Variety is reporting that five actors are currently up for the role of Kyle Reese, originally portrayed by Michael Beihn, in director Alan Taylor's Terminator: Genesis. Initially, names like Garrett Hedlund and Nicholas Hoult were being thrown out as contenders, but it appears that lesser known actors are up for the role. Anton Yelchin isn't one of them. Sorry, Salvation fans.

Here they are:

Tom Cocquerel

Jai Courtney is probably the most recognizable of the bunch, playing John McClane's son in A Good Day to Die Hard and one of the villains in Jack Reacher. I do have to say that Wilson Bethel resembles Beihn from a physical standpoint, but I'm also not so much of a purist that it would upset me if an actor that doesn't look like Beihn is cast.

Terminator: Genesis is slated for a July 1, 2015 release.

What do you think of these choices? Let me know below and on Twitter
