Every Movie The Show’s Arnold Schwarzenegger Parody Stars In

The Simpsons repeatedly parodies celebrities, such as its Arnold Schwarzenegger parody Rainier Wolfcastle, who stars in several fake movies. The long-running animated show has a history of tackling almost any topic or subject imaginable. This was part of The Simpsons’ DNA from early on, and while the show has brought some of the world’s biggest celebrities aboard as guest stars, it has never been afraid to parody them as well.

In 1991, The Simpsons turned its attention towards Arnold Schwarzenneger. At that time, Schwarzenegger was becoming one of the biggest movie stars in the world. The former body-builder already had appeared in Conan the Barbarian, The Terminator, Commando, The Running Man, Predator, Twins, Total Recall, and was about to be seen as the Terminator again in Terminator 2: Judgement Day. Instead of getting Schwarzenegger to appear in the animated series, The Simpsons created character based on him: Rainier Wolfcastle.

Introduced in The Simpsons season 2, episode 12, Rainier Wolfcastle is a buff Austrian action movie star. Wolfcastle has appeared in several episodes of The Simpsons over the years, which has allowed the show to flesh out the actor’s filmography. Much like Schwarzenegger, Wolfcastle has a long history of franchises and action movies, but he also tried his hand at some dramatic work and comedies. In total, The Simpsons has revealed 24 movies that Wolfcastle starred in:

McBain McBain II: You Have the Right to Remain Dead McBain III McBain IV: Fatal Discharge McBain V: The Final Chapter McBain VI McBain: Let’s Get Silly Radioactive Man and Fallout Boy: The Movie My Baby is an Ugly Man Undercover Nerd Magic Ticket Let’s Get Nerdy Help! My Son is a Nerd Mrs. Mom Frankenberry: The Movie 2: The Frankenberry Wears Prada I Shoot Your Face I Shoot Your Face Again Father of the Presibot Jaws of Life The Real Deal Total Explosion Saving Irene Ryan Nudist Camp Commandant The Incredible Shrinking McBain

Mcbaine the simpsons Ranier Wolfcastle

Rainier Wolfcastle’s filmography parodies more than the movies that Arnold Schwarzenegger actually starred in. Saving Irene Ryan is a clear parody of Steven Spielberg’s war epic Saving Private Ryan. His biggest (fictional) role in The Simpsons, the McBain movies, is a spoof on Bruce Willis’ Die Hard franchise and John McClane’s last name. As Wolfcastle’s biggest role and the one he returns to the most, though, McBain holds a similar place in his career as playing The Terminator did for Schwarzenegger. Undercover Nerd is likely a parody of Kindergarten Cop, while Total Explosion can also be a reference to Total Recall.

The Simpsons might have parodied Schwarzenegger with Rainier Wolfcastle — especially when the actor began having political ambitions — but the cartoon also managed to bring Arnold into the fold down the road. He played President Arnold Schwarzenegger in The Simpsons Movie and served as the main villain of the movie. Schwarzenegger hasn’t returned to voice his fictional version of himself since, and Wolfcastle hasn’t appeared in The Simpsons since season 6 either.

‘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.
