The good ol' days!

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?

  1. I don’t know anyone that can replace Mr. T. But really, can any of them be replaced? Certainly the show’s stories or its action isn’t what makes it so iconic. Look, that car flipped over that bush and blew up! But don’t worry, everyone is okay. Welcome to every A-Team action sequence ever. But the characters, the sheer charisma they radiated makes you believe that they are so awesome that they really can do anything and make it all come together in the end.

    I question whether anyone has the literary chops to do an A-Team script justice. They’ll either go all action or an action/camp mix and just make it suck either way. It’s the characters that made it good. …kicking ass didn’t hurt, but only because it was them kicking ass. The Mexican guy? One season. Clearly not enough charisma. He kicked ass. We didn’t care.

  2. I’m a HUGE Dwayne Johnson fan, but I’m not sure even he could fill Mr. T’s shoes. Can you hear anyone else saying, “I pity the fool…”
