To this point, the most exciting news to come out of the new Terminator Genisys film was that Thor: The Dark World's would be directing. However, The Hollywood Reporter has the scoop on several high profile actors currently in the running for the coveted roles, and those names include...

For Sarah Connor: (Game of Thrones), (The Spectacular Now), and Aussie soap star .

Kyle Reese: The frontrunner appears to be (Tron: Legacy)

And the most exciting tidbit of all is that, when it comes to John Connor, is apparently Taylor's target, though it should be stressed that not even a single meeting has taken place.

I can't tell you how much I want to see Tom Hardy as John Connor. After his The Dark Knight Rises costar was given such a stillborn outing in Terminator: Salvation, I'm stoked to see what Hardy could do with it. As far as Kyle Reese, let's just say I hope a few more names are added to that shortlist IMMEDIATELY.

For Sarah Connor, of the names mentioned, my pick would undoubtedly be Emilia Clarke. It's not simply a matter of who Taylor has worked with before, however, there is something to the idea of a natural transition from Daenerys Targaryen to a young Sarah Connor. It's not merely about her being a badass, you have to consider that this new Terminator focuses on a young Sarah Connor. It's about finding an actress who can convey burgeoning strength; power on the rise. Does that not sound like Daenerys?

What do you guys think?
