Welcome back to Hollywood Arnold!
The last thing Arnold Schwarzenegger needed just as he was preparing to launch a variety of new film/TV/comic book projects was a major scandal like, oh, announcing the existence of the secret love child you had with your housekeeper 14 years ago.
As expected, the whole crazy love-child thing has temporarily derailed Arnold's plan to jump back into the movie-making business. His agency issued the following statement (via Slashfilm, MSNBC): "Governor Schwarzenegger is focusing on personal matters and is not willing to commit to any production schedules or timelines. This includes Cry Macho, The Terminator franchise and other projects under consideration. We will resume discussions when Governor Schwarzenegger decides."
So ... maybe he won't be back, then? Not likely. A scandal sucks, no which way about it -- but you just have to learn from all the other moronic celebrities out there by taking a breather and letting the whole thing pass. As soon as Lindsay Lohan screws up again, the Arnold story will be back-page, been-there-done-that nonsense, and we'll be back on track counting down the days to that first image with Arnold in the leather jacket and black sunglasses.
And we give Hollywood three weeks before they're negotiating for Arnold's illegitimate son to star alongside him. Teenage Terminators? Hey, if X-Men: First Class does well ...
