Paul Bettany Nears Deal to Replace Matt Smith on 'The Crown'

Paul Bettany is in talks to play Prince Philip on the upcoming third season of The Crown, taking the role over from Matt Smith, according to THR.

Olivia Colman is set to play Queen Elizabeth II, replacing Claire Foy who played the role for the first two seasons.

The cast is being replaced for the upcoming third and fourth seasons, which will follow the royal family at a later time in life.

Netflix has not yet confirmed the upcoming seasons, though it’s pretty much a no brainer at this point!
