The auditioning bout is finally over and Paramount Pictures have selected their leading man for 'Terminator: Genesis'. The sci-fi actioner has signed up Jai Courtney -below ('A Good Day to Die Hard') to star as Kyle Reese, formerly portrayed by Michael Biehn and Anton Yelchin in former installments in the franchise. Of course the 27 year old Australian actor has scored more than just a fantastic and iconic part but also screen time with hottie Emilia Clarke ('Game of Thrones') who is already on board to play Sarah Connor. Courtney beat off Boyd Holbrook ('The Skeleton Twins'), Thomas Cocquerel, Wilson Bethel ('Hart of Dixie') and Sam Reid ('Serena') to land the role.
'Terminator: Genesis' will open in theatres on 1 July 2015 and is directed by Alan Taylor.
