Woody Harrelson is Howling Mad?

The A TeamAccording to Cinematical, director John Singleton believes that the perfect actor to play the role of "Howling Mad" Murdock in his upcoming movie version of the 80's action series The A Team is none other than Woody Harrelson. As a former A Team watcher, I can see that.

Harrelson does have that subtle lunatic vibe that Dwight Schultz was able to project so well before he became Lieutenant Barclay on Star Trek: The Next Generation. He's shown this in some of his movies such as Natural Born Killers.

The big question (as mentioned in the article) is who will play the quintessential B.A. Baracus (as epitomized by Mr. T)? Who could substitute for the legend? Which actor would want to?

They should replace the Faceman character with a woman. Then Dirk Benedict will have been replaced by a woman in two series revamps.

Perhaps they should just get the original cast back for the movie. Just be careful when digging up George Peppard.

These are all good suggestions, but I do not feel entirely the same way. How about:

Hannibal - David Carradine
B.A. - I think Terry Crews would be great, but so would Tommy "Tiny" Lister or LL Cool J
Murdock - Rainn Wilson or Crispin Glover
Face - Some hot porn star looking to cross-over

My picks:

Hannibal: George Clooney
Faceman: Brad Pitt
Murdock: Johnny Knoxville
Mr. T: Mr T

My picks
Hannibal - Bruce Willis
Murdock - Giovanni Ribisi
BA - Terry Crews
Faceman - Adrian Lester

Ving Rhames has been talked about more as Mr. T. but I think Terry Crews would a much better pick. I hope that they don't go the owen wilson way for faceman. I think he'd distract from whoever is murdock. lastly i don't think jim carrey would make a good murdock, i'd rather go with hank azaria or sam rockwell if not ribisi.

Sure he's older, but I sincerely believe that Mr. T could pull off playing Mr. T! I mean if Stallone can still be Rocky AND Rambo, then why can't Clubber Lang play BA Baracus?

I heard it was Vanilla Ice, but that was just from the voices in my head.

I saw a blurb on the web that they were considering Ice T for B.A.

I would vote for Ice Cube, but not Ice T.

I petition Katee Sackhoff to be cast as Face. What fun that would be!
