The movie joke showing Schwarzenegger starring in King Lear can be traced to Schwarzenegger's story about how he got his first film role Hercules. They asked him if he had ever acted before and he told them he had been a great Shakespearean actor back in Austria, which turned out to be completely made up.

(Also, he briefly played a Terminator style Hamlet in The Last Action Hero.)
