Schwarzenegger finds a bad guy for his next film

09.07.2011

While the internet is mostly abuzz about Arnold Schwarzenegger's other just announced project, he still has the action-drama THE LAST STAND on his schedule and that project has found itself a bad guy to enter the annals of classic Schwarzenegger bad guys. Peter Stormare will play the head of an eight-man enforcer team sent to dispatch Arnold and crew from a small town (Arnie is the sheriff and doesn't plan to take any of their guff).

Stormare is no stranger to playing bad, strange dudes so we don't expect the role will be much of a stretch but he'll be in good company alongside actors like Richard Tyson, James Earl Jones, Charles Dance, Michael Ironside and, sure, Richard Dawson.

It looks like Schwarzenegger will start work on EXPENDABLES 2 first in October and then segue to THE LAST STAND later this year (both are Lionsgate films so they're happy to accommodate both films on the actor's schedule). Then, of course, comes the possibility of another TERMINATOR film somewhere further down the line.

And while we're talking about it, who's your favorite Schwarznegger villain?

Among all the supporting actor roles he has done, if I had to pick one, it would be the German Nihilist in Big Lebowski

Also, he was probably the best thing about "Constantine", as Lucifer.

Stormare is one of those great character actors who's a welcome addition to any film. For the extra tidbit: my favorite Arnold villian is Sinbad.

Just kidding, its Robert Patrick.

Fucking awesome news. I love Stormare. His characters are often fucked up/twisted and he excels at playing evil guys (Dino Velvet).

Finally...

Glad to see Arnie back. Greatest villain for him??? The little kid from Kindergarden Cop who said he probably has a tumor. "It's NOT a tumor!"

Fantastic news.

I was afraid they would cast some rapper. Glad to see they're going for actual actors.

LULZ, you guys are so cute. You all seem to forget Arnie's greatest villain was actually the tag team of Kyle Reese and Sarah Connor.

I've got three that are about equal. Michael Ironside as Richter, The Predator and T-100

As for the movie, I'm really happy Arnold picked this as his next solo project, mostly because it will be directed by the great Jee Woon Kim

Predator hands down is the ultimate Arnie villian. Byrne in End of Days would be my 2nd. I wonder if Arnie still has the chops to pull of an action movie. With his history of heart surgeries and such, I doubt he would jump on the Stallone get huge as a horse at 70 kick. Although I wouldn't mind watching him kick Jason Statham's ass in Expendables 2.

Bennett

is the best bad guy ever (in an Arnie film). Closely followed by Richter & Cohaagen.

Final confrontation between Peter and Arnie...

Peter: "We still want the money Arnie or we fucks you up!"
Arnie: "I'm a cop you idiot!"
Epic is the word!

I'll probably lose creativity points but Robert Patrick hands down.

Favorite Arnold Schwarzennegger bad guy? Why Robert Patrick of course! Cliff Curtis in Collateral Damage and Tony Goldwyn in The 6th Day and Gabriel Byrne in End of Days and James Caan in Eraser are awesome too though.
