Arnold 2.0 Joins Terminator Salvation

roland kickinger Arnold 2.0 Joins Terminator SalvationJust 24 hours after the teaser trailer for Terminator: Salvation is released, now comes word that (finally) puts to rest the question everyone’s been asking:

“So…what about Arnold?”

Well, true believers, the T-800 will in fact appear. Albeit this time he will be portrayed by actor Rolan Kickinger.

Speaking recently to the Clinton News-Record, he explained:

“There’s a very strong scene in the film where John Connor for the first time meets the Terminator, and he doesn’t know if he’s a good guy or a bad guy,” said Kickinger.

“It’s Arnold’s character in the first Terminator. That’s basically my role, but 20 years before, so it establishes how the Terminator [came] about.”

I’m sure Kickinger is a nice guy and all. But, I wouldn’t want to be the guy who spends his acting career essentially being told “You know…you look just like Arnold Schwarzenegger!”

I mean first he plays the Governator in an A&E-produced biopic called See Arnold Run (for all 10 of you who saw it) and now this!?!

Then again, work is work. And he’s playing to his strength. So all power to him.

Terminator: Salvation will be released in theatres May 22, 2009.

  1. Could it be that I’m first? Probably not. After T3, I didn’t hold out much hope for this franchise. Cameron bailed at the right time. Temporal causality loops have come 360.

    WIth Bale as Conner and Arnold 2.0, who know? I always thought they would introduce us to the human the T800 was based on – maybe that’s still part of the plan..

  2. Oh Lord… we’re not going to start that “First!” comment business here, are we? :-)


  3. hahahahaha. Arnie sub??? hahaha

    sorry this is just a riot.

    yeah, let’s avoid the ‘first’ BS

  4. coolios, I wonder if they special-effect it up to look more like the governator.

  5. I’m gonna keep laughing with Panda on this one

    You have the power to stop it, Vic. Use that power to its ultimate end. Destroy all firsters! (At least their posts, anyway.)

    Back on topic … I think this movie could be really cool if done right. Have to wait and see, I suppose.

  7. XD, pretty good.
    Looking forward the ANY of Christian Bale films… his on a “hit” role.

  8. This is the most incouraging news yet, from this film.
    I mentioned this guy about 4 months ago on Screen Rant as being the perfect choice to play the Model 101. He is…
    Anyone that’s ever watched “Son of the Beach” knows this guy is a “perfect clone” of Arnold.

    Whatever way they use him they can’t loose. The guys perfect. ;-)

    And Mcg if your reading Screen Rant, don’t kill the Connor!!

  9. I’ll BE BACK……..
