About 100 blogs today have reprinted the following quote from director McG (from the213.net interview: link), so I'll do it too:
"There's guys out there like Russell Crowe and Eric Bana, bring a good physicality, they do what they do, but I don't know if they're exactly right at the end of the day. (Smiles) Josh Brolin is a very exciting actor - we'll see."
The 2009 TERMINATOR film would be my single most anticiapted film of next year and I would be very happy if Josh Brolin got the part: he seems a good choice. I'm sure if McG is so willing to spill the beans about this, an announcement is not far off.
