After months of rumors and auditions from seemingly every up-and-coming actor in Hollywood, the rebooted 'Terminator 5,' officially titled 'Terminator: Genesis,' finally found its Kyle Reese. Australian actor Jai Courtney landed the role, which will see him appearing alongside franchise star Arnold Schwarzenegger and 'Game of Thrones' breakout Emilia Clarke.
Though the roles of both John and Sarah Connor have been cast (with Jason Clarke and Emilia Clarke respectively, and of no relation), one of the biggest final puzzle pieces of the cast in the upcoming 'Terminator' reboot, 'Terminator: Genesis,' is who will play Kyle Reese, the man who traveled through time because he fell in love with a picture of Sarah Connor. Currently the role is between Boyd Holbrook and Jai Courtney.
The 'Terminator' reboot (now officially titled 'Terminator: Genesis') is moving forward quickly and is closing in on its two leads. Jason Clarke ('Zero Dark Thirty') is in talks to star as John Connor while 'Game of Thrones' star Emilia Clarke looks to have won the hotly-contested role of Sarah Connor.
