One of the six individuals brought to the world of the predators is Edwin, played by Topher Grace. Edwin is a disgraced physician and a wanted serial killer who was mysteriously transported to the land of the Predators. In order to survive Edwin must work together with the other five convicted criminals to fight for their lives.

Grace was not new with the nemesis role where he played the role of Venom in the film Spider-Man 3. He also appears in films like Valentine’s Day, “Win A Date With Tad Hamilton,” “In Good Company” and “Traffic”, he also played the role Eric Forman in the long running TV Series That ‘70s Show.

Here is the short interview of Topher Grace with L.A.’s Jorge Carreon:

Q: What’s a nice young man like you doing in a wicked place like this?
Topher Grace. Robert Rodriguez! I’ve been a huge fan of his work since I was in high school. I saw “El Mariachi “and someone told me he made the film for $30,000 dollars. It was an amazing action film, so I’ve always wanted to be a part of something that he’s a part of. And the story has a big twist, which actors love to play. I was really interested in it being kind of a character piece; there’s more stuff for the actors to do. Then I saw “Kontroll” (director Nimrod Antal’s debut film) and thought, “This guy’s a killer director. “

Q: You've done special effects-driven movies before. What makes “Predators” unique?
Grace: The great thing about Nim and Robert’s work is that they really made a commitment at the beginning of this film to do as much with special effects as possible, and not with CGI. It’s the real thing, which helps a lot. An actor’s nightmare is standing in front of a green screen and you're looking at a tennis ball that's hanging there or a piece of tape and someone is saying, “It’s trying to kill you.” It’s easier when they have me running at 30 miles an hour away from a dog that's chasing me.

Q: Despite some rather harsh environments and the mayhem of the plot, the cast looks to be a rather solid group of friends .
Grace: Well, there’s a time where it gets really serious before we start rolling, but it is probably the most fun set I’ve ever been on. Adrien plays a leader in the film and is a great leader. He is really an egoless movie star.

Q: These films pose the question, how far would you go for your own survival?
Grace: I do not have the ability to do half the things these characters have the power to do. [laughs] I feel like I’d sprain my ankle and die within the first two minutes if I had to live through this story in real life. Edwin at his weakest is stronger than I am. I think what it really asks is, how much do you care about your fellow man? Everyone is out for their own survival, but it also says, “What is the point of being concerned about your own life’s worth when you're not concerned about others?”

Predators was written and produced by Robert Rodriguez and distributed internationally by 20th Century Fox as part of their 75th year anniversary line up. The will be shown in all theaters nationwide beginning July 8.
