Though he was seen earlier this year in Hotel Artemis, Sterling K. Brown is best known for his work in the critically acclaimed (and universally beloved) NBC series This Is Us. With The Predator, however, Brown takes on an entirely different challenge, and having director Shane Black (Iron Man 3) at the helm is a good thing.
“I think he recognizes the script is a blueprint and we need to hit certain marks to inform the audience of certain things and to build the story to drive the plot,” said Brown. “But then he lets and encourages, almost demands that the actors break from the script and do what they feel is authentic at the moment. So it’s a combination between these two things – this wonderful railroad track that he has already laid out for us and the encouragement to play within the frame of those railroad tracks.”
