American streaming platform Netflix has appointed actor Arnold Schwarzenegger as its new Chief Action Officer.

In a promo released by Netflix announcing their new CAO, Schwarzenegger rolls up to the streaming service’s headquarters, literally.

“No one loves action as much as I do,” Arnold says in the video, pulling up in an army tank. “That’s why I’ve accepted a big new job as Netflix’s Chief Action Officer.”

For someone who has starred in action movies for most of his career, this should be a smooth transition for the 75-year-old.

“Nobody knows action like Arnold Schwarzenegger,” Netflix said in a release earlier today (May 22).

“Arnold is working around the clock to bring you the most explosive series and films on earth! Get ready for a hard-hitting roller coaster ride as Netflix cranks its action slate into the next gear.”


The actor goes on to introduce some of Netflix’s hottest upcoming action movies and shows, including Extraction 2, starring Chris Hemsworth, a new season of The Witcher with Henry Cavill and Heart of Stone, a spy thriller with Gal Gadot.

Schwarzenegger will also make his live-action television series debut in Netflix series FUBAR on May 25. The spy-adventure television series was created by Nick Santora for the streaming platform.

In FUBAR, Schwarzenegger stars alongside Monica Barbaro as the two play a father and daughter duo who realise that they both secretly work for the CIA, turning an undercover mission all the more complicated.
