How is Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger killing time between budget negotiations? Vegas, baby!

Schwarzenegger said "Hasta la vista" to his day job for a few hours Wednesday, jetting off to Las Vegas to help friend Sylvester Stallone promote his the new action flick "The Expendables."

The governor makes a cameo appearance.

Schwarzenegger posted a video on Twitter Thursday showing him at a red-carpet event with Stallone the previous night. He also posted a picture of the two eating sushi.

Last week, Schwarzenegger attended the Hollywood premiere of "The Expendables" at Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles, where he was met by members of a state workers union upset over his furlough plan.

They held up signs reading: "State Workers Are Not Expendable."
