A-Team getting cast?

Is casting on the big-screen adaptation of THE A-TEAM heating up? It would certainly look that way as IESB caught up with Bradley Cooper at the HANGOVER junket and cornered him on the rumors that he'd be starring in the film for Joe Carnahan. When asked Cooper laughed and said, ""That's out already!?," adding, "Yeah...its Joe Carnahan's. It's very interesting. It'll be cool..." Without confirming a starring role that seems pretty clear that he's at least in talks to star in the film.

Cooper would star as Lt. Templeton Peck, referred to most commonly as "Face," the conman of the team. He's also been mentioned as a possible candidate to star in GREEN LANTERN and if A-TEAM is working out for him, I'd guess that LANTERN would probably be a no-go. Rapper/actor Common has frequently been attached to the role of B.A. Baracus (as played initially by Mr. T) and Mel Gibson was once rumored to be starring as Murdock but that ship has likely (and unfortunately) sailed. Joe Carnahan is directing the film based on a script he rewrote for Fox (the original draft was written by WOLVERINE rewriter Skip Woods).

Extra Tidbit: Face was actually played by a different actor in the "A-Team" pilot before being replaced by Dirk Benedict.

Smokin' Joe Carnahan Rules

Dammit, kind of sad Carnahan shut down his blog for Smokin' Aces, he actually ran it for quite a while after its release (well into the time when Pine was cast in Star Trek and then had to give up on White Jazz).

I would have wanted to post on there, agreeing with everyone that Terry Crews HAS TO play Barracus. He actually read the comments on there, but douchebag haters were part of the reason why he shut it down I guess. Joe, if you're reading this, PLEASE LOOK INTO CREWS! DO IT DUDE!

I'm intrigued to know if whoever ends up playing B.A. Baracus will have to copy Mr T's distinctive look (Mohican, too much bling, odd feathery earring), or whether he'll be styled differently. Will it really be B.A if the actor isn't styled like Mr T? That's kind of a tough call for the film makers.

Yay for Cooper
Nay for Common

Just watch "The Wire" and you'll find 10 actors more suited for the role of Baracus

Tah Tah Mr. T

I think Seth Rogen will be perfect as Baracus.

I see him as "Face", but...

TERRY CREWS must be THE CHOICE for B.A. Baracus.. not only he is a badass but he is also funny as hell...

The dude rocks!

Yea a good choice for Face. Dunno about this Common dude though. And since when is Smokin' Joe directing?! This movie just climbed a couple ranks on my give-a-shit meter.

I hadn't thought of him, but he could definitely work as Face. On the other hand Common as B.A. doesn't seem like a good fit.
