The John Connor/Terminator Curse Strikes Again

10/16/2009 1:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

There are perks to playing John Connor in the "Terminator" franchise besides fame and fortune ... like DUI arrests, trips to rehab and expletive-filled tirades.

John Connor Curse
The DUI bust of "Sarah Connor Chronicles" star Thomas Dekker is just the latest in a series of bad luck incidents to befall an actor playing John Connor.

After Edward Furlong starred as Connor in "T-2", the young actor was arrested for DUI, went in and out of rehab ... and just last month got a temporary restraining order filed against him by his estranged wife.

And when Christian Bale took the role of JC in "Terminator Salvation," an audio tape surfaced of his on-set F-bomb rant towards a crew member.

"Terminator 3" star Nick Stahl has so far eluded the hex, but he better be careful because the Connor curse ... will be back.

I'm starting to believe that everything does happen for a reason. No coincidences, only the secret of life hidden.

AHHHH! Truer words were never spoken. Especially for us drunks! Don't know the other guy, but Edward Furlong has the potential to be an absolutely amazing actor & he is WASTING his opportunity. Anybody who saw 'American History X' knows. Hate to hear this!

Bale did okay. His anger thing got blown up but it wasn't a big deal. Any director would love to work with him.

Must be a slow day for you to consider this worth posting. And including Christian Bale in your posting along with those other two morons just makes you even bigger idiots.

Sometimes I feel logging onto your sight just means I have lowered expectations......

Not exactly a curse. That would be a more accurate word if they all died.
