New “Conan” Movie To Maintain Austrian Oafishness Of The Original

|

Ladies and gentlemen, meet your new Conan The Barbarian — Austrian bodybuilder-turned-actor Roland Kickinger:

Roland Kickinger Conan

For all the recent movie remakes that seem to be deliberately taunting fans of the original, it’s nice to see that the Conan producers literally casting an Austrian former-bodybuilder who not only appeared in Terminator: Salvation, he also played Arnold Schwarzenegger in an A&E biopic. For the first time in remake history, fans of the original movie might not be able to complain about this casting decision.

Countdown to Kickinger’s California political career? Give or take eight years.
