Roland morphs into Arnold

Roland morphs into Arnold

Steve Stiefel

If you’re a wordy sort, you may have noticed that “Roland” is an anagram for “Arnold.” It should come as no surprise to learn, then, that fellow Austrian bodybuilder Roland Kickinger is transforming himself into Arnold Schwarzenegger for an A & E biopic on the governor’s life.

“I’ve been hired to play Arnold during his bodybuilding days. I’ve been training twice a day and dieting to get in shape.” Kickinger says he also hopes to play the 21st-century incarnation of Schwarzenegger, as the film spans Arnold’s life from the early days, through his Olympia victories and Hollywood career, and up to his political triumph. At press time, the production schedule and title weren’t yet in place. We’ll keep you posted.
