He’s got the clothes, the boots and the motorcycle… but hang about, that’s not Arnie?
Nope, it’s his doppelgänger son Joseph Baena quite literally following in his father’s footsteps, recreating the famous ‘bad to the bone’ scene from 'Terminator 2: Judgement Day’.
And frankly, it’s pretty spooky how much of a chip off the old block he is, despite that lack of dialogue delivered in a monotone Austrian accent.
Baena is the love child Schwarzenegger had with his housekeeper Mildred Baena, who had worked for the Schwarzeneggers for 20 years.
The discovery of the infidelity was what led to the split between Schwarzenegger and his wife, Maria Shriver, part of the Kennedy family.
It was years before Arnold found out that he had fathered a son with Mildred, telling the '60 Minutes’ programme that is was only when the boy 'started looking like me, that’s when I kind of got it. I put things together’.
He told Howard Stern: “He’s terrific and he totally understands the situation. So, it all has worked out… It’s a very tough situation for him. It’s a very tough situation for my kids. Very tough situation for my family. It was tough for everybody. But it has happened and now we have to figure it out, right?”
Joseph, who’s nearly 19, appears to have the strong and silent stuff nailed, this short having been directed by Ben Hess for entry into a short film competition.
And judging by the easy manner in which he snatched that shotgun, a future as an action star clearly beckons.
