Trevante Rhodes Talks The Predator, Reveals Character Name

The Predator’s Trevante Rhodes came away from the 2017 Oscar’s with a Best Picture award now associated with himself for Moonlight. In a new interview with Yahoo talking about the show, Rhodes has talked a little about the upcoming Shane Black Predator sequel, The Predator:

“Back on The Predator set, Black and the rest of the cast and crew gave him a brief but touching hero’s welcome. “It was hugs and everybody going, ‘We’re so happy for you,’ and then we were back to business. You gotta get back to work!” Naturally, they couldn’t resist hitting him up for firsthand intel too. “I feel like you can’t say congratulations without also saying, ‘What happened up there?’” Rhodes said, laughing. “That’s going to be the conversation for the rest of the year.”

 Trevante Rhodes Talks The Predator, Reveals Character Name

Trevante Rhodes reveals his character name in a new interview with Yahoo.

Rhodes also revealed that he’s a little squeamish, having had only been able to bring himself to watch the first Predator for many years. As explained below, it wasn’t until he was cast in The Predator that he caught up with the series.

“One thing that Rhodes has kept hidden until now is that he was a bit of a scaredy-cat as a young kid. That’s why he held off on watching the entire Predator series until he was cast in The Predator. “I was really squeamish growing up — not too fond of blood and guts,” he admitted. “I saw the first one when I was young, and liked it, but I was like, ‘I can’t watch any more of these!’” Now he’s facing those childhood fears by playing Nebraska Williams, a former Marine who enlists in a special Predator-hunting operation headed up by his good friend Quinn McKenna (played by Logan‘s Boyd Holbrook). “We form a bit of a motley crew,” Rhodes says, adding that Black is putting his own distinct imprint on the franchise. “It’s what you expect a Shane Black move to be, set in the world of the Predator.”

Rhodes has also revealed the name of his character as Nebraska Williams and that his character is part of a specialized team setting out to track down Predators.

    In regards to the vet casting, isn't Thomas Jane confirmed to be in this? Or is still just rumoured at this point? I think he would be a great get for this movie especially with the way Black uses vets in his movies. They are almost always scene stealers.
    There's a podcast which is shared on this site where he said he was in Vancouver filming The Predator

    I accepted Rhodes and Holdbrook as the lead In this Lethal Predator Weapon movie.But i miss some veteran actors from the 80-90's which could bring back the feeling of the era.
    Shane Black likes to have actors like Val Kilmer, Kim Basinger, Russel Crowe in his movies.

    I hope we will see a few familiar face or Arnold, Danny Glover, Adam Baldwin for a cameo at least. 8)

    Can anyone give a brief description of the supposed leaked script? Is the movie actually set mainly in the suburbs? Does the script lean towards horror, action, or a thriller? Or a blend of all 3? Whats this about spider predators? I thought It was confirmed the movie would have just 2 predators one normal version then the super 12 foot predator ? Thanks
    Now you're saying 12ft, the rumor of the leaked script is in other threads on here, 10ft Predator was the rumor

    So you’re working on The Predator right now. What can you say about this one?
    I don’t know how familiar you are with Shane Black’s work, but he’s really stylish and has a very unique method of telling stories—kind of a nod to the old action, comedy, buddy-buddy films. If you imagine that tone within the world of Predator, it’s a special fit. It’s everything I thought it could be, and then some, because Shane is a mastermind. Each day, we have a new experience putting our heads together and finding ways to stretch the script and push the boundaries. It’ll be a really cool experience for fans of the Predator series and fans of Shane Black. He had a part in writing the original film and he was in the original film, so he’s part of this franchise. It means a lot to him and I’m lucky to be involved.

    Yeah but at least this time we don't have to hear the obligatory "What the hell was that thing!?" Or get another group of clueless humans trying to piece together the simple idea that they're being hunted. At least we'll get characters that are armed and ready from the beginning.

    Haven't seen Moonlight yet, but he is getting high praise for his acting in the film so I'm perfectly fine with this casting!

    Also: I hope this means that 50 Cent won't be in this film. Could have been eyed for the same role.
    had to be...look how much theyy favor each other...they could be related...this guy can act tho...and he's a fresh face

    Great choice...handsome, strong, totally has the look of a bad ass...good young actor too...im certain he will be a fierce warrior and prove a worthy trophy for the predator

    "While Holbrook does not have the star power Del Toro has, Fox is planning on beefing up the supporting cast."

    Ahh yes, remember that statement when Holbrook was cast? If Trevante Who and Olivia What is their idea of a beefed up supporting cast, we're in trouble. I don't doubt that any of these people are talented, Trevante was terrific in Moonlight, but this is a bad portent.

    Ben Affleck, Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Tom Hardy, Mark Ruffalo...to Boyd and Trevante. Wonderful! I mean at least we're getting cast news, I guess? Couldn't even get Michael B. Jordan?Bro...it wouldnt feel very much like a "Predator" movimovie with those A-listers runnin around...Trevante not only looks the part of a bad ass but he's a fresh new face and a good actor...im certain he will be a fierce prey and worthy trophy for the predator

    More like 1990 but no predator film has ever been THIS stupid. Spider- predators, really? The simple idea of a team hunting predators is good enough for me, just stick with that. Hunters finally become the hunted seems like a logical next step.

    And Olivia Munn's character name is Casey Bracket. So the leaked script is true.... we're in for deep $hit people.

    Don't the fans get used to the taste of sh*t since 2004 ?

    ‘Moonlight’ Star Trevante Rhodes on His Crazy Oscars Night and Tackling ‘The Predator’

    Rhodes says he’s been mercifully removed from all the intensive post-telecast analysis. That’s in large part due to the fact that he left L.A. in the early morning hours after the ceremony, boarding a Vancouver-bound plane at 4:30 a.m. to continue shooting his next movie, The Predator, director Shane Black’s sequel to the 1980s action classic.

    Back on The Predator set, Black and the rest of the cast and crew gave him a brief but touching hero’s welcome. “It was hugs and everybody going, ‘We’re so happy for you,’ and then we were back to business. You gotta get back to work!” Naturally, they couldn’t resist hitting him up for firsthand intel too. “I feel like you can’t say congratulations without also saying, ‘What happened up there?'” Rhodes said, laughing. “That’s going to be the conversation for the rest of the year.”
