Josh Brolin MAY Be The New Terminator
Strange as it sounds, Josh Brolin could take up where Arnold left off as a new Terminator when the fourth movie hits theaters.
In a recent interview, director McG (We Are Marshall, Charlie's Angels) was asked who his "dream Terminator" would be, and he mentioned Russell Crowe and Eric Bana, but grinned and said "Josh Brolin is a very exciting actor - so we'll see."
Granted, this confirms nothing (as indicated in the giant MAY in the title of this article), but at least we know that John Connor is being played by Christian Bale. There were rumors of John Connor's involvement in the film being little more than a cameo, but McG quashed those, saying that Connor "plays a major role." Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins is set for a Summer 2009 release date.
I think they've pretty much got me with Christian Bale as John Connor (perfect casting, says I), so they could have almost anyone play a Terminator and I'd still go see it. My personal suggestions? Daniel Baldwin, Jessica Biel, Brummitt, and Joel McHale. In that order.
