Arnold Schwarzenegger Was Baffled By Son’s Role In The Boys Spinoff

Arnold Schwarzenegger was baffled when his son, Patrick, showed him photos from the set of The Boys Presents: Varsity spinoff show. Based on the comics written by Garth Ennis and illustrated by Darick Robertson, The Boys has gone on to become one of the most popular superhero shows on television in recent years. The series follows Billy Butcher and Hughie Campbell, who are part of the titular vigilante team that attempts to combat superpowered individuals who abuse their abilities, especially those within Vought’s superteam, The Seven.

Following the success of The Boys, Amazon Prime Video began to expand its superhero franchise. The first spinoff, the animated anthology series titled The Boys Presents: Diabolical, premiered a total of eight episodes this past March. The first live-action spinoff, The Boys Presents: Varsity, is currently in production and intended to introduce the next generation of Supes. Other than Patrick Schwarzenegger, the cast includes Lizze Broadway, Jaz Sinclair, Chance Perdomo, Maddie Phillips, London Thor, Derek Luh, Asa Germann, Shelley Conn, Sean Patrick Thomas, and Marco Pigossi.

During an interview with Variety for his new show The Staircase, Patrick Schwarzenegger also discusses his work on The Boys Presents: Varsity. Though he couldn’t confirm reports that he’s playing a character named Golden Boy, Schwarzenegger admits that he has shown his father photos from the set and even shares Arnold’s baffled reaction to the show. Read what he says below:

He looked at me and he was like, “What the f*ck are you filming?” I was like, “It’s this show called The Boys. You have to watch an episode to understand it, or else I can’t articulate what happens in it.”

Schwarzenegger made his acting debut in The Benchwarmers at the age of 10 and is now receiving rave reviews for performance in the HBO Max series The Staircase as Todd, son of the novelist and convicted murderer Michael Peterson (Colin Firth). It can sometimes be difficult for a son or daughter of a famous actor to follow in the footsteps of their parent, especially a larger-than-life persona like Arnold Schwarzenegger, though Patrick appears to be slowly garnering respect by putting care into his roles.

Considering The Boys’ reputation for containing copious amounts of sex and violence, it’s not difficult to imagine why Arnold might be a bit befuddled by the photos if he’s never heard of the show. It’s also easy to imagine The Boys Presents: Varsity spinoff show raising the stakes in this regard, as the series will focus on a group of young adults at Vought’s superhero college as their physical, sexual, and moral boundaries are put to the test. If Arnold Schwarzenegger reacted the way he did, it will be interesting to see how audiences react to The Boys spinoff show when it premieres next year.

‘I am officially off the market’: When Margot Robbie revealed she made the ‘conscious’ decision of not dating actors

Margot Robbie revealed her decision to not date actors because of the media scrutiny that came with a public relationship of two high-profile actors
Back in 2015, A-lister Margot Robbie made a declaration that she would not be dating any actors. The actress may have alluded to her fiance Tom Ackerley, who she married the following year in 2016. In an exclusive interview with Marie Claire, she revealed that being in a relationship as an actor herself came with its own set of challenges. She believed that dating someone who was popular would add on to the media scrutiny.

Margot Robbie opened up on why she made a conscious decision to not date actorsTalking to Marie Claire, she claimed, “I am officially off the market.” She then shared the reasoning behind her decision and added, “I made a conscious decision not to date actors.” She continued to explain, “But not because I hate actors. That’s a nasty generalization to make, and that’s not the case. People take such an interest in your love life when you have a profile, it puts a lot of stress on a relationship.”
The Barbie actress continued, “So two people with profiles, I figure it’s just double the amount of scrutiny, and I’d like to avoid that at all costs.” This came after reports of her locking lips with Tarzan co-star Alexander Skarsgard started making rounds. It was reported that she was caught kissing the actor during the Sundance Film Festival.

Margot Robbie revealed she opted for a minimal lifestyle even after becoming an actorIn the interview, Robbie also opened up about how she was adapting to fame. She shared, “I have a normal 24-year-old life. If I were a waitress, I’d probably have the exact same lifestyle. I’d go to the same clubs I go to already, live in the same house with the same housemates, hang out with the same people.”
However, Margot Robbie tied the knot with Tom Ackerley who is an English producer and actor. The duo met on the sets of 2013 movie Suite Francaise where Tom was working as an assistant director. Post marriage, both of them launched their production company LuckyChap Entertainment.

‘Rocky’ Was Quite Different In His Original Screenplay, Sylvester Stallone Claims

Sylvester Stallone took his friend’s advice on a rewrite of the original screenplay to Rocky. A few tweaks later, he was on his way to major success.
In the new Netflix documentary Sly, Stallone discussed how he initially conceived of the project, which had a much harder edge. In the early version, Rocky was depicted as a “thuggish” character, inspired by Martin Scorsese’s crime drama, Mean Streets.

But Stallone’s perspective changed when a friend read the script and thought the boxer was too cruel for audiences to actually care about him.
Stallone recalled her crying.

“She goes, ‘I hate Rocky. I hate him. He’s cruel. He hits people. He beats them up.’”
Stallone took it to heart, and asked what he could do to soften the character.

“I said, ‘what if you stop short of it?’ Like, maybe he almost did. He could have, that’s his job, but he doesn’t?’ ‘That’d be nice,’” he added. “I said, ‘What if he had a girlfriend or something?’ ‘Yeah, that’s nice.’ So I go back, start writing that: ‘Girlfriend. Nice.’”
$117 million in box office later, a franchise was born.

Stallone also revealed that actor Dolph Lundgren sent him to the hospital during one fight scene in Rocky IV.
“Dolph Lundgren… he pulverized me,” Stallone says in the documentary. “Later that night, my heart started to swell—which happens when the heart hits the chest—and then my blood pressure went up to 260, and they thought I was going to be talking to angels. Next thing I know, I’m in intensive care, where I’m surrounded by nuns, and I thought, ‘OK, that’s curtains.’”
Stallone was in the hospital for nine days following the incident, praying for “one more round.”
“For the first minute of the fight, it is going to be a free-for-all,” Stallone told Lundgren. The Swedish actor joked in a separate interview that all he did was “obey orders,” explaining, “[Stallone] was the boss. I did what he told me.”
Doctors allegedly told Stallone that he received a blow to the ribs that made his heart rattle around in his ribcage, a condition typically seen in head-on collisions. “I did hit a bus, of sorts,” Stallone joked.
