Los Angeles, Jan 01 (Agencies): Hollywood action icon Arnold Schwarzenegger is considering to return to the big screen after he steps down as the Governor of California next week.

The 'Terminator' star took a break from films to pursue a career in politics and has been in charge of the state of California since 2003. Incoming Democrat Jerry Brown would succeed Schwarzenegger, sparking speculation over his next move, Variety magazine reported.

Schwarzenegger, who filmed short cameo roles for 'Terminator Salvation' and 'The Expendables' during his stint as governor found it easy to switch gears to acting but could not officially disclose his plans till his term expired.

"It is like bicycling, or like skiing. You get on it and you feel like there is no time lapse there at all... The list is a long list of things I can do, but nothing I can concentrate on until I am literally, totally out of office."

"For me the joy of life is not to know, and you get into it and you kind of figure it out. I love that. I don't like safety nets. I am not a believer in that... So you go in there with an open mind and you have to learn very quickly," said the 63-year-old star.

Meanwhile, Schwarzenegger shot down rumours that he is poised to take over the post of Chief of the Motion Picture Association of America, adding,"No one has come up to me about that."
