7. James Cameron Told ‘Terminator Genisys’ Producers How To Fit In Arnold Schwarzenegger (via /Film)
Cameron told Deadline
"I wasn’t interested in producing it or working on it actively, but I did want to put in a good word for Arnold. I pointed out that the outer covering (of the Terminator) was actually not synthetic, that it was organic and therefore could age. You could theoretically have a Terminator that was sent back in time, missed his target, and ended up just kind of living on in society. Because he is a learning computer and has a brain as a central processor he could actually become more human as he went along without getting discovered."

  1. What would I do with a Worf figure though?
    Sadly not even having Arnold in the films will tempt me back to the Terminator franchise. They lost me with the last one.

  2. I might be able to sometimes watch Dr Who on AMC.

  3. Superman III will remain another movie I love that other people hate, alas...

  4. I'm rather looking forward to The Martian--great book, and should make a really cool movie. Well, I hope at least!

  5. I've never read the book, but I like the concept Meradeth!

  6. I'm assuming they're going to play reruns, do it should be a good time to catch up.

  7. They lost me with the last two Alex.

  8. I can't take that 10 worst superhero supporting characters list seriously when they immediately invalidate themselves by including Richard Pryor's fantastically hilarious performance.
