Introducing the new A-Team

by Brad Trechak, posted Oct 26th 2009 8:02PM
The A-TeamThe upcoming A-Team movie has released its first cast photo (a larger version can be seen here), and I'll give credit where credit is due. Not only has Fox cast the movie perfectly, but they've gone out of their way to make the cast look like their 80's television equivalents. Okay, Rampage Jackson isn't wearing gold chains, but that's about it.

They even made Liam Neeson look like George Peppard. How cool is that? And of course that's the classic van in the background. Even if this movie ends up being a mindless action flick, then it's still following in the footsteps of its originator and will likely make $100 million that weekend.

I just wonder if anybody is actually going to be shot and killed in the movie. It never seemed to happen during the television show. More importantly, will any of the original cast members make a cameo?

"Okay, Rampage Jackson isn't wearing gold chains, but that's about it."

Which is interesting since Rampage Jackson normally wears gold chains....

Mr. T didn't start out wearing all those gold chains when the A-Team first started, they increased over time and became quite ridiculous.

I may be wrong about this but, I thought the whole point of the original A-Team is that they didn't use guns, or weren't allowed to have them or something like that.

Naw, that's Batman. The A-Team blew stuff up and shot lots of things.

Saw this same photo about four days ago. It's in the current issue of Entertainment Weekly.

did they really have to give "B.A." a mohawk? It looked dumb on "Mr. T" and it looks like the whole cast is trying too hard to be the original cast.
That said, I am curious to see if the movie will be as engaging as the show was way back then.
