Posted by on’s film writer, Matt Singer, is the biggest Arnold Schwarzenegger fan on the planet. He blogs any time any news about Schwarzenegger’s return to acting, no matter how flimsy or improbable, hits the Internet.

We’re inching ever closer to a full-on return to acting by Governator Arnold Schwarzenegger (has anyone called him the Cheaternator yet? Am I the first? I’m copyrighting it right now). Last month, Schwarzen-Watch told you that Arnold’s first film back would be the revisionist Western “The Last Stand” from director Kim Ji-woon, a guy who, as the director of the badass Korean flick “The Good The Bad The Weird,” knows a thing or two about revisionist Westerns.

Now we’ve got word from the Valencia County News Bulletin, that the film has a firmer start date and shooting location: October in Belen, New Mexico. The News Bulletin also provides a slightly more detailed plot synopsis for the film:

“‘The Last Stand’ is about convicts who are making their way to the Mexican border through New Mexico after escaping a prison in Las Vegas, Nev. They steal a car worth $5 million that reaches a top speed of 250 mph. The only thing standing between the convicts and their freedom is the border town sheriff, portrayed by Schwarzenegger.”

The Sheriffanator! Admittedly, that one doesn’t have quite the same ring as The Cheatenator.

Oh and if you live in the area, or you’re just planning a pilgrimage to Belen in October to witness Schwarzenegger’s glorious reemergence in person, look for the crew around Becker Avenue between First and Fifth Street. Not that I would, y’know, ever think of doing something like that. That would be totally stupid and lame. Now if you’ll excuse me I need to go see how much October flights to Central New Mexico cost.

Do you think Arnold still has what it takes to be an action star? Tell us in the comments below, or on Facebook and Twitter.

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
