Ubisoft’s upcoming Far Cry 3 spinoff Blood Dragon is an homage to over-the-top 1980s action films. That means they needed ’80s star Michael Biehn to come in and voice the game’s hero, Rex Power Colt.

Biehn sat down for a behind-the-scenes chat with Ubisoft about working on the game. The Terminator actor revealed that he doesn’t play games and is only involved with this project for the paycheck.
