The Hateful Eight's Demián Bichir is taking on the unenviable task of being anyone but the female lead in an Alien film. According to Deadline, the Academy Award-nominated actor has signed on to join Alien: Covenant, the Prometheus sequel that will explain how the hell Danny McBride's mullet formed the stairway to 1979's Alien. Michael Fassbender and Katherine Waterston are also starring in the film, which sees a colony ship trying to settle on an "uncharted paradise" that I am going to wager has got some real asshole of an alien already living there. But I guess Bichir can't really end up much worse than he did in Hateful Eight, huh?
