Could Josh Brolin be the next Arnold?

So you know Terminator 4 is under works right? And you know that the new John Connor is going to be Christian Bale (woohoo!) right? Well, in a recent interview with the director of the movie, McG (yeah, that is actually his name), he was quoted on who his choice might be for the lead role of the Terminator.

McG: You know, those are big shoes to fill. If you go back and look at the first picture it’s so funny because there’s such a decided difference between what Arnold was doing in the first picture and in the second and third picture. I mean there’s this decided physicality – look what Robert Patrick did to get ready for the role. He’s a guy who I adore, I put him in every movie I’ve ever done. And it’s very difficult to say because it’s a decidedly masculine role and I think we’re living in a time where a lot of actors are very effeminate and they’re sort of skinny, heroine chic and there’s really a masculine component to the role. And there’s guys out there like Russell Crowe and Eric Bana, bring a good physicality, they do what they do, but I don’t know if they’re exactly right at the end of the day. (Smiles) Josh Brolin is a very exciting actor – we’ll see.

I loved Brolin in No Country for Old Men (if you haven’t seen it, may I suggest you do?) and I wouldn’t mind one bit seeing him in here either. Cross our fingers.
