Harrelson mulls joining Singleton's A-Team
02.11.08 by REELZ
Last month Collider.com reported that A-Team director John Singleton, currently hard at work assembling the cast for his big screen update of the classic '80s TV series, had targeted Woody Harrelson as his ideal choice to play the team's eccentric pilot H.M. "Howling Mad" Murdock. We caught up with Harrelson over the weekend at the Semi-Pro press day to find out if he's up for it:
"I like John Singleton and the script's pretty good -- it's actually funny," said Harrelson. "It doesn't take itself too seriously. It's got quite a bit of good humor and quite a bit of excitement -- one of those fast-paced, edge-of-your seat kinds of rides."
"I haven't talked to John lately, but it might be good to work with him on that," he added.
Despite his fondness for The A-Team's script -- and for its director -- Harrelson has yet to commit. "I'm just really kinda going slow about making decisions and doing the next thing," said Harrelson. "I think I had a little period in my life where I'd say yes too easily to something or I'd get involved in something where I was like, 'Oh jeez, what am I doing?'"
We understand his reticence. Nobody wants another Starsky & Hutch.
