Though filming is currently underway for The Predator, Shane Black still has a few surprises left for us with the cast. According to The Hollywood Reporter, veteran science fiction actor Edward James Olmos has joined the cast of The Predator:
“Edward James Olmos is suiting up for The Predator, Shane Black’s reboot of 20th Century Fox’s sci-fi action franchise.
The movie is shooting in Vancouver with Boyd Holbrook leading a cast that also includes Room breakout Jacob Tremblay, Keegan-Michael Key, Trevante Rhodes, Thomas Jane, Alfie Allen, Yvonne Strahovski and Olivia Munn.”
Details about Olmos’ character were sparse. All Hollywood Reporter had to say on the matter was that Olmos would be playing a military character.
Edward James Olmos has a very extensive background in acting and he is certainly no stranger to science fiction. He’s perhaps best known to sci-fi fans for portraying Admiral William Adama in the reboot of Battlestar Galactica. He should also be familiar to fans of Sir Ridley Scott for his role as Gaff in Blade Runner, a role he will be reprising in the upcoming sequel Blade Runner 2049. He also recently appeared as Robert Gonzales in Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD.
