‘Terminator’ actor Michael Biehn talks voicing Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon’s hero

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.

Check out the hilarious clip below and watch out for language that isn’t safe for work:
