'Terminator' Star

The Superhuman Tax Lien

EXCLUSIVE

0118_Robert-Patrick_tmz
It's judgment day for "Terminator 2" mega-villain Robert Patrick ... 'cause the State of CA says he needs to cough up almost $170,000 in back taxes ... OR ELSE.

Patrick -- best known as Arnold Schwarzenegger's nemesis T-1000 -- was slapped with a tax lien earlier this year ... claiming he and his wife didn't pay all their taxes for the years 2007, 2008 and 2009 .... to the tune of $168,338.79.

Makes sense considering from 2007 to 2009 Patrick was raking it in -- he did 69 episodes of "The Unit" and starred in films like "The Men Who Stare at Goats", "Bridge to Terabithia", and "Balls of Fury."

Of course none of that compares to shooting down an elevator shaft as liquid metal ...



A rep for Patrick tells TMZ ... the lien is a result of his ex-business manager mismanaging his money -- and the actor is planning to pay the lien ASAP.

Maybe he can turn himself into a couple of $100 bill printing plates.

He's related to the lead singer of Filter and I'm pretty sure the guy from the Walking Dead. He shouldn't have a problem finding the dough.

Big deal. What a non-story. $170K is a lot to me but one episode of a TV show to him. Chump change.

Oh, please. $170K is nothing. Some folks owe a million or more.

Patrick's newest venture, "Last Resort" just wrapped its series finally last night. Patrick's a character actor and from my point of view is rarely out of work.
.
I doubt Patrick to be a deadbeat on taxes...or anything else.

Robert also starred in The Marine. He rocked that sh$t! Saw it on FX the other night. He was great!

Leave the man alone. He's busy right now. Just finished Last Resort, Gangster Squad and like three more movies. He's also working in True Blood.

I love him, and judging by the unusual amount of positive comments here, I'd say most people do!
