Why do Terminators Look Like Arnold? Deleted Scene

Terminator 3 isn't fondly remembered by many, but if you picked up the DVD (when they were a thing) you might fondly remember this deleted scene. How was it that Arnold Schwarzenegger's distinct likeness was chosen for the T-800? This scene gives us the backstory on the killer robot's design. Of course, there's a reason that it was left on the cutting room floor. It's simply too hilarious for a movie that was not intended to be a comedy. Even though I understand the rationale behind omitting it, I have to say that this is my favorite moment [not] from the movie, and made that DVD purchase worthwhile. Yes ... I owned the Terminator 3 DVD. It's still better than Terminator: Salvation.
