"The guy's an actor -- he's reading a script! When they tell you not to panic, that's when you run!" - Jackson Curtis

Arnold Schwarzenegger was the Governor of California at the time of the earthquake disaster of Los Angeles. He was played by Lyndall Grant.


Though his ultimate fate is unknown, it is highly possible that he perished in Sacramento as he was assuring the public in a speech that nothing would happen and that they were safe. When the earthquake disaster took place, he fell down to the floor as the news station was still broadcasting. 


  • In reality, Schwarzenegger's full term ended in 2011.
  • As shown on TV, he does NOT appear to resemble Arnold Schwarzenegger himself, but it's evidenced by his Austrian accent and being called an "actor".
