He spent his childhood in Vienna, At the early age of 15 decided he wanted to become a bodybuilder. From that day on, Roland dedicated his life to becoming his very best. Roland went on to compete in the European National Bodybuilding Championships and won the title of "Mr. Austria".
In 1995, Roland travelled to the U.S.A arriving with only $500 and no place to stay. After a few short visits to California, and a one year stay in Florida, Kickinger decided to make the United States his home permanently. The following year all the hard work paid off when he joined the Professional ranks and was signed to represent the leader in health and fitness, Joe Weider.
Kickinger, who played Arnold Schwarzenegger in the 2005 film "See Arnold Run", discussed his role in the McG-directed film with Clinton News Record. "There's a very strong scene in the film where John Connor for the first time meets the Terminator, and he doesn't know if he's a good guy or a bad guy," said Kickinger.
"It's Arnold's character in the first Terminator. That's basically my role, but 20 years before, so it establishes how the Terminator [came] about."
