Forget politics, Arnold Schwarzenegger is back to acting, and he Tweeted the picture to prove it.

The former California governor, 64 is filming "The Last Stand," in which he plays a dishonored sheriff. In the photo, he poses with co-stars Jamie Alexander, Luis Guzman, and "Jackass" star Johnny Knoxville.

According to CinemaBlend, Schwarzenegger plays a bordertown lawman and former LAPD cop who finds out a drug kingpin has escaped the FBI and will be heading through Arnold's town on his way to Mexico. "Last Stand" indeed. The last town on earth you'd want to wind through when you're on the lam is a town run by the Governator. The movie won't come out till 2013, but Arnold will have an even bigger film in theaters by that time. He's expanding his cameo role from the first "Expendables" and will appear with Sylvester Stallone and crew in "Expendables 2," due out next August.

It's a good time to keep his head down and concentrate on movie-making. The headlines about Schwarzenegger's divorce and the son he had with an employee while married to Maria Shriver have died down a little. Although that son stirred things up a bit on Halloween when he dressed as Conan the Barbarian, the character his dad played in 1982. Kids.
