Early next year, director Shane Black brings one of the most iconic movie monsters back to the big screen with The Predator. One of those set to face the ultimate alien hunter in the movie will be the Emmy-winning Sterling K. Brown. Sitting down with Entertainment Weekly, the American Crime Story actor briefly touched on his character and the overall tone of the new movie.
"Shane has his whole take on it and it’s very different than the original ‘Predator’. It’s got a really wicked sense of humor to it, which I love about it. And it’s got a real camaraderie amongst the main characters that I think folks will be attracted to. That’s pretty much all I can say."
"I’m a huge fan of Predator and, of course, everybody loves Jesse the Body [Ventura] and Arnold [Schwarzenegger] and Carl Weathers and Bill Duke. My friends at Stanford used to tease me – being the dark-skinned African-American man that I am – they’d say, ‘Yo, man, you’re going to start getting all [those] Bill Duke roles when you get older.’ And I was like, ‘I don’t look anything like Bill Duke, you guys can kiss my ass.'"
"So then I booked this movie and I told them and they’re like, ‘Dude, do you even realize that you’re now Bill Duke???’ And I had to go tell them to kiss my ass all over again."
Starring Boyd Holbrook, Olivia Munn, Trevante Rhodes, Keegan-Michael Key, Thomas Jane, Jacob Tremblay, Yvonne Strahovski, Alfie Allen and Edward James Olmos, The Predator stalks into theaters on February 9th, 2018.
