‘Celebrity Apprentice’: Arnold Schwarzenegger Replaces Donald Trump in First Teaser

Getting fired is going to be even more daunting as Arnold Schwarzenegger steps into Donald Trump’s shoes as the boss in NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice.”

In the first look at the new season, Schwarzenegger semi-reprises his “The Terminator” role as the promo pays homage to the iconic science-fiction franchise that made the former “Governator” a household name. His firing phrase is yet to be determined, however.

Celebrity Apprentice” will feature Laila Ali — daughter of the late boxing legend Muhammad Ali — Warren Buffett, Tyra Banks, Steve Ballmer, Jessica Alba, Boy George, Brooke Burke-Charvet, Eric Dickerson, Matt Iseman, Carrie Keagan, Carson Kressley, Lisa Leslie, Jon Lovitz, Vince Neil, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Kyle Richards, Chael Sonnen, Porsha Williams, Ricky Williams and Carnie Wilson.

Schwarzenegger last reprised his role as The Terminator in 2015’s “Terminator: Genysis” starring Emilia Clarke and Jai Courtney. He has played the T-800 Model 101 in four other Terminator movies — 1984’s “The Terminator,” 1991’s “Terminator 2: Judgement Day,” 2003’s “Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines” and 2009’s “Terminator Salvation.”

Schwarzenegger’s early bodybuilding years are getting the TV treatment. Schwarzenegger will also be starring in “Why We’re Killing Gunther,” written and directed by “Saturday Night Live” alum Taran Killam, who was recently cut from the upcoming season of the show.

The new season of “Celebrity Apprentice” will premiere in January 2017.
