Shane Black apologises for casting his sex offender friend in The Predator

This past week, Los Angeles Times reported that director Shane Black had cast longtime friend Steven Wilder Striegel for a cameo role in "The Predator", as he had done for past films. I keep pushing forward and keep going knowing that at least you did the right thing, even if you're not getting that support.

"I'm not saying they weren't working on it behind the scenes", she clarified.

"The support from online and when I walk down the street and random girls say "thank you" and 'you're my hero, ' it just means so much because you kind of need that validation sometimes or you think, 'Am I insane?" I wouldn't be able to morally stand behind this movie with this guy in there.

Black expressed regret over casting Steven Wilder Striegel, a friend who is a registered sex offender.

Final-round results will decide the 30 players who qualify for the season-ending Tour Championship in two weeks at Atlanta. Tony Finau , the presumptive choice for the final US wildcard selection, is tied for 15 after three rounds.

"It has sadly become clear to me that I was misled by a friend I really wanted to believe was telling me the truth when he described the circumstances of his conviction", Black said in his apology to the Times.

Sterling K. Brown has commented on the ongoing controversy surrounding The Predator after co-star Olivia Munn said outing a convicted sex offender who worked on the film left her feeling isolated and lacking support from her silent co-stars.

She continued, "I found out, and I was really important to me to have the scene deleted".

"It's a very lonely feeling to be sitting here by myself when I should be with the rest of the cast", Munn told The Hollywood Reporter on Saturday. It stars Sterling K. Brown (This Is Us) and Munn.

He said to be ready 'for a hard hit, ' with evacutions across coastal communities in NC set to continue in the coming days. Florence is also expected to bring heavy rains, but the storm surge map does not take that flooding into account.

Let's hope that Munn's courageous stand will not lead to her being blacklisted, but rather for the outrage to generate meaningful and lasting change.

Black also apologised to the cast for "having Steve around them without giving them a voice in the decision", though in the interview Munn says she wished he had also reached out to her and the cast privately. "You did the right thing".

Striegel served six months in prison for two felonies - risk of injury to a child and enticing a minor by computer - after he pleaded guilty in 2010 following allegations that he had acted inappropriately with a 14-year-old female with whom he was related. "It would make everyone breathe easier", she wrote.

Black has frequently cast Striegel in his films, including 2013's "Iron Man 3" and 2016's "The Nice Guys". And I'm sorry you've been the only one to speak out publicly. "I was not at [the Toronto International Film Festival] so I didn't have an opportunity to be there with you".
