Unphased by Arnold's Legacy, New 'Conan' Jason Momoa Embraces R-Rated Savagery

San Francisco might be Jason Momoa’s favorite city, but don’t ask if he’s running for governor. The tall, bronze-skinned Honolulu native, who stars in Marcus Nispel’s new Conan the Barbarian, is well aware that comparisons to the screen’s most famous conquering Cimmerian, Arnold Schwarzenegger, are inevitable. And, thank you, he’s heard all the jokes.
 
Could he care less? Apparently not. He never sought Arnold’s blessing, nor does he seem concerned whether Schwarzenegger enjoys the movie. If he does, great. If not, Momoa won’t be quitting the business.
