Yesterday we brought you an interview clip from Predators producer and director Robert Rodriguez and Nimrod Antal. It explained a lot about the unconventional casting and story changes they made to set the reboot apart from the original and today on the film’s official website they debuted some behind the scenes footage featuring Topher Grace as his character Edwin. He’s one of the many actors we were surprised to see pop up in this movie because quite frankly, who’s afraid of Eric Foreman? Check out the video to see how he fits in with the rest of the group…
In Predators, Royce is the central character and a military trained mercenary. He reluctantly leads a group of elite warriors who have been brought together on an alien planet… as prey. With the exception of a disgraced physician, they are all cold-blooded killers mercenaries, Yakuza, convicts, death squad members human “predators” that are now being systemically hunted and eliminated by a new breed of alien creatures.
Oh snap! It looks like Edwin is a medical doctor who has some serious skeletons in his closet (literally). Out of the wild bunch of killers Rodriguez suggests that he might be the deadliest of them all. Isn’t that how it always goes? The guy who looks the most unassuming and wears glasses is always a serial killer at heart in these types of films. Hopefully, Grace’s attempt at playing the bad guy is a lot better than what we saw in Spider-Man 3 because that performance was a joke.
What do you think of Grace as Edwin? Do you think he’ll be the most dangerous out of the group?
