From a discussion at lunch today.
"You know, Arnold Schwarzenegger is a surprisingly good actor, as long as he stays within his range. When he's either playing Terminator-style characters, or doing comedy, he's really very good. But when he does anything else, he's terrible."
"Yeah, I know what you mean. I saw him trying to play the Governer of California, and he was terrible; totally unconvincing in the role".
"Well, he has a narrow range; it's the casting that was bad, not the actor; blame the casting director".
"I guess that's what happens when the casting director's job is done by committee"
