Jordan’s Peele’s "Nope" will feature a talented cast of actors, including former "The Walking Dead" star Steven Yeun, who recently appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" to talk about the movie. Although we still don't know much about the central conflict, Yeun did drop a few hints about what viewers can expect.
Yeun was asked by “Jimmy Kimmel Live” guest host Anthony Anderson to divulge information about the highly anticipated movie. “I can say I play a character named Ricky ‘Jupe’ Park, who is a former child star, and he owns his own theme park that is closely associated to the movie he was a part of that blew him up as a child,” the actor said.
These comments line up with the trailers, which show Jupe as the proprietor of a roadside attraction called Jupiter's Claim, where gathered tourists look excited to see what Yeun's character has to offer — until they're distracted by an unseen presence looming overhead. No matter how Jupe plays into the narrative, an unidentified flying object is sure to intrigue a man in his line of work.
