A young actor noted for his intense, older-than-his-years demeanor, Edward Furlong was 12 years old when he was picked for the role of John Connor in Terminator 2: Judgement Day (1991). Discovered in a Boys Club in his native Pasadena, California, Furlong shot to stardom with his film debut, managing to impress both critics and audiences with his ability to hold his own against Arnold Schwarzenegger. Despite this auspicious breakthrough, Furlong's subsequent films, though generally well-received by the critics, went virtually unseen by audiences. Such was the case with American Heart, in which Furlong gave an affecting performance as the son of a hardened ex-con (Jeff Bridges) (1993); Little Odessa (1994), in which he played the younger brother of a hitman for the Russian Mafia (Tim Roth); and The Grass Harp, a touching adaptation of Truman Capote's novel about a young orphan (Furlong) who comes of age in the company of some eccentric relatives.Furlong gave another strong performance in Barbet Schroeder's Before and After (1996), playing a young man accused of murdering his girlfriend. Unfortunately, as with many of his previous films, the favorable critical response it received failed to translate to commercial success. It was not until John Waters cast Furlong as the titular hero of Pecker two years later that his career began to rebound; one of Waters' most popular films to date, it allowed Furlong to demonstrate his ability to play quirky satire as well as serious drama. He earned additional acclaim later that year for his portrayal of the impressionable younger brother of a neo-Nazi (Edward Norton) in American History X; combined with the success of his role in Pecker, the film seemed to point the way toward steady work for Furlong in the future. Furlong would spend the next several years playing roles in movies like The Crow: Wicked Prayer and The Green Hornet. He made a couple of television appearances in series like Perception and The Glades in 2012, before returning to direct-to-DVD fare like Assault on Wall Street and The Zombie King (co-starring Corey Feldman).Although Furlong's acting career has been varied, anyone familiar with Japanese pop culture will know that thanks to his love of music, Furlong has enjoyed huge success in Japan. Following the Japanese release of his first album, Hold on Tight, he garnered a reputation as one of the country's most popular singers.

John Connor says: We're not gonna make it, are we? Humans, I mean.

The Terminator says: It's in your nature to destroy yourselves.

John Connor says: Yeah major drag, Huh?

John Connor says: We got Skynet by the balls now don't we.

John Connor says: We're not going to make it. Humans, I mean.

The Terminator says: It's in your nature to destroy yourselves.

Danny Vinyard says: Hate is baggage. Life's too short to be pissed off all the time. It's just not worth it.

Todd Voight says: John, Come on, get your ass inside, do as your mother tells you.

John Connor says: She's not my mother, Todd.

John Connor says: Jesus, you were gonna kill that guy!

The Terminator says: Of course. I'm a Terminator.

John Connor says: You gotta listen the way people talk: you don't say "affirmitive", or some shit like that, you say "no problemo". And if someone comes up to with an attitude you say "eat me", and if you wanna shine them on it: "Hasta la vista baby".

John Connor says: You gotta listen the way people talk: you don't say 'affirmitive', or some shit like that, you say 'no problemo'. And if someone comes up to with an attitude you say 'eat me', and if you wanna shine them on it: 'Hasta la vista baby'.

Danny Vinyard says: So I guess this is where I tell you what I learned - my conclusion, right? Well, my conclusion is: Hate is baggage. Life's too short to be pissed off all the time. It's just not worth it. Derek says it's always good to end a paper with a quote. He says someone else has already said it best. So if you can't top it, steal from them and go out strong. So I picked a guy I thought you'd like. 'We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory will swell when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.'

Danny Vinyard says: I'm sorry, Derek. I'm sorry that happened to you.

Derek Vinyard says: I'm not. I'm lucky. I feel lucky because it's wrong, Danny. It's wrong and it was eating me up, it was going to kill me. And I kept asking myself all the time, how did I buy into this shit? It was because I was pissed off, and nothing I ever did ever took that feeling away. I killed two guys, Danny, I killed them. And it didn't make me feel any different. It just got me more lost and I'm tired of being pissed off, Danny. I'm just tired of it.

John Connor says: It's definitely you.

Danny Vinyard says: Hate is baggage. Life's too short to be pissed off all the time. It's just not worth it.

Danny Vinyard says: We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory will swell when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.
