It looks like Joe Carnahan’s version of The A-Team is gathering steam. IESB has managed to wrangle some major casting news, including Bradley Cooper taking on the role of Templeton “Faceman” Peck, a role originated by Dirk Benedict in the big hit 1980s action series. They’ve also got a line on Common being the leading contender to take Mr. T’s place as B.A. Baracus.
No word yet on Hannibal, but an interesting side note is that one of Cooper’s competitors for the role of Green Lantern, Carnahan veteran Chris Pine of Star Trek and Smokin’ Aces, has openly declared that he’s interested in the role of Howling Mad Murdock, which Dwight Schultz turned into comedy gold back in the day. How cool an A-Team movie would that make?
