episodes. Second, here’s some good news: Stephen Moffat, along with writer Mark Gattis, have mapped out all of season four and five (this doesn’t necessarily mean there will be a season four and five, but there will probably be a season four and five, and according to Moffat, season four and five contains the “best ideas” they’ve ever had).
Benedict Cumberbatch has also totally not completely ruled out the possibility that Matt Smith might, could, maybe one day if the role were right and the schedules aligned and if there’s no apocalypse and no one turns into a werewolf on the set then maybe quite possibly Matt Smith could be in an episode of Sherlock. Maybe.
“I love working with Matt. He’s a phenomenal actor. I’d jump at the chance to work with him again. I don’t know how likely that is to be on the set of Sherlock. If there was a perfect part for him, there’s no rule against it. We wouldn’t want it to be stunt casting, because stunt casting doesn’t work, so it would have to be just because he was overwhelmingly right for it.”
You hear that? He’d jump at the chance to work with him again. F**k it, it’s confirmed. MATT SMITH WILL BE ON SHERLOCK. Tell all your friends.
