I thought Shartlo Copley was already a done deal as Howling Mad Murdock in the upcoming A-Team, but they have yet to put pen to paper on that one, but we hear news that its as good as done. As well Jessica Biel may be signing on as an Army General and former girlfriend of Face.
Screen Crave says:
Copley and Biel are in final negotiations to join the film in their respective roles. If all goes well, Biel will play the former love of Faceman (Bradley Cooper), an Army general who is now pursuing the team. Once these two are officially on board the cast will be complete with Cooper, Liam Neeson as Hannibal, and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson as B.A. Baracus.
As much as I am not opposed to having Jessica Biel in anything at all just for pure eyecandy, I don’t know that I like her as the pursuing General.
I can’t remember the guy’s name, but I always liked the gruff and angry General from the TV show that was always a step behind the A-Team stalking them from city to city. Now that’s going to be Biel? And she’s going to have been a former girlfriend of the Faceman? This doesn’t settle well with me. But at least we will get to see Biel in a form fitting military outfit.
Personally I wished they had gone with Matt Frewer, who is still popping up in stuff. He could easily make for a great Murdock!
They had better hurry their asses up since filming has already reportedly started in Vancouver.
