Well, The A-Team is now fully assembled, for whatever that’s worth. We’d already announced that Joe Carnahan (Narc, Smokin’ Aces) is directing. Now, Sharlto Copley, cashing in on his outstanding starring performance in District 9, has been cast as the final piece of the puzzle, “Howling Mad” Murdock. Incidentally, did anyone realize just what an impressive makeup job they did on him in District 9? Here he is in the film:
And here he is in real life:
I mean, wow.
Anyway, here is your final team:
Hannibal — Liam Neeson
Templeton “Faceman” Peck — Bradley Cooper
B.A. Baracus — Quinton “Rampage” Jackson
Murdock — Sharlto Copley
Also, Jessica Biel, fresh off of embarrassing herself with the putrid Powder Blue, is in talks to play the female lead, who will be an ex-girlfriend of Faceman’s. Oh, Jessica. You’re lovely, you really are. And you’re incredibly fit, and love dogs, which I respect. But… you’re not much of an actress.
Then again, it’s the fucking A-Team.
