Anyways, he said he worked on predator (actually he's the one who designed the mask) and he said that the original script had a TINY alien inside the predator costume (like in independence day). Stout, at the time, thought this was a brilliant moral idea (that Arnold beats up this helpless thing) and showed it to the director. Stout congratulated the director on an excellent script. However, the director threw the script back at him and said "Whoah, that's gotta go. We can't have Arnold beating up a wimp!!" (The director hadn't seen the whole script) I think that's really great!
