Kickinger Replaces Arnie As T-800

Former bodybuilder Roland Kickinger will play the T-800 in Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Terminator Salvation” reports The Clinton News-Record.

Kickinger begins filming this month and talked about his role (SPOILERS AHEAD):

“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.”

The film opens on May 22nd 2009.
