As with the other actors Walton Goggins watched Predator before filming and before auditions, although a character like Stans didn't appear in the earlier film.

Walton Goggins prison persona character required tattoos. Working with the company KNB and makeup on set a total of 12 were applied giving the look as if gained in prison. Continuing with the character Stans, he would wear the tattoos even after filming had been finished for the day. Walton Goggins talking about the character Walter Stans as he likes to be called, 'He's a bit of a celebrity. It's interesting because his crimes were committed, you know, 15 years ago. He's been on death row for 15 years.'

Goggins physical prep for the character was the 'lack of physical prep for the role'. Basing the character on a real character, Goggins met up with Robert Rodriguez and Nimrod Antal before filming began discussing a possibility for a much more involved role. Eventually continuing as an unique character using the writers story for the character.

Production

Stuntmen completed the waterfall jump for the actors like Stans and Hanzo and like the other actors would treed water before swimming a short distance to the shore.

For Walton Goggins, Brian Munce stunt doubled for him for the waterfall scene. Various other stuntmen stood in for the actors like Ryan Ryusaki a stunt performer. These would include a falling scene, running and being caught in nets.
