Of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s five children, two have followed in his acting footsteps: Patrick Schwarzenegger and Joseph Baena. Regarding the latter, you might recall that five years back, Baena recreated one of his father’s most memorable scenes from 1991’s Terminator 2 – Judgement Day. Baena, now on the set for his new movie is channeling Arnold Schwarzenegger’s younger self, but in a completely different way.
Joseph Baena is currently working on Bitflix’s Lava, the world’s first fully crypto-funded movie. However, no information has been provided about Lava’s premise or who Baena is playing, the actor shared a picture of himself on InstagramHe looks as if his father pulled him from the past into the present while filming in Honolulu. You can see the difference!
Keep this in mind The Terminator’s eponymous antagonist arrived in 1984 from the future sans clothes and immediately ready to start hunting down Sarah Connor? Other than Joseph Baena wearing shorts in this picture, that’s the same kind of vibe I’m getting here. Or, if you prefer, you could imagine that Baena is trying to emulate his father’s version of Conan the Barbarian, albeit with shorter hair. In any case, the guy is ripped, and it’ll be interesting to learn what exactly what he’s doing in Lava.
LavaJospeh Baena is a prolific entrepreneur. Scam Squad, Chariot, Meet and GreetAnd Bully High. He also shared a picture of him in May riding a horse while shirtless. It served as a good argument for why he should appear in a Western. Baena Schwarzenegger is still an actor and Patrick Schwarzenegger is building his filmography. I wonder if one day Baena will be able to act with his father or half brother. Going a step further, could we one day see him take on one of his father’s roles in an official remake/reboot? We’ll see. I can see him as a Terminator-style model.
Speaking of killer robots, Arnold Schwarzenegger last played a T-800 in 2019’s Terminator: Dark FateThese are his future projects. Kung Fury 2, Triplets (which will see him and Danny DeVito working with Tracy Morgan) and a yet-to-be-titled TV series that’s described as a “global spy adventure.”Schwarzenegger also wrote a touching tribute for Joseph Baena on his 24th birthday last month, which Baena shared with his siblings.
