Hollywood actor Arnold Schwarzenegger becomes the ‘chief action officer’ of Netflix and offers a sneak peek into all the action-packed films and shows to stream on the OTT platform in a fun promotional video shared by the streamer on Thursday.

Sporting a black suit, the action icon arrives at the Netflix headquarters and asks for “bigger” and better action titles as the video cuts to scenes from Chris Hemsworth’s Extraction 2 followed by Henry Cavill’s The Witcher. The video shows Schwarzenegger working out with a pair of dumbbells and then wielding his famous Conan the Barbarian sword. “Swords are cool,” the 75-year-old says.


“No one loves action as much as I do… That’s why I’ve accepted a big new job as Netflix’s chief action officer,” Schwarzenegger says in the video before introducing the upcoming Netflix action films and shows, including Jennifer Lopez’s Mother, Schwarzenegger’s maiden OTT series FUBAR and Gal Gadot-Ali Bhatt-starrer spy thriller Heart of Stone. The video also shows a glimpse of The Brother Sun starring Michelle Yeoh and Kevin Hart’s Lift.

“I’m working around the clock to bring you the biggest action on Earth,” Schwarzenegger says. “Nobody knows action like I do, and nobody hits like Netflix,” he concludes.

Netflix India shared the video on Instagram with the caption, “When @schwarzenegger, the Chief Action Officer himself says that it’s bigger and better, you best believe we are in for some extreme action! 😎 Buckle up, an action-packed watchlist is dropping cause #NobodyHitsLikeNetflix 💥👊”
