‘The Predator’: Jake Busey Reveals His Character’s Connection To Previous Films

Jake-Busey-Predator
When news broke that Jake Busey has joined the cast of director Shane Black’s The Predator, fans immediately being speculating that the role could possibly be related to the character portrayed by the actor’s father, Gary Busey, in Predator 2. It appears those fans were correct as Busey recently confirmed to The Red Booth that he will be playing the son of secret government agent Peter Keyes.

Busey revealed his character’s ties to the previous film while discussing how he was offered the role by Shane Black:

“[Shane Black] called me and he said, ‘Hey, do you wana 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’s [the] son [of the character] that he played.”

Busey also added that his character will be a scientist.

Top 10 Movie Trailers From This Summer That Will Fire You Up

TrailersEvery year, an avalanche of trailers, teasers, TV spots flood the Internet, trying to grab the attention of busy and overstimulated audiences. It’s gotten to the point where now, trailers are such a commodity, that the trailers themselves have teasers. There’s a reason: trailers, when they’re good, can be an artform all their own.

I love trailers, being the guy who is always rushing his friends and family to the theater early “so we don’t miss the previews.” Every summer, I make a YouTube playlist of my favorites that acts as my own personal radio station because frankly, sometimes, I vibe more to how the trailer is cut than the music in it or, in bad cases, the movies themselves when I finally catch them on-screen. It’s gotten to the point that I imagine and dream in a trailer format, with music setting the pace for a smash-cut of scenes that I want to write or just enjoy the fantasy of.

If you love a good trailer like I love a good trailer, this list is for you. Here’s what I consider the top 10 trailers for the summer 2017. Click Next to start!
