Catch '6th Day' Stars in These Videos Too

"The 6th Day" opened Christmas weekend and is currently playing in theaters across Seoul. The science fiction, action movie stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, who returns home one day to find that a clone has taken his place. Also starring Tony Goldwyn and Robert Duvall, this movie features an excellent cast.

Here are three other movies in which these three actors have starred.

The Terminator (1984)

Directed by James Cameron. Starring Lance Henriksen, Michael Biehn, Bill Paxton, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Paul Winfield and Linda Hamilton.

Schwarzenegger achieved international fame through this science fiction cult classic in which he plays a cyborg. Originally, Schwarzennegger was intended for the role of the hero, but he talked director Cameron into casting him as the assassin.

As machines battle humans for dominance over a devestated earth, a cyborg (Schwarzennegger) is sent into the past to kill the mother (Hamilton) of the leader of the revolution against technology.

Ghost (1990)

Directed by Jerry Zucker. Starring Demi Moore, Whoopi Goldberg, Patrick Swayze and Tony Goldwyn.

Grandson of movie mogul Samuel Goldwyn of Samuel Goldwyn Productions, Tony Goldwyn's first major film was "Gaby: A True Story" (1987).

While "Ghost" is more famous for the romantic dialogue between Swayze and Moore, Goldwyn was unforgettable in his role as the villain. In "Ghost," he plays Swayze's best friend, who later betrays Swayze by having him murdered. In death, Swayze's spirit seeks to avenge his death while protecting his wife (Moore) from his former best friend.

Frustrated because he cannot contact his wife in the living world, he luckily discovers that Goldberg is the only person with whom he can have contact. After befriending Goldberg, he then persuades her to help his wife.

The Apostle (1997)

Directed by Robert Duvall. Starring Robert Duvall, Farrah Fawcett and Billy Bob Thornton.

Whether as a leading or supporting actor, Duvall can always be counted on to breathe life into a movie with the intensity of his character. In "The Apostle" Duvall plays Sonny Dewey, a Pentacostal preacher on a quest to save souls.

When Sonny's wife Jessie (Fawcett), leaves him for the young minister Horace (Todd Allen), Sonny takes revenge using a baseball bat and sends Horace into a coma. Sonny then fakes his own death and baptizes himself in a river, declaring himself reborn as "The Apostle." Sonny then heads for obscure parts of rural Louisiana where he establishes himself as a popular preacher while taking special care to avoid the law.
