Ah-nuld Is Looking Bad-Ass In TEN!!

The Kidd here...

Looks like some double Schwarzenegger action coming your way today with the former Governator giving us a first look, courtesy of his Twitter, at his new look on the set of David Ayer's TEN.

Ayers had told me about the reinvention of Arnold for the film back when we talked about END OF WATCH, but... well, I guess it's hard to believe it until you see it. Schwarzenegger is sure set to play one bad-looking dude for this one.

    Neck tattoos

    by wintocha67

    isn't that kind of a more youthful, urban look? I can't imagine a grizzled old soldier bothering to keep up with the latest tattoo trends.

  • Oct. 25, 2012, 8:51 p.m. CST

    He looks like my fucking grandpa!

    by Blarg Barfington

    Dude's fucking lost it man. I'm worried how he will do as Conan.

    hhahahaha the hair makes me pee my pants

    by Redhead_Redemption

    seriously, how can a man be taken seriously when he was pee wee herman's hair do?

  • Still don't like the guy, but he's got incredible discipline for physical fitness when he's not tied to a desk.

  • Hope this is as dirty as Ayer can get. Arnold deserves to Terminate. To be morally ambiguous.

  • Oct. 25, 2012, 9:01 p.m. CST

    give me the ten.

    still looks badass...

    by Norman Colson

    I gotta admit. not too happy bout the hair.

  • Oct. 25, 2012, 9:08 p.m. CST

    His hair is fine, ya fucks

    by fuzzy_dunlop

    Looks like old school military-type mixed. Tattoos are cool also. The gun is obviously hiding his Thunderous Erection, clearly...

  • Oct. 25, 2012, 9:10 p.m. CST

    I passed on the mixed thought, but didn't erase.

    by fuzzy_dunlop

    Too many ales tonight.

  • Oct. 25, 2012, 9:15 p.m. CST

    He would look 100 times tougher if he had a buzzed head

    by Redhead_Redemption

    something like a close shave or a high and tight style

  • Oct. 25, 2012, 9:24 p.m. CST

    I can't help thinking he'd look more imposing WITHOUT the tats.

    by Bill C.

    I don't get tats in general, though, and I'm kind of tired of them in film, so hey. He still looks like the grandpa you don't want to fuck with...

    Is this the sequel to Nine?

    by Dawhiteguy

    I have been dreaming about them making this for eight crazy nights. Ever since I watched the movie Seven. Call it a sixth sense if you will. Or I might, just have the fast five. It doesn't take 47 ronin to know it. My three amigos agree. we spent 2 days in the valley accepting this fact. One flew over the cuckoos nest.

    Reminds me of Tommy Lee Jones. Anyone else see it?

  • Oct. 25, 2012, 9:45 p.m. CST

    This is a comedy right?

    by HoLottaMo

    Is Arnie a pregnant mall cop in this?

    @ octoburn

    by doczlove

    Yeah I can see that, for some reason I think it has to do with the way his lips are pursed. And that he looks old as shit

    Who was a Marine in WWII and can still kick some ass. Good for Arnold for trying to get back to what he's best at. I'll be there.

    by Holeman

    I was just saying, not so much. He looks like an elderly bastard trying to be bad ass. Looks like he needs a wheelchair. Not Conan at all.

  • Oct. 25, 2012, 11:42 p.m. CST

    alienfanatic is right

    by 2soon2eat

    Arnold going all in with the IGF-1, peptides and HGH. He'll keep actual test somewhat low, won't want to look too hormonized. Maybe a little decca, just a 200 mg taste per week.

  • Oct. 26, 2012, 12:08 a.m. CST

    I like the hair

    by Bass Ackwards

    The fluffy, poofy hair he was sporting in The Expendables 2 and the upcoming sheriff movie has been the source of talkback chagrin for me, glad to see other movies have stylists on hand who will actually tell him that making your hair super puffy isn't making you look younger.

  • Over a 30+ year film career, no less? Get over the whole age thing, for one - every single person gets older every day - give it a rest. It has nothing to do with anything. Just let it go. you're older too. If you're old enough to remember his glory years, you're an old fart to the teen generation today. As for the hair...yeah it's different...personally I'm not a fan of the grey on the sides like that, seems a little forced given how dark the rest of his hair is...but it's actually cool to see Arnold trying out looks he never has before. If you recall, through much of his film career he basically looked like the same exact guy in different clothes. At least here he's making some actual physical adjustments to his appearance other than outfit.

  • everything after that, is ruined. It's not just his politics or his ethics or his assholery, that ruined it for me. It's the fact that he gave, not one shit, about how his actions affected the people close to him. Though, I also hated his politics and his ethics and his assholery. The Terminator, Predator, Total Recall and T2 will live strong for me. That was before he forced his private life into my face with his goddamned book and interviews and fake shame which was really. "look how many woman I fucked". Now, he's just a misogonystic asshole (I'm slightly intoxicated and too lazy to look up the spellling to the word that means "violently sexist"),

    Mitt Romney in another life

    by IEatHippies

    Fact.

  • what has come out about him the past few years is nothing new about who is. If Arnold likes fucking a bunch of different women, then that's his business. You know it takes two to fuck.

  • pesticide from the Orkin man, for all the greedy sins he has committed in this life time.

  • Oct. 26, 2012, 12:40 a.m. CST

    Mitt Romney doesnt have a hundredth the testosterone as Arnie

    by wcolbert

    Say what you will about the hair or the pants - I'd wager good money Arnold would not only kick the hell out of Romney in a fight (god I'd pay to see that)...but also 99.9% of talkbackers, even at his age.

