There’s a lot of anticipation for the upcoming The A-Team film. Most of the hype is probably being generated by yours truly. What can I say? I really want to see this film be a huge success.
Well, let me add to the hype machine with news that the original “Howling Mad” Murdoch will have a cameo in the new movie. According to the official Dwight Shultz site:
“We are pleased to inform you all that Dwight has actually already been working in Vancouver, where he has played a cameo role in The A-Team movie. Sharlto Copely, the South African actor who plays Murdock, is according to Dwight: ‘brilliant beyond words’. Dwight has seen his screen test and he stated: that honestly, if Sharlto is given an opportunity to do what I saw in that test, “Murdock” will be better than ever!’ Sharlto has been very kind to him on the set and Dwight must say that he has been treated very well.”
It’s great to hear the old Murdoch fully endorse the new Murdoch. Further, as cool as it will be to see an original A-Team cast member return Shultz’s inclusion will also cater to all the Star Trek fans who remember him as Lt. Reginald Barclay III. Now we just need to get Dirk Benedict and Mr. T involved to make this possibly the best remake ever.
The A-Team comes to theaters June 11, 2010
