You Can't Take the Hollywood out of the Governor

Schwarzenegger set to star in new movie

We all knew it was only a matter of time. But the governator could only fend off the Hollywood bug for so long.

Art will imitate life when Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger spends a few hours playing himself later this year in a movie by Sylvester Stallone. Could this be the door back to Hollywood, where the governor still spends most of his time.
Stallone's publicist, Sheryl Main, revealed more details Tuesday of Schwarzenegger's rare big-screen appearance. The governor said he has done just three cameos for friends since becoming governor in 2003.

Shooting on the film, "The Expendables," will begin March 28 in Brazil and move to New Orleans for two months. Main says the governor will shoot his scene in Los Angeles. A short commute from where he stays.

His role will be a familiar one: California governor.

Stallone writes, directs and stars in the movie, a film about a group of mercenaries trying to overthrow a South American dictator. It also stars Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Eric Roberts, Mickey Rourke and Forest Whitaker.

This is of course not the first time the two actors have worked together. The two met in a battle royale not too long ago.
