Cube ready for A-Team

08.11.2008

Ice Cube doesn't know if or when an A-TEAM movie will get made but he does know one thing for sure: if it does he better be playing B.A. Baracus. "Man, I am so ready to play B.A. Baracus," Cube told the LA Times. "I really want it to happen and it’s the thing we’ve been talking about lately," Cube says of his discussions with director John Singleton. Of course because every movie has to make reference to THE DARK KNIGHT, Cube says that they're taking their inspiration from what Christopher Nolan was able to do with the Batman franchise. "I always look at how...they upgraded Batman from what it was not that long ago." Cube certainly has some ideas on the character including the surprising lack of B.A.'s gold chains. "I don’t know about that," said Cube dismissively on the blingage issue. The movie has been in development for a while but could gain some heat with the writers - Michael Brandt and Derek Haas - hot off the success of WANTED. Both Bruce Willis and Woody Harrelson have been rumored to be attached to the film but as Cube says, "everything is in limbo."

Big Ass Barracus

Cube is a horrible choice! Duncan would be a huge upgrade, but I'm thinking this one's gonna suck anyway. How about Downey Jr. in Tropic Thunder blackface? LOL!

SeymourClearly

got it right... Micheal Clark Duncan would be awesome for the part!

I have nothing against Cube, but I just don't see him as B.A.

naahhh

I like him..but he way too small for the role. B.A was the muscle of the team. Cube doesn't give off that muscle vibe.

I like Joey Tomatoes idea of Kimbo Slice. Of course, they'd have to toss on a mohawk toupee. He's definitely mean and surly looking. Bob Sapp would be great if they're turning BA into a giant (that dude's a friggin monster).

I love Ice Cube, but he's the wrong guy for this.

Terry Crews is the only one who should get that part. The guy's intimidating and funny as hell at the same time, he'd make a perfect Barackus.

I like Icecube for this. Mr T wasn't the tallest guy in the world... and not the most muscular either. he was just imposing and surly. Like Cube (used to be).

Terry Crewes is twice the size of Mr. T and twice as jacked. that is waaaay off in casting. Although Crewes is funny as hell.

SAY WHAT?

The only remake that Ice Cube should be in is Fantasy Island. He could play the part of Tattoo! The guy is much too short and fat to play BA. We need folks like Terry Crews, Ving Rhames or Michael Clark Duncan to play him.

I think that Cube forgot what happened when he played the title character in the XXX sequel. A complete box office disaster!!!! Stay away from The A Team Mr. Cube!!!!
