Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Son Perfectly Recreates Iconic ‘Terminator 2’ Scene
Terminator 2: Judgment Day featured an iconic scene that is etched in cinematic history. The sequence in the 1991 science-fiction classic is known as the “Bad to the Bone” scene because the notorious song of the same name by George Thorogood & The Destroyers is played as Arnold Schwarzenegger’s T-800 character steals a motorcycle and sunglasses.
This year marks the 25th anniversary of James Cameron’s masterpiece. To celebrate, director Ben Hess recreated the scene in a splendidly done fan-made video. While they couldn’t get Arnold, they got the next best thing, his son. Joseph Baena plays the Terminator robot sent back to save the world. The 18-year-old nails the part, despite having no dialogue.
Joseph is a natural at being a robot. I’m not sure if that is a compliment for an aspiring actor.
It’s good to know that there is someone to play T-800 in Terminator 14.
