So who else is joining Arnie in the new Terminator movie?

I'll give you a clue - well he's been in pretty much everything, but has some special Spidey credentials and also he played Dr. Emil Skoda in NBC's Law & Order.

Yes you're right, it's J.K. Simmons. The seasoned actor has now got his hands on another franchise; Alan Taylor's upcoming Terminator Genesis.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Simmons will play:

"a weary and alcoholic detective who has followed a bizarre case involving Sarah Connor and robots for more than three decades (since 1984, which, not coincidentally, is the year the original movie, directed by James Cameron, was released)."

With Arnold Schwarzenegger set to return as The Terminator, who else is lined up for the other roles we know so well? The roles of John Connor, Sarah Connor and Kyle Reese will be played by Jason Clarke, Emilia Clarke, and Jai Courtney respectively. We can thank the director Alan Taylor (who also directed Thor: The Dark World) for the inspired casting choices.

It's not something I'm going to miss when it comes out next year.
