There once was a show about a guy who downloaded a super computer into his brain. Like in every nerd’s fantasy, this guy used the super computer to learn how to become an elite fighter and super spy all the while maintaining his geek status. Of course, there was a beautiful blonde involved. She was way out of his league, and, as the story would go, just by being himself, was able to win her heart over. That show was called Chuck and the beautiful blonde was actress Yvonne Strahovski. Sadly, the show went off the air in 2012 and Strahovski seemed to disappear. That is until recently when it was announced that she would be part of Shane Black‘s Predator reboot.
According to the report, Strahovski will be playing the mother to Jacob Tremblay‘s character. Furthermore,
“The young boy is autistic, and his unique ability with languages draws him into the battle versus the lethal aliens.”
Boyd Holbrook will also play Tremblay’s father, who has been divorced from Strahovski’s character for quite some time.
Okay, so Strahovski didn’t quite disappear after her five years on the NBC series, Chuck. She went on to guest on hit shows like Dexter and play a major role in 24: Live Another Day (2014).
Black’s Predator reboot is schedule for release on Feb. 9, 2018.
