    In recent news, Arnold says he's actually considering starring in his first non cameo role, since becoming governor of California.  here's the link for those wanting the full story: … -handle-it

    What i would like to ask you is what do you think about this?  should he even still be making movies while his own state needs him to run it?  Or am I just acting crazy here for bringing this up?

      He should be doing geriatric medication commercials soon.

      Maybe if he uses the money from the film to help California?? Not likely, but maybe wishful thinking.

    California doesn't need his help to run anything.  I don't see why Arnold can't go back to Hollywood.  It would probably be different roles, he is much older now.

    He already told that he'll be back, what else do you expect?

    He is no longer the governor of California, having turned that (thankless) job over to Jerry Brown this month.
    I wouldn't mind seeing him run for federal office -- Congress or Senate. Although he legitimately is not qualified to run for POTUS (not a native-born American -- unlike OBAMA, who IS), he is eligible to run for those offices.
    But he's probably had more than enough politics.
    Sure, why shouldn't he go back to the movies?
    He can still act!

      Really?  Arnold is no longer governor of that state anymore? I didn't know that. i guess i need to follow politics more than.  I thought he still was, and opened this forum because i think it's ridiculous he would make movies while he's supposed to be running California that looks to be going into debt.  However, I hope Arnold stays out of politics though to be honest, as i think he did a terrible job as governor anyway.

          you mean other than the fact that he failed to keep his state out of bankruptcy?

            I think our whole world is more or less in crisis... what a governor can do?

    Like you can't blame the POTUS for everything bad in the country or credit him with everything good, the governor of CA has a very similar -- and impossible -- job.
    I actually voted for Arnold and hoped he really would be able to bring some business sense to our state.
    He grossly underestimated the partisanship in the Capitol, however.
    You think the US Congress and Senate are bad? Our State Senate and Assembly make their US counterparts look like BFFs. Seriously.

    Arnold's "my way or the highway" approach didn't over well.
    He tried very hard to get state expenses under control (but of course ran into massive resistance).
    Add to that the collapse of the construction industry coupled with the national/global economy tanking.

    Yes, we are in a frigging world of hurt here.
    I've seen the question raised "Is California Ungovernable?"

    I still do like Arnold and Maria and wish them well.
    Hollywood no doubt has a place for Arnold. What are we up to, Terminator XXXVIII or something? lol
