Arnie gives Xfm’s Jon Holmes a raw deal

Xfm breakfast presenter Jon Holmes has broadcast an interview with actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, which didn’t exactly go according to plan.

Jon spent six minutes on-air playing clips of the unsuccessful interview, explaining Arnie ignored him before and during the interview by reading a book.

“He was so engrossed in his book that he didn’t even acknowledge we were there,” said Jon. “I wanted to ask him about his rivalry with Stallone but we nothing from him, he just looked at his book.”

Jon was trying not to get the usual “pre-prepared film guff that you see in every interview”.

During the segment this morning, Jon ended up playing clips of his voice at a higher pitch to make him sound like a chipmonk.

“In short, Arnold Schwarzenegger is the world’s most boring interviewee,” he said.
