Sterling K Brown in negotiations to star in The Predator. Casting news continues as The Hollywood Reporter releases another exclusive article. Recently they revealed that Trevante Rhodes had joined The Predator’s ensemble cast and that Keegan-Michael Key was in talks to join as well.
“Sterling K. Brown — one of the stars of NBC’s buzzy ensemble drama This Is Us, who also won an Emmy for his work on FX’s The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story — is in negotiations to join the cast of The Predator, Twentieth Century Fox’s reboot of the sci-fi action franchise that will be directed by Shane Black.”
Sterling K. Brown is best known for his work on The People vs. O.J Simpson: American Crime Story and This Is Us but he will also be appearing alongside the likes of Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan and Martin Freeman in Marvel’s Black Panter.
Once again THR refer to The Predator as being set in the suburbs, something that Shane Black refuted in November of last year. The Hollywood Reporter does provide a small tidbit of information about Brown’s character, explaining that he would work for a government agency that jails Boyd Holbrook’s character:
“If a deal is sealed, Brown will play a government agent who jails Holbrook’s ex-Marine character, but later needs his help with the Predators.”
This new report also mentions that Keegan-Michael Key has joined the ensemble. If the negotiations work out with Sterling K Brown, he would add his talent to The Predator’s building award-winning ensemble cast.
