Believe it or not, JCVD himself was once cast to play the infamous alien hunting the most dangerous game in the now-legendary Arnold Schwarzenegger film. When the late Kevin Peter Hall was eventually cast in the role, the suit changed quite a bit, as well. The original was quite a bit goofier to be sure, but van Damme apparently didn’t realize that the red monochrome suit used to film the “cloaked” scenes wasn’t going to be the onscreen suit.
Newly-released footage from the Stan Winston School of Character Arts shows the more insect-like (and wholly inferior) original design. Be prepared top giggle as a giant red beetle hops around the jungle in search of his prey!
