We love actors (and actresses) here at The Flickcast. Sure, sometimes they get a bad wrap or have tantrums and insult people — that happens. But in the end, we know acting is actually harder than it looks so we forgive them their little “issues.” We especially love it when actors accidently let slip details about movies they are being cast in even though those details have not been “officially” released. Fortunately, we’ve got one of those today with Bradley Cooper’s little slip to IESB confirming he’s been cast as Templeteon “Faceman” Peck in director Joe Carnahan’s A-Team movie.
Recently, during a interview about his other upcoming film The Hangover, IESB asked Cooper if he was excited to be playing the role in The A-Team, to which Cooper responded “That out already?” Of course, the news is not officially out, but Cooper may have been thrown off by the fact that most people were trying to get him to admit he’s going to be the new Green Lantern. Really, given the rather fast-paced nature of some junkets, this is understandable.
So, with Cooper apparently in as “Faceman” and Common supposedly a lock to take on the role made famous by Mr. T in the series, B.A. “Bad Attitude” Baracus, that only leaves two other roles left to cast. For my money, I would love to see Bruce Willis or Kurt Russel as “Hannibal” Smith and perhaps, as rumored at IMDB, Woody Harrelson as H.M. “Howling Mad” Murdock.
Of course, it really isn’t up to me, so I’m free to speculate all I want. Although, I think those actors would be awesome. Fortunately, with an expected relase of the film on June 11th, 2011, that means production needs to start pretty soon so we should be getting some confirmed casting news pretty soon too.
