Frankly, I think a bare-assed Predator doing the splits would have been all Predator needed to snag that Oscar nod, but it wasn’t to be. Apparantly Jean-Claude was only gonna be the predator in cloaked mode, and it didn’t sit well with him to just be a blurry special effect. That’s the word on the street anyway. Of course, at least they didn’t offer him the role of a critter. Though I think Critters also could have used a little Jean-Claude magic in it. Perhaps even a dance scene! The thought of Jean-Claude dressed as a critter shaking his thang in some seedy Thai bar is sublime.
