Liam Neeson is in negotiations to play Ra’s Al Ghul in the upcoming Joe Carnahan incarnation of The A-Team. Oh, wait…correction…he’s in talks to play Hannibal (played by George Peppard in the original). Meanwhile, Bradley Cooper, no doubt living it up since it was announced The Hangover actually made more money than Disney’s Up this past week, is in talks to play Faceman, the role played by Dirk Benedict in the original.
Neeson’s really been kicking a lot of @$$ these last couple of years since Batman Begins. Besides kicking all kinds of booty in Taken, he’s also going to be playing Zeus in the upcoming remake of Clash of the Titans. Cooper’s not doing too shabby himself. He’s kind of earned it though, since Midnight Meat Train was such a disaster for him.
As for “Howling Mad” Murdock and “B.A.” Baracus, the roles are still open. Not entirely sure who can fill the shoes of Mr. T. They may as well quit bein’ fools and just cast Mr. T. He still pretty much looks like he did back then. I pity the fool who don’t cast Mistah T. Seriously…who could replace Mr. T?
