Terminator's voice actor in Mortal Kombat 11 was hand-picked by Arnold Schwarzenegger

Who knows Arnold's voice better than Arnold?

While the Terminator in Mortal Kombat 11 bares the likeness of Arnold Schwarzenegger, the character is not being voiced by Arnold. That might come as a surprise to many, since the voice we've heard in the trailers so far seems to be spot-on. Turns out the man himself had some say in that, as Schwarzenegger was the one who picked the voice actor to fill his shoes.

Now why isn't Arnold providing the voice for this cameo? Unfortunately we don't have any information on that. It does seem strange that they were able to get his likeness, but couldn't nail down the voice. At least who we do get knows how to do a truly impressive impersonation.


But Arnold is the one person on the world who hears his voice differently....

This is good. Hopefully it leads to the voice acting being more similar to Arnold's real voice, and less like the parody we all recognize as his voice.

It would be horrible playing a video game that had hours of an impressionist voice, doing the voice we associate with Arnold instead of Arnold's real voice.
