Ice Cube to play B.A.?
Well it's not that hard to believe that Ice Cube would make a good replacement for Mr T.'s character of B.A. in the A-Team film, but nowadays? When Cube is much less gangster and more kids entertainer?
Considering the level of films he's been doing of late you have to wonder how good this A-Team film is actually going to be if Ice Cube really does get the role.
When asked about the role over at Blackfilm through Moviehole he said he's definitely interested in it, and the way he talks it sounds like there is more to this than idle speculation, or the interviewer just asking the question because he thought that he would be a good match.
“I wouldn't try to duplicate what Mr. T did, but I will have the same impact on you when you were little watching the TV show. I'm going to bring my own flavor to it and I am going to do the mohawk...
...They want me to do it if all the business works out right. I was a fan as a kid and that would be, not a dream come true, but it's definitely a good thing to do and I would put it on my resume for sure.”
Well whatever brings in the money I'm sure. I think it would have been much, much better to get Ice Cube before he became a child entertainer, when he was still a bad ass on screen. In fact it would be much better to get someone of that ilk for the role, unless they really are going to recreate the A-Team as it was, mild mannered family entertainment. Now there's a thought.
