When you say Arnold Schwarzenegger, chances are your brain jumps to his famous Terminator catchphrase “I’ll be back”. But Arnie has an idea for a new phrase: “I’m old, but I’m not obsolete”. Catchy, huh?
It comes as the actor admits to Graham Norton on tonight’s show that he never thought “I’ll be back” would be the line everybody remembered.
“You never know which line will get picked up,” he explained.
He’s hoping the “I’m not obsolete” line will be the most repeated from the latest instalment, Terminator Genisys. It’s appropriate because he thought his time on the franchise was up.
“I was excited about the new film, but I thought they might switch me for someone new, like they do in the James Bond films,” he said. “So I was happily surprised to be offered the role. It was fun to get back into shape and into the character. It was like riding a bike and I got straight back into it.” He does love a bike. Boris bikes specifically.
