It was just confirmed that A-hnuld will in fact be a part of McG’s upcoming Terminator Salvation. How does a busy Governor find time away from his job (tha he’s doing oh so good a job at) to reprise his stint?
He didn’t have to leave his office!
Using the magic of digital effects, they made a body cast of the man and will be digitally inserting it onto an actual actor playing him in the movie.
I don’t know how well this is going to turn out, but I do feel sorry for Roland Kickinger, who’s currently playing ‘playing’ the T-800. I mean, you get a big shot in a ginormous summer blockbuster, and then you find out you’ll be digitally casted over by a perfect pixelated Governator? Ouch. And Kickinger played a damned convincing Schwarzenegger in that made for TV docu-drama.
Oh well, thems the breaks.
Plus, it’s nice to know that Schwarzenegger hasn’t gone so political that he can’t allow himself to make an appearance (sort of) in a beat-em-up drag-em-out summer action orgy.
