It seems that some point along the way, Jake Busey was cast in The Predator. I always thought that the whole FBI vs. Predator thing was cool and now it’s kind of confirmed this will be making a return for the new sequel.
In a recent interview with The Red Booth, Jake confirmed that the character he was playing was indeed the son of Peter Keyes. So a real life tie-in.
“He [Shane Black] called me and he said “hey, you wanna do this movie? We don’t have money for you but it’ll be a fun thing to come play and be your father’s son. And so as much as I have followed in my Dad’s footsteps career-wise, this is like really following in his footsteps by playing a character who is the son of the character he played. And I don’t think there would be any other forum where I would do that. I think this is the one thing.”
Of course, the real Keyes was kind of cut down to size and won’t be attending. But did what about Adam Baldwin? Did you know the Brothers Strause wanted him to return in AVP 2, but he turned it down?
