Eight Things You May Not Know About The Terminator

With the thirtieth anniversary of James Cameron's The Terminator now here, some people are looking back to the earliest days of the franchise. In addition to this excellent, early celebration of the film's anniversary over the summer, here are another eight facts about Cameron's tale of a cyborg assassin wreaking havoc. 

For now, I'll leave you with number six on the list, a dubious fact regarding casting. Disgraced former NFL player O.J. Simpson was considered for the title role. At the time, Simpson had a fair amount of success as an actor, having appeared in Roots, The Towering Inferno, among other movies. As the story goes, the studio suggested O.J. Simpson's name to James Cameron as a possibility for the role. Ironically, Cameron felt that no one would believe O.J. as a killer.
