Jake’s name should be very familiar to Predator fans! Jake’s father, Gary Busey, appeared in Predator 2 as Agent Keyes. Jake himself is no stranger to science-fiction having appeared in Starship Troopers.

    I love how people go like "There is gonna be a connection!!!". Sure, there is a possibility, but i don't think so.

    Shane shot a movie with Busey in 2016 and they are in contact since then, writing each other on Facebook and stuff. So his casting is probably because of that connection and his role will probably be small, and not because he's playing the son of Peter Keyes.

    That would be fun though, but unlikely.

    I hope Black and Dekker are above this.

    I'm sure they won't... drill the point home. Sorry, I'll get my coat.

    I think its hilarious that Jake Busey is in the movie... I'm leaning towards a flashback on a videotape from with him AS Keyes rather than "son of Keyes" ... (though I guess all character motivation is right there for him to follow in Keyes's footsteps).

    If they go down "son of Keyes" route - those are epic shoes to fill. Still - Black and Decker (I just can't take that seriously, I'm sorry) are smart writers both - they can make the dialogue zing which is what you need for Keyes. "The lions. The tigers. Oh, my." (I wonder as I type if Gary Busey just improved "oh, my").

    Difficult one of its son of Keyes - because the temptation will be to have him as "more of Keyes". Would we be disappointed if son of Keyes was a quiet, studious Dana Sculley type of investigator looking into the scientific side of things?

    The temptation is "more Keyes" right? But we've already had Keyes and as I say above - big shoes to fill.

    Ahhh.... speculation. We love it, hey.

    This is the most exciting casting news I've heard since Benicio was first mooted. Not only do I like Jake (OK, he's been cast in some appalling films over the years, but he's also played the single most memorable space marine outside of Aliens, Ace Levy), it also hints that perhaps we'll be seeing OWLF again, which I'd love.

    I assume by "mysterious role" they actually mean he'll be following in his father's footsteps from Pred 2. Ehhh it'll be cool to see him in it, but i hope he isn't actually related in any way to Keyes, despite the look.

    I'm looking forward to seeing Holbrook and Trevante Rhodes the most. I finally saw Logan yesterday and it was amazing. Holbrook was great and fun to watch.
    I saw it too, I walked out of the theater to hear my wife say that was one of the best movies I've seen in a longtime! I was like floored by her opinion of the movie, she's not big on comic book movies.

    I haven't seen Trevante in anything yet, but Boyd hands down is a great actor and has been good in everything I've seen him in

    I think it would be interesting for him to play Keyes's son, but I doubt that's the part he's playing. But then again Black did say this was a sequel to Predator 2 as well.


    As Valaqueen said, it'd be really jarring for him to show up playing a character that ISNT related to Keyes

    True, but it doesn't mean that's there's a connection to the characters.

    To honest, I hope I'm wrong because I love the idea of OWLF coming back.

    Hope they get Michael Biehn in this movie too.
    Let him join the elite group of actors who have gotten wrecked by an Alien, a Predator, and a Terminator? I'm all for it.

    Wasn't Jake also in The Frighteners? I remember him being great in that. Plus, Starship Troopers. And Contact.

    He and his father look so alike it would be really jarring if their fictional characters weren't related.
    He was great in the Frighteners, and Identity.

    Great news! I think Shane Black likes things in Predator 2
    He brought Mr Busey to this movie.
    Also the idea of P2 of a team who try to catch The Predator just with a more advenced and experienced team.

    Maybe Holdbrook and Rodes plays Duch and Harrigan's sons. 8)

    I hope he plays Keyes' son but I have a feeling he will play a character with 1 or 2 lines and be a small nod to fans of the series. I'm imagining Sterling K. Brown being the head of some government agents, Keyes acts as his right hand man just like Garber in P2, then Brown dies leaving Keyes to head the unit in the sequel.
