He not have made an impressive action blockbuster. Not like the comic book, but still a great cinema experience.
And back in 1991, I don't think Cameron wanted DiCaprio for the lead. Biehn would have been involved in some way, I am sure of it. Maybe not the lead, but the villain.
Biehn made a good villain in The Abyss. The guy works really well with Cameron.
