Adrien BrodyAdrien Brody is the new Arnold Schwarzenegger. Seriously.

In a surprise move, the Oscar-winning 'Pianist' thespian has signed on for his first action hero role in 'Predators,' Fox's Robert Rodriguez-scripted-and-produced, Nimrod Antal-directed reboot of the franchise that kicked off with 1987's 'Predator.'

Though the lanky actor doesn't quite fill out a tank top the same way that Ahnuld did (he better start chugging protein shakes instead of Diet Coke if he wants to), Brody is tackling a character very similar to the one portrayed by Schwarzenegger in the original. He'll play the courageous leader of a band of mercenaries who, while on a mission in the jungle, are hunted by dreadlocked aliens bent on killing them.
