schwarzeneggeterminator-031109California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger was at his annual Arnold Classic in Columbus, Ohio over the weekend and was asked by TheArnoldFans.com about his cameos in McG’s Terminator Salvation and Sylvester Stallone’s The Expendables.

While confirming his cameo for Terminator Salvation, Schwarzenegger really downplayed the appearance.  He’s concerned that the studio would overreach to promote his appearance in the film (which he says he’s seen only a working print of–without the sfx, etc.), something he’s not interested in being involved in.  Click through the jump to read what Arnold had to say.

Here’s the relevant excerpt for the Terminator cameo:

…But you know as I said to the director when they began that I wish them the best of luck, that I’m happy that they move forward with the franchise, I am very happy with where I am with my profession as the governor and they should try to find a way of doing a story that does not include me at all, not even one single shot in it. I don’t believe in that. To kind of have them go out and promote the movie and say you know Arnold is in the movie and everyone thinks that I’m the Terminator and in fact you only see one second of me in there and so I don’t think thats the right thing to do. And you know that’s the danger of that, and that’s why I feel reluctant to be part of the movie in the first place. So it doesn’t get promoted that way.

Schwarzenegger was much more upbeat about his cameo in Stallone’s The Expendables:

So I… naturally when he asked me if I would do a cameo, which will just be something quick, like I walk out of a hotel or out of a office building and he will walk up and we will bump into each other and there will be some mumbling and then we will walk off (crowd laughs). So it will be something very simple, that will be again, just a cameo, so that’s what we’re going to do. I promised him I’d do that and I’m looking forward to that. Ok? Good.
