Like father, like son! Arnold Scharzenegger’s 18-year-old love child, Joseph Baena, looks just like his famous father in this ‘Terminator 2’ re-creation. You have to check it out!
Joseph Baena, 18, may be ready to hit the big screen just like his dad! Arnold Schwarzenegger’s illegitimate child showed off his acting chops by channeling his own father for a remake of the finale scene of Terminator 2: Judgement Day, and it’s uncanny how alike they are.
The teenager has clearly perfected Arnold’s scowl, and in the clip, he looks like quite the bada**. After taking his enemy’s rifle, he carefully puts on a pair of sunglasses, and rides off on a motorcycle into the night, all without breaking a sweat or his stern expression. There’s no dialogue at all, but it’s pretty awesome to watch — it’s almost as if we were actually watching Arnold do it in the real movie!
This video was filmed, produced and directed by Joseph’s friend, Ben Hess, who’s entering it in a film contest, according to TMZ. Unfortunately, they won’t find out if they won for a few more weeks!
Terminator 2 came out way back in 1991, six years before Joseph was even born. Meanwhile, the world didn’t even know of the 18-year-old’s existence until 2011, when it was revealed that Maria Shriver was leaving Arnold after finding out about his affair with their housekeeper, Joseph’s mother, more than a decade earlier.
Obviously, Joseph’s relationship with Arnold and the rest of the actor’s family is complicated, but they’ve slowly been figuring out how to make it work over the last few years. Now, the father and son duo have a great dynamic — and we’re sure Arnie is pretty darn proud of his son’s acting skills in this short film!
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Joseph’s Terminator scenes? Do you think he should recreate the entire movie?
