Of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s five children, two have followed in his footsteps as an actor: Patrick Schwarzenegger and Joseph Baena. Regarding the latter, you will remember that five years ago, Baena recreated one of the most memorable scenes of his father in the 1991 decade. Terminator 2: doomsday. Now, on the set of his new movie, Baena totally re-channels the younger version of Arnold Schwarzenegger, albeit in a different way.
Joseph Baena is currently working on Bitflix Wash, the world’s first film fully financed with cryptocurrencies. While no details have been revealed about WashDepending on the premise or who plays Baena, the actor shared a photo of himself on Instagram while filming in Honolulu, Hawaii, and it looks like his father was pulled from decades past to the present. See for yourself!
Remember when The terminatorThe antagonist of the same name arrived in 1984 from the future without clothes and was immediately ready to start hunting Sarah Connor? Aside from Joseph Baena wearing shorts in this picture, that’s the same kind of vibe I’m getting here. Or, if you prefer, you could imagine that Baena is trying to emulate her father’s version of Conan the Barbarian, albeit with shorter hair. In any case, the guy is torn and it will be interesting to know what exactly he is doing in Lava.
Wash is just one of the many projects that Jospeh Baena has, with others like Scam squad, Carriage, Encounters and Bully high. He also shared a photo of himself in May, shirtless, riding a horse, which served as a good case for why he should star in a western. With Arnold Schwarzenegger still in the acting game and Patrick Schwarzenegger building his own filmography, I wonder if the day will come when Baena will perform alongside his father or half brother. Going a step further, could we one day see him take on one of his father’s roles in an official remake / reboot? We’ll see, although I certainly got to see him playing a Terminator model.
Speaking of killer robots, Arnold Schwarzenegger last played a T-800 in 2019. Terminator: Dark Fate, and his upcoming projects include Kung Fury 2, Triplets (which will see him and Danny DeVito working with Tracy Morgan) and an as-yet untitled television series that is described as a “global spy adventure.” As for his personal life, Schwarzenegger paid a sweet tribute to Joseph Baena last month for his 24th birthday, and Baena joined his siblings in wishing their father a happy 74th birthday in July.
