Having already proved that she’s such a good mom to those dragons on Game of Thrones, Emilia Clarke has been cast as the mother of the rebellion, Sarah Connor, in the upcoming Terminator: Genesis. Unsurprisingly, Clarke won the role over Brie Larson, who doesn’t really have any onscreen experience kicking anybody’s ass or looking good while covered with soot and grime. She may have also had an inside track with former GoT director Alan Taylor at the helm.
It’s expected that her son, John Connor, will be played by similarly-named Jason Clarke while Arnold Schwarzenegger will also be returning to the franchise that made him famous by playing to his strengths of stilted line delivery and shooting at things. (Deadline)
