Look who’s ready to hop aboard the Hollywood choppah again. Arnold Schwarzenegger tweeted that he’s ready to give movies another shot, after many blah years of governating. Can you imagine super-manly Schwarzenegger of the 80s using something called a “tweet?” Unless a “tweet” was an ironic name for some kind of crazy machine gun.
The times have changed, I guess, and here’s his tweet to Tinseltown:
“Exciting news,” he wrote [on Twitter]. “My friends at CAA have been asking me for 7 years when they can take offers seriously. Gave them the green light today.”
It’s not lik Conan the Barbarian ever truly left acting behind. He’s had cameo roles in a few films during his governatorship, including Around the World in 80 Days and The Expendables. Now it looks like he’ll be vying for starring roles again, but can he arm wrestle away these parts from current action stars like Matt Damon? If they actually arm wrestled for parts: a) that’d be totally awesome, and b) I guarantee you’d be seeing a lot more Arnold. (Hollywood Reporter)
