Well, here’s Isabella Kapur writing about something Wil wrote about on Tumblr a couple-three days ago, so maybe he does:

It’s been less than a week since Matt Smith officially announced his departure from Doctor Who and the speculation is already in full force. But while websites place odds on various actors and actresses, from Zawe Ashton to Russell Tovey, the identity of the actor truly chosen appears to have made it’s way to Wil Wheaton. On top of that, we may find out who it is ourselves earlier than expected.
It appears that Wil Wheaton may have heard the news from a Doctor Who related source, writing on his tumblr yesterday:
“Am I the only person who knows who has been cast as the next Doctor, and who has known this was coming for several weeks? I figured that if it filtered down to me, it must be common knowledge among people who matter.
…now I feel kind of special. Yay me.”
Wheaton does have Doctor Who friends, (Barrowman!) and this was in direct response to the news circulating that Chiwetel Ejiofor has 7/1 odds of being the favorite for the role of the 12th Doctor
