Schwarzenegger to Appear in Terminator Sequel, Kind Of

California's actor-turned-governator, Arnold Schwarzenegger, is considering a cameo in the upcoming Terminator sequel, Terminator Salvation. But there's a catch: According to blogger Bill Bradley, Schwarzenegger told the film's director he would only be in the flick if he didn't have to perform.

What may seem like an impossible request was taken seriously by Warner Brothers, and the studio is exploring whether it can insert images of Schwarzenegger from his other Terminator flicks into the new film. "I said that I would be willing to be in the movie if they get the technology together, so they are working on that right now," California's understandably busy governor said.

Terminator Salvation, which has been in the works for several years, is finally all set for a May 21 release. Christian Bale will occupy the lead role of John Connor, who, in post-apocalyptic 2018, leads the human resistance against Skynet and the Terminators. Schwarzenegger would enter the movie in a brief scene during which Connor encounters him as a "future Terminator."

Scheduling conflicts have slowed the development of several films lately. Chace Crawford is trying desperately to straddle Gossip Girl and Footloose, and may even drag a lawyer into the mix to help him do both. Meanwhile, Evan Rachel Wood and Emma Stone have dropped out of Zach Synder's Sucker Punch. It seems to be a well-packed year for starlets and governors alike.
