Yelchin Plays Post-Apocalyptic Legend in T4

The now untitled "Terminator 4" will see the return of a pivotal character in the Terminator mythology. Anton Yelchin (recently known for his role in "Charlie Bartlett") is in talks to play a teenage version of the character Kyle Reese.

Kyle Reese is the man sent back in time to save Sarah Conner from a Terminator sent to kill her in the first movie. Reese also ends up impregnating Conner who gives birth to John Conner, the future savior of the world. John Conner will be played Christian Bale in the fourth film. Kyle Reese was played by Michael Biehn.

While I'm not too happy about the coming of another Terminator film, especially one without Arnold, I can't say I actually hate the ideas that are being put on the table. What they're making out of it sounds pretty cool so far. But with director McG at the bat... Lets just say I'm less than enthusiastic.
