Jean-Claude Van Damme Blast from the Past

I loved Jean-Claude Van Damme movies when I grew up. It is great to see him again now  in some new movies and even more in entertaining commercials like the viral Volvo Epic Split.

This week Jean-Claude Van Damme makes headline with a movie he never actually end up doing. The Stan Winston School published an interview with Makeup FX innovator Steve Johnson who told the funny story of the original Predator costume. 

If you remember Predator movie (1987) with Arnold Schwarzenegger there was an invisible alien. Jean-Claude Van Damme was first casted to play that alien. The special effects suit looked like a red lobster. Nobody apparently told Van Damme that this was not how viewers would see him. He also did not know that he would be invisible in the movie. He ended up dropping out of Predator. Watch the story with original footage from filming Jean-Claude Van Damme in the red bug outfit below.

In related news, the Epic Spit ad with Van Damme has been nominated for a Webby Award.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
