'Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines' star Nick Stahl has been airing his feelings on the recent Christian Bale casting of the new John Connor role in the upcoming 'Terminator Salvation : The Future Begins'. Apparently MTV are reporting that originally Stahl was told something different.
Talking to MTV, Stahl says although he doesn’t about being involved in the project, he was informed early on that Connor would be a middle-aged man, not someone in his early thirties, in the new film.
“They said it would be a 50-year-old man, but I guess they reduced the age a little bit,” Stahl said of how the franchise producers had explained the plot to him. “That’s what they told me very early on [in development of the ‘Salvation’ script]. That it was gonna take place further in the future, and I probably wouldn’t be on.”
“I like [Bale] a lot…he’s a little older, and they wanted someone a little older, and also he’s got a name. He’s a big guy now. So, God bless.”
“I love the franchise, and I love the movies,” he continued, “so I’ll probably be seeing the fourth one.”
