Another day, another major acting role for Sterling K. Brown.

The actor has garnered portrayal for his role as Randall Pearson on NBC’s This Is Us, as well as his turn as Christopher Darden in the 2016 mini-series The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.

Brown was nominated for two Golden Globes this year (one for each of those performances) and has been all over Hollywood’s casting radar. He recently signed on for Marvel’s highly anticipated Black Panther film, and now, he’s joining the reboot realm.

On Monday, Predator director Shane Black revealed a “partial” cast photo for the upcoming reboot. Brown was one of the many faces seen in the photo.

Variety later confirmed that Brown has in fact signed on to the 20th Century Fox alien film reboot (the original was from 1987).

“Partial cast… beautiful human beings, good people. Also, killers,” Black wrote on Twitter alongside a fierce group picture. “Cameras roll today. Follow me on Twitter for updates. Wish us luck.”

The photo also includes, Trevante Rhodes, Boyd Holbrook, Olivia Munn, Keegan-Michael Key, and the always adorable, Jacob Tremblay.

The Predator is set to hit theaters on February 9, 2018.
