What does one think of this?

Since it would be a new character it is hard to say anything.

It's supposed to be a reboot, so one assumes his character would be something akin the the Michael Biehn role. The problem is that I just don't see him a rough, tough action hero - well that and the fact that Arnie is just too old now.

agree with your comment on Arnie (it does not make sense to me that the machines would built robots that looks like 60 year olds)

But honestly for a split second I thought Matt Smith would playing the terminator and thought that would be an interesting take on it (The machine building a robot that looks so none-threatening).

As for him being an Action star, I can see him beside John telling him to run, as they run away from a terminator :) . But seriously without more info it is hard to say what he does in the movie. In the original most of the plot is in present day so any future part might be minimal (them sending Kyle back to save Sarah).

This is why making a robot that looks 60 is the perfect disguise! Frankly, who would build an undercover agent that looked like 30-year-old Arnie? That's like SCREAMING "Look over here! I'm going to kick your ass!"

Now, a Betty White 2000 is a far more devious choice...

Can't quite visualise the crowds queuing to see it though.

If you are not expecting an "undercover agent", and you are in constant battle for your life in a crumbling world with limited resources would you rather have a 30-year-old Arnie that can help you in the war or a frail person that would just be syphoning your precious resources and slowing you down on your team? T-800/Model 101 was the first "undercover agent" so no one should be expecting the machine to use that tactic to infiltrate the bases, and once it finds a base everyone should die so no one should be able to say "hey watch out for that strong guy".

That is why to me the idea of a 30-year-old Arnie was not as bad as you imply. But that does not work as well for a 65+Arnie

Why exactly would a robot who looked 60 have to act 60? The moment he bends a gun in half, throws a car through a wall, or stands in place and bends a big rig around him... I don't think you'll be thinking he's some frail guy who's going to slow you down. But to everyone else, you're harmless and blend in.

Of course, a hot chick suits that purpose too, but Arnie looks rather homely in drag.

As I recall that was the rather less than good Terminator 3.

You missed my point. Obviously he was a strongly built robot (in the film), but obviously if the resistance knew that they would not take him back to base unless he was incapacitated so all the stuff you said was worthless. You have to start with the assumption that other robots are coming after you and you want to escape from them (or possibly you see him scurrying around foraging) and so you think he will be a good addition to the team.

n that scenario a strong young guy might be accepted more easily because he can carry more every time you move base....

John Conner was never the toughest fighter, he was more the brains of the operation.