  • Mel Gibson is a prime example. The guy may be a class A asshat in reality, but as a director, he kicks all kinds of ass if you ask me. Loved APOCALYPTO. Likewise, I could not give less of a shit if Arnold fucked some maid. I really don't. That is their business - and yeah - as someone above me said, it takes two to fuck - you cant lay the blame squarely on him either way it goes. Don't even act like most of you haven't done stupid shit you regret - and I'll bet a number of you have cheated or entertained the thought of doing so. If you were rich an powerful and women were flinging their pussy at you left and right, I don't believe for a minute most of you who are so judgmental wouldn't fall into the exact same trap as Arnold. A man's libido can only take so much. Especially if his wife looks like Willem Dafoe and skeletor's bastard offspring. not that it justifies his actions. But again - who cares - that's his business. As for politics...I dont live in California, but I did observe - and I wouldn't say he did anything worse than the previous governor. I don't think he had bad intentions. But I really dont feel like arguing about politics - it's about as useful as explaining chess to a donkey and then arguing over a move. People need a scapegoat - so they blame the most recent politician in office. It's easier than recognizing that the system and the state were fucked up long before he took office, and nothing he or anyone else would have done was going to fix everything overnight. Annnyway. Fucking CONAN. YES. Get ahold of Stallone's HGH supplier and go to town in the gym, Arnold - but be careful, as I know you've had that heart surgery many years back.

  • Oct. 26, 2012, 1:19 a.m. CST

    Yeah, but then there's that Esteban Nunez thing

    by gun_will_travel

    Where douchebag Esteban Nunez and his buddies stabbed a college kid to death, bragging that his dad (douchebag politician Fabian Nunez) would get them off. Esteban got convicted and sentenced to 16 years - and then douchebag Arnold cut the sentence to 7 years, because Fabian is his personal friend. Every time I see his douchebag face on screen now, I don't see the Terminator, I see a guy who lets remoreseless killers out as political favors. If there was justice in the world, Esteban would catch AIDS after 7 years of prison assraping, and then share a steroid needle with Arnold.

    Can we please put the Ah-nuld joke to rest?

    by DerLanghaarige

    Yes, we get it, the man has a strong accent and doesn'T pronounce his name "Ornild", like the rest of you do. Haha, that was funny for 5 minutes in 2001, now it's just annoying.

  • Oct. 26, 2012, 2:24 a.m. CST

    Gun_will_travel, just googled that story after reading your post

    by Bobo_Vision

    Thats pretty despicable of Arnold. Having said that, I'll still watch his films....the same way I'll still watch Clint Eastwood's films even though in real life, he's a complete asshat.

    The Hair.

    by SS

    I've seen this hair cut on some seriously mean old bastards in Ireland and the U.K. It ain't stylish but, I don't think they're all for keeping up with the trends. It's severe.

  • Oct. 26, 2012, 2:40 a.m. CST

    He looks awesome, that pic alone makes me want to see the film.

    by DidntPullOutInTimeCop

    I bet he could kick the ass of anyone on here complaining about him aging.

  • Oct. 26, 2012, 3:27 a.m. CST

    he still has charisma

    by tomimt

    What Arnold lacks in acting talents, he can more than cover it whit sheer charisma.

  • Oct. 26, 2012, 4:24 a.m. CST

    Ayers had told me about the reinvention of Arnold for the film ...

    by The Comrade

    Seriously? You can't reinvent Arnold. He'll always be Arnold, regardless the role. There are actors out there who can't play anything but themselves. Harrison Ford comes to mind, or Tom Hanks. And, of course, Arnold.

    "Ten" - Arnie and Bo Derek on the beach...

    by Darkness

    A very uninspired title. "Breacher" sounded more like an Arnie flick. Although studio heads pleaded to Mr. Ayer that we can't have 'Jack Reacher' and 'John Breacher' on the same continent. I like the look. It seems The Schwarzenegger is really notching up a ton of post-governor movies. I'd rather see this than the humiliation of a tired, ageing Cyborg...Anyday.

  • Oct. 26, 2012, 8:09 a.m. CST

    Looks like Scott Glenn's been hitting the HGH...

    by Stegman84

    Is it just me, or has Arnie's comeback trail turned out to be just a succession of really hilariously bad haircuts?

  • Oct. 26, 2012, 8:44 a.m. CST

    Is it me or does his face look normal?

    by BackwardGalaxy

    He looks good in that pic. He looks like an old Arnold, which is what he should look like, as opposed to some Hollywood celeb who can't feel his face. I don't get the haters. It's okay for Clint Eastwood to shoot up a hood seven years after he secretly died and was re-animated by Dr. Frankenstein, but not the greatest action star who ever lived? I'm stoked for more Arnold flicks.

    by beastie

    I can separate and actor's personal life from his work...... if they have the ability to melt into a role. Arnold, on screen, just seems like Arnold. He's not a good actor, so it's a bit more difficult.

  • This is gonna be a man movie! Man shit gonna happen in the movie! Haters can suck a dick up, Arnold rules!

    by Luke

    That was nice ;-) Butcha lost it a little bit towards the end! Personally, I think he looks tough as f*ck. agree very much with the poster who says this is better than his look in Expendables; here he looks like someone you would not want to piss off. I would be very happy if Arnold aged gracefully across his new movies and played the role(s) of the tough old bastard. I look forward to it greatly. Ps between this, The Last Stand, The Tomb, King Conan...how many films is the guy able to work on at once?!
