Arnold Schwarzenegger Returns to the Big Screen


Arnold Schwarzenegger makes a cameo in forthcoming movie, The Expendables.

The Governor of California is seen in the trailer for the action adventure movie—which tells the tale of a group of ageing mercenaries including Bruce Willis, Sylvester Stallone and Mickey Rourke—uttering a line about Rambo star Stallone.

In a scene where the group are plotting a coup, Schwarzenegger is seen stating: “Give this job to my friend here, he loves playing in the jungle,” before turning around and walking off, the Los Angeles Times reports.

The Austrian-born politician has not appeared in a movie since 2004’s Around the World in 80 Days, but has a strong back catalog of work including Eraser, the Terminator movies and True Lies, as well as farcical comedies Jingle All the Way and Kindergarten Cop.

Schwarzenegger first came to fame when he was awarded the title of Mr. Universe at the age of 22, before going on to win Mr. Olympia seven times.

The Expendables is set for an August release.
