Arnold Schwarzenegger explains why age isn’t a factor in “The Legend of Conan”

“The Legend of Conan” is a thing, it is happening, and it is coming whether we like it or not. Though the “Conan the Barbarian” sequel is still in its planning stages, Arnold Schwarzenegger has been talking the movie up while he’s been doing press for “The Last Stand.”

During a conversation with TheArnoldFans.com, Schwarzenegger and producer Fredrik Malmberg admitted that the movie still hasn’t been greenlit. If it is, though, they hope to have Peter Jackson’s WETA work on the film.

“We’re concentrating on the story and the script, and then we’ll go out and find the right director who has the same passion as the rest of us in the group,” Malmberg said. “We’re trying to get the TOP production people involved. We’re talking all the time about who we’d see doing the production, and our dream would be to have the WETA Workshop guys, the ‘Lord of the Rings’ and ‘Hobbit guys.’ They are huge ‘Conan’ fans and they would be great to be involved on the creative side.”

As for Schwarzenegger being — for lack of a better term — old, he said he feels as good now as he did when he made the original “Conan” movie. That’s a good thing, since “The Legend of Conan” is said to ignore the events of both “Conan the Destroyer” and 2011’s “Conan the Barbarian” and pick up after the 1984 “Conan the Barbarian” movie.

“Age doesn’t mean anything to me, because I work out every day. I work out twice a day, as a matter of fact,” Schwarzenegger said. “So for me, to get on the set and to swing the sword around again and to ride the horses and all those things doesn’t mean anything [does not scare me], because I feel like I did thirty years ago. So as long as I stay in shape, that’s the key thing, and to keep your body young.”

He added, “Even though you do feel the pain when you wipe out and when you do your fight scenes and you get more sore and the body doesn’t come back as quickly and all this … but just grind through it, you know? That’s what it’s all about!”

Democrats, Republicans and Millennials agree: 2017 is shaping up to be a spectacle — a spectacle that really kicks into high gear this Friday with the presidential inauguration. Not only will the new POTUS swear in, but all the Country’s highest offices will be filled. It’s a daunting prospect, and to feel a little anxious about it is only normal. But if your anxiety is snowballing into panic, we have a solution:
Bill Murray.

He’s the human embodiment of a mental “Happy Place”, and there’s really no problem he can’t solve. So, with that in mind, how about we all set aside reality for a moment and let Bill take the pain away by imagining a top-shelf White House cabinet filled exclusively by his signature characters. Here are a few hypothetical appointments for your consideration…

Secretary of Defense:
Bill Murray from Stripes

His incompetence is balanced by charm, and dumb luck is inexplicably on his side. America could do worse.

Secretary of State:
Bill Murray from Lost In Translation

A seasoned globetrotter steeped in regional traditions who has the respect of the whole wide world. And he kills Costello in karaoke, which is very important.

Press Secretary:
Bill Murray from Ghostbusters

“Cats and dogs, living together. Mass hysteria.” Dude knows how to brief a room.

Secretary of Health and Human Services:
Bill Murray from What About Bob.

A doctor-approved people person who knows that progress is measured in baby steps.

Secretary of Energy:
Bill Murray from Groundhog Day

Let’s be honest, this world is going to need a lot of do-overs.

Feeling better? Hold on to that bliss. And enjoy a healthy alternative to the inauguration brouhaha with multiple Murrays all Friday long in an IFC movie marathon including Kingpin, Zombieland, Ghostbusters, and Ghostbusters II.

Unless you’ve somehow missed every episode of the Simpsons since 1989, then surely you know that Hank Azaria is one of the most important character actors of our time. He’s so prolific and his voice is so dynamic that he’s responsible for more iconic personalities than most folks realize. Basically, he’s the great and powerful Oz — except that when you pull back the curtain the truth is actually more impressive. And now Hank is coming to IFC to bring yet another character to the TV pop culture hive mind in the new series Brockmire. Check out the trailer below.

Based on the following Funny or Die short and co-starring Amanda Peet, Brockmire follows the story of imploded major league sportscaster Jim Brockmire as he tries to resurrect his career by calling plays for a floundering minor league team in a podunk town.

The series is written by Joel Church-Cooper (Undateable) and produced by Funny or Die’s Mike Farah and Joe Farrell, meaning that there’s funny in front of the camera, funny behind the camera–funny all around. Sounds like a ball to us.

Brockmire premieres April 5 at 10P on IFC.
