ARNOLD MUS­CLES INTO MOVIES!

Globe - - CELEBRITY NEWS -

AUS­TRIAN body­build­ing champ ARNOLD SCH­WARZENEG­GER used his brawn to mus­cle his way to fame with a break­through per­for­mance in the 1982 swor­dand-sor­cery epic Co­nan the Bar­bar­ian. Though the novice ac­tor had to study for weeks with a coach to im­prove his heav­ily ac­cented speech, his ef­forts paid off. The hit kicked off a string of block­busters for the on-screen ac­tion hero, in­clud­ing his sig­na­ture role in The Ter­mi­na­tor. Arnold put act­ing on the back burner while serv­ing as Cal­i­for­nia’s gov­er­nor from 2003 to 2011. But since the 71-year-old star’s re­turn to Hol­ly­wood, he’s re­port­edly slated for an un­ti­tled Ter­mi­na­tor re­boot and The Leg­end of Co­nan, a se­quel to the film that launched his ca­reer.
