Watch: Schwarzenegger Says Fans' Fave Movie Lines for Reddit AMA
Besides being an action star, Arnold Schwarzenegger is just an incredibly cool and charismatic guy. This writer is proud to say he had the good fortune of meeting the international superstar on the set of The Last Stand a couple years ago, and he couldn't have been more nice. Now Schwarzenegger did something really for for his fans in the form of another AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit. However, since he's already done a regular AMA and even one specifically on fitness, this time he decided to do something different. As a cool way to promote his movie Escape Plan (in theaters now) he had fans post their favorite quotes from his movies, and he reenacted them and posted the video to YouTube for everyone to enjoy. It's just awesome!
The first quote was surprisingly from his holiday comedy (and my guilty pleasure) Jingle All the Way:
He also threw in his favorite line from Escape Plan just for good measure:
Then there was this glorious threat from The Running Man:
Fans of Kindergarten Cop will know this classic line, with bonus military shoutout to a fan:
And also this line, which might be the calmest the actor has ever been on screen:
He also reached way back into his career for this Conan revival:
And here's one of the most repeated lines from the movie Predator:
Finally, Schwarzenegger said thanks, and gave fans one more little movie treat:
What made this even more fun was that Schwarzenegger did this while on the set of the zombie drama Maggie. That nighttime shot with the fire in the background was perfect for his Predator line. As the actor wrote on the AMA page, "Whenever I go to an event, someone asks me to yell out one of my lines. Even when I walk into Starbucks, people scream at me to 'Get to the choppa.' So to celebrate Escape Plan hitting theaters today, since I've already done an AMA and a Fitness AMA and I pop in on /r/fitness when I can, I thought it would be fun to offer myself to yell out all of your favorite lines." Schwarzenegger added that he might come back and do some more lines he missed on Monday when he's back on set. Stay tuned. Cool?
