Trevante Rhodes has revealed the name of the character he will be playing in Shane Black's The Predator (Predator 4) next year! He was recently caught up with by Yahoo! after returning to the set, following his Best Picture award win at this year's Oscars (for Moonlight). During the interview, Trevante briefly touches on The Predator, being sure not to reveal any major plot spoilers, but did at least provide the name of his character:

One thing that Rhodes has kept hidden until now is that he was a bit of a scaredy-cat as a young kid. That’s why he held off on watching the entire Predator series until he was cast in The Predator. “I was really squeamish growing up — not too fond of blood and guts,” he admitted. “I saw the first one when I was young, and liked it, but I was like, ‘I can’t watch any more of these!'” Now he’s facing those childhood fears by playing Nebraska Williams, a former Marine who enlists in a special Predator-hunting operation headed up by his good friend Quinn McKenna (played by Logan‘s Boyd Holbrook). “We form a bit of a motley crew,” Rhodes says, adding that Black is putting his own distinct imprint on the franchise. “It’s what you expect a Shane Black move to be, set in the world of the Predator.”

"Nebraska Williams, a former Marine who enlists in a special Predator-hunting operation headed up by his good friend Quinn McKenna"

So, we've got a band of marines with a specific directive aimed at hunting down a Predator... or multiple Predators! Is this a government-run operation or a private tasking between a small group of former marine buddies? What's the motive?

We're very excited to learn more about The Predator. Feel free to let us know what you think of this new information in the comments section below!

The fact that his name is NEBRASKA is awesome (because I'm from Nebraska).

Can't wait for more info and when we get to see images of the PREDATOR(s).

Interesting that they are actively hunting a Predator or group of them. Predator 2 basically did that, with Keyes and his gang, but it just seems...Different here I guess. 


But to have a movie in which the main protagonist(s) are hunting the creatures sounds fresh. Hopefully it turns out well!

I think it will be one Predator they hunt down, but in the process discover something horrifying. Predator 2 taught us the military are very aware of the Predator and had learned a lot about it by the time that film took place. Who knows how much they've learned over the past 30 years!

Nebraska Williams? Quinn McKenna? What next, the child genius gets named Englebert Humperdinck? Whatever name-generating software Black has, he needs to uninstall. What's wrong with everyman, rugged and down-to-earth names like Martin Riggs or Roger Murtaugh? How about Joe Hollenbeck or Jimmy Dix?

In fact I'm going to do the unthinkable: I'm going to write a letter to Mr Black lobbying him to change the character names so far. I want Nebraska Williams to become John Giligan and Quinn McKenna to become Max Harper.
