Wanna know why Arnold Schwarzenegger left politics? It’s all about the math. As The Governator – the real one, not the ridiculous cartoon version – he left the state with a deficit of around $25 billion dollars. However, to play a horse breeder in the upcoming film Cry Macho, Schwarzenegger will earn $12.5 million dollars. Preside over billions lost or collect a check for multi-millions? After thinking about it for awhile, I know I would also respectably choose the latter.
In Cry Macho, Schwarzenegger plays a Kentucky Derby-winning horse breeder whose life turns to figurative horse shit. The only way he can keep his job is to kidnap the boss’ son from his ex-wife’s mansion in Mexico. Yeah, I think we’ve all been there, am I right? I guess we’ll have to see if this movie gallops to the front on the box office, so Schwarzenegger gets to keep his old job of starring in movies. (Deadline)
