 Finding the Lost Predators, An Interview with Predator 2's Boar Predator (aka Wyatt Weed)! – AvPGalaxy Podcast #105

Wyatt talks working with Predator alumni Steve Wang and Brian Simpson, and some stories they shared of their time working on the Predator, how Wyatt became involved with Predator 2, his experiences inside the suit and nearly passing out on set, being pranked by Kevin Peter Hall, plenty of sci-fi tangents and more!

At one point RidgeTop mentions a replica Boar mask made by Bad Blood Designs and a NECA Boar figure that Wyatt owns. He’d actually shown us these prior to the recording starting so wasn’t actually referenced in the episode up until that point.

You can find out more about Wyatt by checking out his wife’s Facebook page So I Married a Predator, popping on Wyatt’s website, or heading on over to YouTube to watch Wyatt’s films.

    Very insightful and entertaining, Wyatt surely has loads of cool stories to tell and it was fun listening to him. Subscribed to your podcast channel on spotify, keep up the good work lads.

    Outstanding interview, who'd thought a costume extra would possess the attention to detail of a movie Director? Seriously Wyatt Weed's commentary on his career, movies and trends of the time matches that of James Cameron's ALIENS director commentary.

    While not a Star Wars fan I found it funny that Wyatt stumbled upon a star wars set (in the us rather than the uk), only to be told by a stage hand it was for an energizer bunny commercial (1994 below). Ironically while doing stunts for The Guyver with a washed up Mark "Luke Skywalker" Hamill (in Guyver) in the set next door. Hamill had probably wrote off Star Wars as old hat by that point, not realising the cgi Special Editions were being re-done. Or he'd be asked to return, unironically, after sending up star wars in jay and silent bob films.



    The Jean Claude Van Damme (Dumbee) accent impression and stunt suit story was hilarious.

    Not sure why the "flying stealth V  plane wing walk" action sequence in his PREDATOR idea was attributed to MARVEL when it was done in 1994's Arnold Schwarzenegger's True Lies and bookended in ALIEN Covenant (although Weed said he hadn't watched that).

    Yeah we need a back to basics reboot for ALIENS and PREDATOR. While we need a futuristic avp with a good story and script.

    Great podcast guys!

    I loved Wyatt Weed's story of Schwarzenegger and the frogs, even though it was second-hand information. It was fun to hear Wyatt's crazy Predator pitch too. I think the time period piece is spot-on, Predator during World War II? Oh yeah!!  but it strays way too far from the back to basics approach that this franchise desperately needs imo with the Predator translation device, the Pregnant Predator, etc. etc.  Wyatt does a pretty damn good Arnold impression too!   :D

    I wish you guys asked him if he ever wondered why the Boar was one of the few Lost Predators that was unarmed.  An Engineer perhaps?

    Wyatt, if you're reading this, the Elder was named Grayback in the script, and there was definitely a Predator 2 red-carpet premiere at the Avco Theater. You can find some pictures here:
