If you’re starting to get that feeling like you’re seeing This Is Us star Sterling K. Brown everywhere, well you’re probably about to start hearing him everywhere too. The Emmy-Award winning actor has been selected to narrate the opening footage of the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea on NBC.
The seven-minute film titled Always Start With the Dreams will pay tribute to the whopping 2,800 Olympic athletes participating in this year’s games. It will be played right before the Opening Ceremony, which begins this Friday at 8 p.m. EST. You can expect to see skiers Mikaela Shiffrin and Lindsey Vonn, snowboarders Shaun White, Chloe Kim, and Kelly Clark, and figure skaters Nathan Chen, Evgenia Medvedeva, and Yuzuru Hanyu to make appearances in the film amongst others.
Brown joins some impeccable sounding company in the role, following in the footsteps of previous narrators such as Breaking Bad’s Giancarlo Esposito, Game of Thrones’ Peter Dinklage, Emily Blunt, Ewan McGregor and James Earl Jones.
Now, if this isn’t enough Sterling K. Brown for you, you’re in luck as he will be starring in Marvel’s upcoming Black Panther, which hits theaters next weekend, as well as The Predator, and is currently on This Is Us, which is available to stream on Hulu and has new episodes every Tuesday on NBC.
Are you going to be watching the Olympics?
Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
