Here is your guide to the stellar cast of Nope:

Michael Wincott

Veteran actor Michael Wincott has appeared in films such as 1991’s Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves as Guy Gisborne, 1994’s classic The Crow as the movie’s main villain Top Dollar Man and 1997’s Alien Resurrection. He is known for playing antagonists and is a welcome addition o Nope’s cast where prior evidence would suggest he might be the movie’s bad guy, or maybe Jordan Peele will flip what he’s known for in an interesting way.
