News comes from Arnold Schwarzenegger, who disclosed that there will be two T-800 cyborgs in the sequel. A younger version (played by fitness trainer Aaron V. Williamson,) which will be controlled by Skynet and an older reprogrammed version portrayed by Schwarzenegger. His aged model cyborg will appear later in the film.
Schwarzenegger discussed his aging and graying robot self to MTV News. This is what he had to say.
“The way that the character is written, it’s a machine underneath. It’s this metal skeleton. But above that is human flesh. And the Terminator’s flesh ages, just like any other human being’s flesh. Maybe not as fast. But it definitely ages.”
