Who Should Play the A-Team in the A-Team Movie?

ateam2Liam Neeson is in talks to do an A-Team movie next year. I think he’s a decent choice as Hannibal, but I think Tommy Lee Jones would be better. ¬†Bradley Cooper (never heard of him) is in talks to be Face. I’d prefer Pierce Brosnan. That leaves two roles to be filled: Murdoch and B.A. Baracus. I think Jim Carey would be perfect for Murdoch. Common is rumored to vying for the Baracus role. No way. Common is a great rapper, but he is far from badass. If you’re gonna go the rapper route, I would say Ice Cube. Otherwise, I would say Chad L. Coleman, the guy who played Cutty in The Wire, would be perfect. Then again, why not simply hire Mr. T to play Baracus? So what is your dream A-Team Movie lineup? Post it in the comments.

  1. If you have Neeson then you need to drop the idea of the original A-Team and make it a serious drama about a group of tortured souls.Apart from the first few episodes (before the show's tenor changed., The original one had a voiceover by BA going on about going after people who hurts kids and such) that show became more and more of a send up of itself as the seasons went by. If you go goofy get rid of Liam and make it another Ben Stiller vehicle.
    If you go serious then with Liam Neeson as Hannibal (name means literally Grace of God) then George Clooney as Faceman? Maybe Christian Bale… too young. Johnny Depp or Robert Downey Jr
    John Turturro as Murdoch. A really pained man whose brilliance can be useful but who is more of an autistic child with a pilot's license the family unit has adopted.
    Not Samuel Jackson as BA because it would be too obvious. How about Craig Robinson from Zach and Miri make a porno? he would be good if he could be angrier but he might be a strong choice. I would have to give Bernard Hopkins an audition. Somebody gritty and crafty for BA. A chip on his shoulder that is even larger than the immense one he deserves to carry around. Plus he is a funny guy. As well as kind of crazy.
    Have Darren Aronofsky direct it and let the chips fall where they may.

  2. Hrmmm, so they are really going to make the movie.
    Well, It will probably be awful, so having Bradley Cooper as Face doesn't annoy me all that much (he is the incredibly annoying dude who got to rub up all on Scarlett Johansson in that awful flick “He's just not that into you” and he is the “The Hangover”). Common would be a weird choice but I'd live Carey as Murdock, as far as Mr/ T goes, I agree they should just get him- the only other person I could imagine saying 'I pity the fool' over and over again is Tracy Morgan, but then it would just end up being a pardody, which may turn out to be the case anyway…

  3. bradly cooper was great in the wedding crashers as zack the sack lodge
