Christian Bale assays a rare pop culture two-fer as he signs on for the role of grown up John Connor in the planned TERMINATOR relaunch:
Bale will play Connor, now in his 30s, in the fourth installment of the “Terminator” franchise, to be set in the future. McG is directing the project, skedded for an April start in Budapest.
Bale has been rumored to be involved in the project for weeks, but there had been conflicting reports about his role.
What other such two time heroes are there? The original Schwazenator was both the Terminator and Conan, of course. Harrison Ford was Han AND Indy. Wallace Shawn was Wallace Shawn AND Vizzini. We’re spacing here…there must be lots more. Knock yourself out.
