Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Son Recreates An Iconic ‘Terminator 2’ Scene For Its 25th Anniversary

Joseph Baena was seven years away from being born when his father, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and James Cameron teamed up once again in 1991’s Terminator 2. The sci-fi blockbuster went on to be a modern day classic, providing the world with countless iconic action scenes as well as a handful of unforgettable quotes. Arnold, as the lumbering and yet, thoughtful, T-800 cyborg created to butcher the human race said he’d be back, and he did come back — in a bunch of unneeded, poorly received sequels. But, for a few short years, everything was perfect for Terminator and Terminator 2 (as long as you didn’t think of the temporal anomalies).

Now, to celebrate T2‘s 25th anniversary, Joseph Baena, Arnold’s 18-year-old son, plays the T-800 sent back to save John Connor and brutally ignore Budnick from Salute Your Shorts.

Here’s the original, classic scene. Be awed at the tribute.

Baena does a pretty good job being a silent robot. It may not be the most challenging role, considering he shares his father’s T-800 exoskeleton DNA, but you can’t deny that the kid nailed it. The verisimilitude employed by the filmmakers doesn’t hurt either. Almost everything is spot on.

Maybe this can spawn a series of Baby Terminator videos. I’d watch.
