Get ready to get pumped as we rank Arnold Schwarzenegger’s all-time greatest characters. Born in 1947, the Austrian-American actor and former California governor got his first major role as the muscle-bound Hercules in the 1969 spoof Hercules in New York. The rest, as they say, is history.
From Conan to the Terminator, Major Alan “Dutch” Schaefer in Predator to Colonel John Matrix in Commando, this list of Arnold Schwarzenegger characters features some of the roughest, toughest, and downright coolest characters in film history. But as Detective John Kimble in Kindergarten Cop and Julius Benedict in Twins can attest, it also features some of the funniest. Which Arnold Schwarzenegger character is your all-time favorite?
