Schwarzenegger to Appear in TERMINATOR SALVATION (Sort Of)

It turns out that Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger will appear in the new Terminator flick. Kinda. Sorta. Here’s Variety on the subject:

A body-cast mold of Schwarzenegger, created when he first appeared as the muscle-ripped cyborg, provided the basis for a digital-effects version of his famous character. The figure appears in Terminator Salvation as a living, breathing actor.

I, for one, am very happy to hear this. While I look forward to seeing Christian Bale take the series in a new direction, I hate when film reboots don’t acknowledge the tradition from whence they came.

How about you? Does this news make you feel any more or less excited for Terminator Salvation?
