Meet The A-Team in Four New Featurettes
05.08.10 by Ryan
Those that didn't grow up during the 1980s may not be aware that the upcoming The A-Team movie started its artistic life as a television show about a group of soldiers who were incarcerated for a crime they didn't commit and later became vigilantes-for-hire. Fox is nervous about this potential lack of knowledge and has released four featurettes to Yahoo! that help introduce the characters in time for the movie version's June 11 release. Considering the movie is yet to be rated, it's also possible that Fox is planning for a rating lower than "R," and therefore an audience born during the 1990's (with apparently no way of watching the show in syndication).
So, with that in mind, kids, meet the leader of The A-Team, Colonel John Smith, a.k.a. Hannibal (Liam Neeson).
The "trouble shooter" of the group is Templeton Peck, a.k.a. Faceman (Bradley Cooper)
Captain James "Howling Mad" Murdock (Sharlto Copley) is the aviation expert and resident "wild card."
Lastly, but certainly not least is Bosco Baracus, a.k.a. B.A. (Quinton "Rampage" Jackson), the team's munitions expert and driver of the group's van. B.A. does not like to fly planes and will often "pity fools."
