Arnold Schwarzenegger movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘The Terminator,’ ‘True Lies,’ ‘Twins’
On July 30, 2019 Arnold Schwarzenegger will celebrate his 72nd birthday. Over his long career, he has had an unusually varied career in sports, the entertainment industry and most recently in politics.

He first came to international attention as a bodybuilder winning both the Mr. Universe and Mr. Olympia contests numerous times. He became the face of the then new sport of bodybuilding and that brought him to the attention of the entertainment industry. His first film was a low budget film called “Hercules in New York” for which he was mostly used for his physique. Due to his heavy accent his dialogue had to be dubbed by another actor. His notoriety increased with the bodybuilding documentary “Pumping Iron” which made him a familiar face to American audiences.

Jason Momoa Is Down to Remake the Film Twins With Peter Dinklage: "Tell Me Where to Sign!"

Jason Momoa is all for reuniting with Game of Thrones costar Peter Dinklage for a remake of the 1988 classic Twins. During an Aquaman Q&a panel at Celebrity Fan Fest in Texas, Momoa was asked if he'd consider starring in the reboot alongside Dinklage. "F*ckin' tell me where to sign!" he responded. "Absolutely. That'd be amazing. I love that movie." Same, dude, same.

The original comedy - which centers on two experimental fraternal twins who are separated at birth before reuniting later in life - featured Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito as the leading men. Currently, a sequel is in the works with both Schwarzenegger and DeVito on board, though there isn't a release date yet.

We're looking forward to the follow-up with the original cast, but we are pretty stoked about Momoa and Dinklage potentially starring in their own rendering of the movie. After all, Momoa's Game of Thrones

THR is reporting that Avengers: Infinity War co-stars Josh Brolin and Peter Dinklage are set to team up for the comedy Brothers, which is in development at Legendary Entertainment.

Scripted by Etan Cohen, the film will see Brolin and Dinklage starring as two unlikely brothers, in a similar vein to the 1988 Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito comedy Twins. Specific plot details are being kept under wraps.

In addition to starring, Brolin and Dinklage will also produce through their Brolin Productions and Esutary Films companies respectively, as will Andrew Lazar (American Sniper).

Brolin will next be seen this April as he reprises the role of Thanos for Avengers: Endgame, while Dinklage returns that same month as Tyrion Lannister for the eighth and final season of HBO’s epic fantasy Game of Thrones.

Jessica Simpson Is Unrecognizable in Her Danny DeVito Costume, and I Have Yet to Stop Laughing
Jessica Simpson brought the LOLs with her Halloween costume this year. The singer and footwear mogul teamed up with her husband, Eric Johnson, to re-create a movie poster from the 1988 buddy comedy Twins. Jessica was unrecognizable in a bald cap and suit as she struck the classic pose as Danny DeVito, while Eric sported a matching getup while channeling Arnold Schwarzenegger; in the film, the actors play fraternal twins who are separated at birth.

Eric and Jessica, who is pregnant with the couple's third child, are certainly not strangers to the funny costume game. Last year, they dressed as Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson, and back in 2011, Jessica announced her first pregnancy with a clever "mummy" costume. See more of the best celebrity costumes here!
