Ever Wonder What These Movie Aliens Look Like Out Of Costume?

Brian Prince was utterly transformed as the titular Predator in 2018's fourth installment of the classic sci-fi franchise. Much like Bolaji Badejo, who landed the role as the original Alien, Prince is remarkably tall, coming in at "about 7 feet tall" according to Den of Geek. "I got really lucky," he told the mag. "I was originally an art student in Atlanta, I draw comics and do illustrations and stuff. I was in Seattle, Washington, in a parkour gym — I've done parkour for nine years." 



However, Prince wasn't a total newcomer, having previously used his athletic abilities to snag roles as a stunt extra on The Walking Dead, Captain America: Civil War, and Black Panther. After showcasing his abilities in a video to the film's producers, the buff parkour vet got a call from The Predator's stunt coordinator. "This creature's a lot more mobile," Prince explained. "In the other films, they'd move, for sure, but a lot of the times, in the first one, there wasn't a lot of agile movement. So with this one, for me, they're throwing me through things."


Unlike Alien's Badejo, whom the cast was intimidated by off-camera, Prince's co-stars thought he was a total sweetie: "Olivia Munn said to me, 'There's no way you can play the Predator — you're too nice.'" He certainly proved her wrong.
