It’s been a good month for Edward James Olmos! First, he revealed that he is returning as the legendary Gaff in Blade Runner 2049. Now, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that he will play a military character in The Predator!
Olmos is the second big name to be added to the film since principal photograph began in Vancouver on February 20th. This announcement follows the addition of Chuck/Dexter star Yvonne Strahovski joining the cast earlier this month. The film was star-studded before either announcement. Shane Black (who played Hawkins in the original film) is back this time pulling double duty in the writer’s and the director’s seat; and the movie will feature such talent as Alfie Allen, Boyd Holbrook, Thomas Jane, Keegan-Michael Key, Olivia Munn, Trevante Rhodes, and Jacob Tremblay.
