Schwarzenegger Back Up for Grabs for Movie Roles
The 38th governor of the state of California is back in the movie industry.
“Exciting news,” Arnold Schwarzenegger wrote on his Twitter account. “My friends at CAA have been asking me for 7 years when they can take offers seriously. Gave them the green light today.”
CAA stands for Creative Artists Agency, which is his talent firm.
Schwarzenegger ended his two terms as governor last January 3. The days leading to it were full of speculations as to what would be his next move. Will he be running for national posts or return to the big screen. Seems the latter is the current choice.
Since serving in the public office in 2003, the former Mr. Olympia, only had four cameo appearances in films, the last one being in The Expendables. He has an uncredited voice participation in the film Cars and his likeness was super-imposed (uncredited) to another actor in Terminator Salvation.
As to the roles he would be accepting, he previously told in an interview that if he ever goes back into acting, he would have to get ones that will adapt to his age. Extreme fighting or shooting is not a possibility anymore.
