Do you ever wonder if Arnold Schwarzenegger secretly wishes he could do Shakespeare occasionally? Do you think he feels trapped by his muscle-bound body, explosion-filled resume and signature accent? Yeah, us either. Which is good, considering Schwarzenegger allegedly has a new cartoon series in the works. According to Deadline, Arnold may be signed up for an educational kid’s show, “content with a purpose” produced by the same company delighting the world’s children with “Gisele & the Green Team, with supermodel Gisele BÃƒÂ¼ndchen as an environmental superhero; and Martha & Friends, featuring a 10-year-old Martha Stewart running an event-planning business.” If Schwarzenegger can pass between the barrier that separates movies from reality, we’re sure he can successfully play an eight-year-old version of himself as governor. Last Action Hero was a documentary, right?
However, others believe that that Arnold’s project is based on a comic book hero he’s developing with Stan Lee. “I am packaging a Comic Book character right now. I’m going to announce that sometime at the end of March or the beginning of April,” the former governor told the fan site TheArnoldFans.com. So far Schwarzenegger has only revealed that is it an “an international TV series,” so we’ll have to wait for his official announcement on April 4 to find out for sure. Throw a True Lies 2 script on top of that pile and we’re happy as pigs in mud. Sorry, Arnold; you can keep that monologue from King Lear to yourself for now.
