Billy Idol in T2?

MTV brought up some interesting trivia about Terminator 2.

Back when Cameron was figuring out what he wanted for the first “Terminator” sequel, Kramer walked into his office to look at the storyboards. “I was like, “Jim, these storyboards look just like Billy Idol!’” Kramer recalled. “And he was like, ‘Yeah, he was my first pick.’ But Billy had gotten into a motorcycle accident and broke his leg, so it didn’t work out, because he would have to be in lean running shape.”

That would’ve been weird to see, it would’ve dated the film even more (nothing against him) he definitely has the menace down, but Robert Patrick nailed that role.
