If it were a week ago, we'd TOTALLY think this was an April Fool's Day gag! But believe it or not, Jean-Claude Van Damme was the original actor who played the Predator!
During an early phase of the design for the creature that would be Arnold Schwarzenegger's worst nightmare, JCVD was running and jumping around the jungle in a big pink bodysuit!
But when Jean-Claude found out that his Muscles from Brussels would be invisible half the movie due to the alien hunter's cloaking device, that was a deal breaker!
We swear we couldn't make this up! Ch-ch-check out the whole story …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
