Variety reports that Liam Neeson is in negotiations with 20th Century Fox to star in its long-gestating big-screen adaptation of The A-Team as Col. John "Hannibal" Smith, and Bradley Cooper is in early talks to play Lt. Templeton "Faceman" Peck in the Joe Carnahan-directed movie based on the 1980s TV series.

I was never that big a fan, but my mom was so crazy about the series, and particularly one particular character, that I bought her the Mad-Dog Murdoch action figure--which she treated like purest gold.

On the other hand, it was a series that is in that small group of shows with totally unforgettable theme songs. :-)

Thank you for this information! I love the A-team!

And now I have to go find out if the theme song in my head matches the show....

Any useful content in this comment is drowned out by the sounds of a thousand ecstatic howler monkeys.

Thank you for sharing this.

If you need me, I'll be out back dusting off my Dwight Schultz poster.

Is it bad to have this urge to see if they should "reimagine" Face as a woman and have Katee Sackhoff do it?

Uh. Mah. Gawwwwwwd.

I loved the A-Team. Friends of mine in the 8th grade had the roles all assigned, but since there were five of us, I was competing with Chris to be Face.

That show was so formulaic... I even commented to my parents, "This show is the most violent, without having any real violence." Or something along those lines. But I watched it. Every week. And loved it.
