    FAMOUS ACTORS CHECKLIST – The Films of ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER

    Useless Trivia
    Birth Name - Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger
    A.K.A. – Arnie, Austrian Oak, Conan the Republican, Styrian Oak, The Governator

    Childhood friends stated that he often said his goals in life were to move to America, become an actor, and marry a Kennedy. He accomplished all three.

    His father, Gustav Schwarzenegger, nicknamed him "Cinderella" as a child and his older brother, Meinherd, constantly picked on him growing up. Both men were killed while driving under the influence.

    Has the record for winning the most major bodybuilding events in history, 13 (1 Mr. Junior Western Europe, 7 Mr. Olympias, and 5 Mr. Universes).

    Was considered for the title role in the 1970s TV series "The Incredible Hulk" (1978), but was reportedly deemed not tall enough. His former bodybuilding competitor, Lou Ferrigno, ultimately won the part.

    James Cameron orginally wanted him for the role of Kyle Reese in The Terminator (1984), but when Arnold walked into the restaurant to meet Cameron about the role, Cameron took one look at him and said "You're a machine!" and that's why he got the role of The Terminator.

    Performed many of his own stunts in his films, owing largely to the fact that it was hard to find stunt doubles who matched his size.

    Was considered for the role of the gentle giant Fezzik in the 1970s when William Goldman's book "The Princess Bride" was being discussed for a film adaptation.

    Also turned down the role of John McClane in Die Hard (1988) & was considered for the role of Flash Gordon in the 1980 film.

    Rank ‘em, rate ‘em, review ‘em or whatever.
