Arnold Schwarzenegger is about to step into a new role as governor of California, but his image isn't about to fade from movie screens and home entertainment centers anytime soon. In fact, Schwarzenegger is appearing onscreen in 3,154 locations -- albeit briefly, in a cameo appearance in Universal Pictures' The Rundown, the action-adventure tale starring Dwayne The Rock Johnson and directed by Peter Berg that has rung up $33 million in its first 11 days of domestic release. The actor-turned-politician is glimpsed briefly at the start of the film as Johnson enters a nightclub. "Have fun," Schwarzenegger says to the younger action star as he exits the club. The unscripted scene, designed as a passing of the torch, came about spontaneously when Schwarzenegger visited the set during production. Berg and Johnson came up with the bit of business, and Schwarzenegger readily played along.
