There’s a new Terminator movie coming out and Arnold Schwarzenegger is back, baby!
It’s called Terminator Genisys and I guess it’s about how the original movies changed the timeline leading up to humanity’s judgement day at the hands of the machines, so now the world needs to be saved all over again.
Time-travel paradoxes aside, this is pretty cool news. But as the franchise gets older we keep needing new terminators. We’ve already seen lady terminators and terminators of varying ethnic backgrounds, it’s Hollywood’s version of a non-renewable resource.

So who’s gonna fill the next pair of liquid-metal shoes? I think country music has the perfect candidate.
The search begins:
Kenny Chesney – Prefers to be barefoot. Only ideal for beach termination.
Justin Moore – A bit emotional when winning ACM awards. Occasional tears could cause electrical issues.
[Footnote: He did punch Chuck Liddell once. It didn’t go well.]Luke Bryan – Too smiley.
Toby Keith – He’s got the size.
Brantley Gilbert – He’s got the attitude.
The obvious choice:
Adkins is perfect for Terminator 14: Rebel Sons, which will be set in Old West-style Los Angeles, where the Connor family tree begins. With a cowboy hat, horse, six shooter and metal skeleton, he’d make one very country killing machine, indeed.
And yes, James Cameron, you can buy that idea.
