A-Team casting?

05.14.2008
John Singleton's movie update of 80s TV do-gooders for hire THE A-TEAM is due in theaters next summer, and casting names are currently being kicked around.

First up, Latino Review says that none other than Bruce Willis is being pursued for the part of cigar-chomping leader Hannibal Smith, played to perfection by the late George Peppard on the series. It remains to be seen if Bruno will love it for this plan to come together (with a significant paycheck, for sure).

Meanwhile, CHUD chatted with Tyrese Gibson on the set of the supernatural thriller LEGION, and although the papers aren't quite signed, he sure talks like he's a lock for the team's scowling badass B.A. Baracus. Previous rumors had Ice Cube stepping into Mr. T's famous role, but Tyrese wouldn't be a surprise, having already worked with Singleton on three other movies.

The script is still being reworked, but expect some kind of announcements fairly soon if Fox plans to get the film in shape for its already-slotted June 2009 release date.
Extra Tidbit: Should the new movie include the irritating reporter chick and the ponytailed special-effects guy nobody really remembers?

Only way to cast

Honestly. Tyrese should not touch this. Bringing up the a-team movie now already disheartens me since i'm a die hard fan of the series. They need to keep coming up with original ideas for movies, and not some hotshots sitting around a desk going (what other tv show to movie can we fuck up this year....we took care of bewitched, the honeymooners, etc).

But since hollywood doesn't care about who's parade they piss on, the cast should be something along the lines of:
George Clooney -

But since hollywood doesn't care about who's parade they piss on, the cast should be something along the lines of:
George Clooney - Hannibal Smith
-clooney's got the look, i can't deny that...probably the only actor i could list as hannibal without peppard spinning in his grave.

Timothy Olyphant - Templeton Peck (face)

Jim Carey - Murdock
-He's got the hair and he's already done his insane/loopy roles.

Ving Rhames or Michael Clark Duncan - B.A Baracus
-tyrese CAN NOT be baracus...you need someone with a somewhat large frame to represent the intimidation that B.A. brings his his enemies before he does that "over the camera throw"

NOOOO!!!

Motherfuck Tyrese! Keep him out of all movies in general but especially The A-Team and the Role of B.A. Baracus. The only actor that I can think of that has the size and the intimidation factor to pull off that role is Ving Rhames! He'll get Medieval on yo ass!

Why not Ving Rhames as B.A?

He also worked with Singleton. Throw in Mel Gibson as Hannibal, Jim Carrey as Murdoch and Jon Stamos as Face. That's right, I said Stamos!

Tyrese?

What are they thinking? TERRY TATE OFFICE LINEBACKER should have been B.A Baracus. If you never seen the commercials, go find them - Reebok did them a couple years ago.

I think we can all agree on one thing: KEEP TYRESE OUT OF THIS.

Dream cast options

J.K. Simmons or Harrison Ford as Hannibal Smith...
Crispin Glover or Brian Posehn as Murdock...
Ewan McGregor or Steve Zahn as Face...
and, without a doubt, Michael Clark Duncan, with a mohawk, would be a most fantabulous sight, no?

A Team is retarded, yet I think a movie might just work. Tyrese isn't that bad but he certainly doesn't resemble Mr. T physically, maybe he can do the voice.

Cube & Tyrese are both terrible choices for BA. I'm with EZM22 and quite a few other people whenever A-Team news pops up: Terry friggen' Crews... Willis would be workable for Hannibal...

I'd have picked Terry Crews for B.A. Barackus myself... I'm more interested in knowing who'll play Murdoch. He always kinda resembled Steve Guttenberg to me.

I promise I'll commit suicide if you cast Tyrese instead of Ice Cube.
