Here's one for the "How Ironic!!" files...
The movie 'Terminator' was filmed in 1984.
During the casting for Terminator, Orion pictures wanted to pick an up and coming star for the role of Kyle Reese. Arnold Schwarzenegger was
initially considered for the role (he was still relatively new to the acting world then). The problem with this was, if they had Schwarzenegger play
Reese, they would need an even bigger star to play the Terminator, and this could have adverse budget implications. Consequently, they considered
possibly using Sylvester Stallone as the Terminator, or possibly even Mel Gibson.
One other name was considered for the role of the Terminator, and this was O.J. Simpson. Director James Cameron stepped in and objected to O.J.
Simpson because he felt O.J. wouldn't be..."believable"...as a killer!
Oh, the irony!!
Just 10 short years later, Simpson would be on trial for the murders of Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman following the slowest and most publicized car
chase in history.
The Terminator role ultimately went to Schwarzenegger.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming already in progress.
That is all.
