Yelchin On 'Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins'
 
In the same month that <i>Star Trek XI</i> opens, <font color=yellow>Anton Yelchin</font> will be seen in the fourth installation of the <i>Terminator</i> series, where he will play the teen Kyle Reese, who will grow up to be the father of John Connor. <p>As reported by <A class="link" HREF="http://www.canmag.com/">CanMag</A>, <i>Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins</i> will continue the <i>Terminator</i> sage. According to the press release from Warner Brothers, "Set in post-apocalyptic 2018, John Connor is the man fated to lead the human resistance against Skynet and its army of Terminators. But the future Connor was raised to believe in is altered in part by the appearance of Marcus Wright, a stranger whose last memory is of being on death row. Connor must decide whether Marcus has been sent from the future, or rescued from the past. As Skynet prepares its final onslaught, Connor and Marcus both embark on an odyssey that takes them into the heart of Skynetís operations, where they uncover the terrible secret behind the possible annihilation of mankind."<p>Taking on the role of Reese was made easier for Yelchin by <font color=yellow>Michael Biehn's</font> previous performance as Reese. "You're really lucky when you have a) a script to work with and then b) a whole other movie to base your character off of and research and think about," said Yelchin. "The great thing about Michael Biehn's performance is that it's very layered and you get a very complex character to play. So it makes it even more interesting for me to come and look at that complex character and say, 'Well, hey, how do you get there? How did he become the guy who says to Sarah Connor, 'They don't feel much pain, but I do.'' There's so much to everything that he says and everything that he does." <p>Yelchin has based his own interpretation of Reese using events from the past <i>Terminator</i> movies. "So, looked at that and said, 'God, this guy grew up and never had any relationships with any girls. What does that say about him? Look at how angry he is here, what's that say?' It's just there so much. There's a vast wealth of information."<p>To read more, head to the article located <A class="link" HREF="http://www.canmag.com/nw/12109-terminator-salvation-future-begins-anton-yelchin">here</A>.<center></center>

Michael Biehn.

What happened? He was/is so talented. He played such cool characters, then he was gone.

Biehn took too many roles in crappy films so he gradually disappeared. He did two tv series that died quickly.

That doesn't necessarily mean that it killed his career. It could just be that he didn't find work after them, or didn't find MAINSTREAM work.

For example. We hear on this site that Scott Bakula is in new plays from time to time. But that's only because he was on Star Trek. If he hadn't been, we wouldn't be hearing about it.

And seriously, how many of us attend plays? I never do.

Sure it didn't kill his career but it made him less high profile and into someone you don't really see in tv and movies that often. Steven Segal used to be pretty big and now you just see him in crappy direct to DVD movies.

What if he got the role of Archer? That would've been cool.
