Because Arnold Schwarzenegger is busy running our home state of California, the role of the T-800 Terminator in the new film Terminator: Salvation will be played by another Austrian body-builder who actually trained under the Govenator. Roland Kickinger is also a former Mr. Universe (another trait he shares with Ah-nold), and even played the man himself in the A&E made-for-tv bio-pic See Arnold Run that aired back in 2005.
“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 about his role in the new Terminator film. “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.” Plus, Kickinger is almost more of a badass name than Schwarzenegger. Way to go.
