So far, the casting choices for the new Terminator reboot have been spot on. Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, Jason Clarke as John Connor, and Arnold as an elderly version of the Terminator robot. The only missing piece was who would play Kyle Reese? News broke today that the role will be filled by some guy.
It has been decided that Jai Courtney, who last played some guy in A Good Day To Die-Hard, has won the part after it was determined he had done the requisite amount of sit-ups needed. Kyle Reese is the resistance member who travels back in time by John Connor to protect his mother in the original Terminator. While doing so, he also impregnates her which creates a time paradox being argued about in dorm rooms to this very day. It’s expected that the new film will also lean heavily on the concept of time travel so get ready to keep your voices down while angrily debating your idiot roommate about string theory. (Variety)
