'The A-Team' Cast: Where Are They Now?

by Kim Potts, posted Jun 10th 2010 2:00PM

B.A., Faceman, Murdock and Hannibal live on in movie theaters this week, but what's up with the actors (and actresses ... there were a few) who first made 'The A-Team' one of TV land's most beloved band of renegades? We pity the fools who don't read on and find out ...

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?

The eight greatest TV private eyes

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 28th 2007 9:29AM

Spenser: For HireWelcome to TV Squad Lists (formerly 'The Five'), a feature where each blogger has a chance to list his or her own rundown of things in television that stand out from the rest, both good and bad.

OK, so yesterday I gave my list of the Five Greatest Police Detectives, and several readers gave their lists. Today I thought I'd do the other end of the invesitgation spectrum, private eyes, amateur sleuths and other investigators. This list was even hard to do. So many great characters.

1. Spenser (Robert Urich): I picked this Boston-based private eye because he seemed to be a great mix of brain and brawn. The type of guy who could go to the ratty gym and knock around some boxer and then go off to a fancy Beacon Hill cafe and have coffee with his girlfriend and talk about politics or literature. He was smart, clever, caring, a wiseass, and ridiculously moral. What else do you want in a private eye?

Banacek coming to DVD

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 10th 2007 11:01AM

BanacekLong before he toted a machine gun and traded quips with Mr. T, George Peppard starrred as the suave, clever insurance investigator Thomas Banacek on the Boston-based mystery series Banacek. Both characters loved their cigars.

A company called Hart Sharp Video is going to release a two-disc DVD set of the show's first season. It will be released on May 15 and is part of a series of sets they're going to release (the others are The Crow and Trapped In TV Guide, a prank show based around classic TV shows). Extras on the Banacek discs will include a photo gallery, a microsite, and a special TV Guide crossword puzzle.

George Peppard approves of A-Team special?

by Adam Finley, posted Mar 7th 2006 10:03AM

george peppardBack in December Ryan told ya'll about Bring Back the A-Team, a reunion special being created for the UK's Channel 4. Well, now the creators can forge ahead with gusto, because George Preppard has given the show the "thumbs up" from beyond the grave (cue theremin). Apparently a Hollywood medium named Madam Francesca said George was delighted with the idea. Of course, something tells me they would have made this anyway had Peppard posthumously agreed to it or not. I also spoke to George Peppard recently:

The A-Team: Together Again

by Ryan j Budke, posted Dec 28th 2005 11:19AM
A British television series, called Bring Back The..., has managed to reunite one of the greatest teams of 80's supersleuths: The A-Team. The reunion special will air on Channel 4 in Britain sometime next year, and reunite Mr. T (B.A. Baracus), Dirk Benedict (Faceman) and Dwight Schultz (Howling Mad Murdoch). Unfortunately, the great George Peppard passed away in 1994, so obviously Hannibal will only be shown in clips. I can only hope this special somehow makes it over to the newly announced Sleuth cable channel from NBC. Dun dadun dun. Dun dun, dun. I'm too excited to even describe, let me know what you think.

[Thanks Dave!]
