The Governator?

He’s been a famous body builder. He’s been a killer cyborg from the future. He’s been Governor of California. And now, in this week’s exclusive cover scoop, Arnold Schwarzenegger reveals his plans for the next phase of his extraordinary career: He’s going be a cartoon superhero, known as The Governator.

“When I ran for governor back in 2003 and I started hearing people talking about ‘the Governator,’ I thought the word was so cool,” Schwarzenegger, 63, tells EW in his first press interview since leaving office last January. “The word Governator combined two worlds: the world of politics and the movie world. And [this cartoon] brings everything together. It combines the governor, the Terminator, the bodybuilding world, the True Lies…”

An animated series about a cyborg from the future who can bench-press the Golden Gate bridge and has a secret double life as a counter-terrorism operative who somehow ends up in politics and triples the debt of California? Sounds like an interesting combination.

Darnit. I was hoping his first project would be a sequel to “Hercules in New York.” The original left so many unanswered questions — one of them being, “What!?”:

Update: I’m getting tweets like this one taking issue with my use of the word “entertainment” in the title. Point taken.
