Terminator Salvation director hires an Austrian bodybuilder to take Arnold's spot

We knew Arnold Schwarzenegger wasn t going to be in Terminator Salvation, but what we didn t know is that he d be replaced. Rather than simply using a Terminator different from the one he portrayed in all three previous Terminator movies, it looks like McG has hired someone new to play the T-800.

The story comes from a smallish paper called The Clinton News Record, where they spoke with a bodybuilder named Roland Kickinger& the new T-800. Oddly enough, not only is Kickinger a body builder like Arnie, he s also Austrian. In fact, Kickinger called Arnold a mentor, and claims they trained together for awhile. He even played Schwarzenegger in a A&E Network biopic called See Arnold Run. He s one step away from being a full-blown Arnie impersonator.

And he really is replacing Arnold. From what he says, he s not playing some other T-800 model, but the same one Arnold played, maybe even the same one that goes back in time in the first Terminator movie. Kickinger says, 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.

It s kind of a bummer to have anyone but Arnold playing the T-800. Couldn t they have just made it the T-799 or something? Still, I suppose this was inevitable. Might as well suck it up and live with it.

I dont like that idea heh.

Of course you don't, you have a brain.

McG however, does not, atleast not a fully functioning one. I can't even put into words how ******** of an idea this is. You're going to hire an Arnie imposter to be the Terminator.

Just another reason why I think this movie will suck.

I think Roland will be fine. As for the T-800 killing Connor, I'm not sure it would happen in this movie, or if it would happen at all. Time travel has a helluva way of messing up what is supposed to happen. Usually something worse happens instead. I'm going with the Terminator raping John Connor, and the film ending with Bale crying in a shower.

In T3, the T800 makes reference to him (Arnold) killing Conner later in his life.  In T2, they make a big deal to say that the future isn't set.  So who the ##### knows...
