Steve Wilder (born Steven Wilder Striegel; October 23, 1970) is an American actor, writer and producer who played an unnamed jogger in the 2018 film The Predator, although his scenes were deleted from the final cut of the movie. Other notable films Wilder has appeared in include Iron Man 3 (2013), The Nice Guys (2016) and Last Man Club (2016). Aside from his work in film, Wilder has had an extensive career in television.

Wilder's role in the movie was removed when co-star Olivia Munn drew attention to his status as a registered sex offender who had attempted to lure a minor into a relationship through social media.[1] Wilder was a long-time friend of The Predator director Shane Black, who had cast Wilder in several of his films even following his conviction. Black received criticism for this, but defended himself by stating that he was simply "helping a friend".
