Patrick Schwarzenegger discusses his work on The Boys Presents: Varsity in an interview with Variety promoting his upcoming show The Staircase. Schwarzenegger admits to showing his father images from the set and even reveals Arnold’s baffled reaction to the show, but he couldn’t confirm claims that he’s playing a character called Golden Boy.

It will be fascinating to watch how people react to The Boys spinoff program when it starts next year after Arnold Schwarzenegger reacted the way he did. While Arnold Schwarzenegger is not officially retired, his rate of production has dropped in recent years. Terminator: Dark Fate, his most recent feature film, was released in 2019.
