The Game Not Confirmed For A-Team Role, Says Rep

Last week rumors hit the net that The Game was set to resurrect Mr. T’s role as B.A. Baracus in the upcoming A-Team movie, yet his rep has confirmed with XXLMag.com that while the Compton rapper is up for the part, he has not snagged it just yet. 

Chuck Taylor is not the only artist vying for the role, Common, Ice Cube and Tyrese’s names have all been mentioned in previous reports. It has been confirmed that Joe Carnahan (Smokin’ Aces) will be directing the flick— a remake of the classic ’80s TV show.

In related news the Doctor’s Advocate will star alongside Stacey Dash in the upcoming movie House Arrest. The film, described as a “dramedy” by director Billy Washington, centers around a “high maintenance girl who meets a quick money scheming man.” –Max G

    BA Barracus = Kimbo Slice

    Face Man = Brad Pitt

    Murdock = Jim Carrey

    There, now make it happen.

  • Pierzy

    So wouldn’t it seem that Common would have the inside track since he was in Smokin’ Aces? He was actually very good in that flick

    Ice Cube’s a better Mr. T than The Game, imo. No hate though. The A-Team was my shit!!!

  • Silly Willy

    And Game was horrible in Street Kingz…..I’d give it to Ving Rhames……

    • Jamal7Mile

      VING RHAMES! Good point, Willy, I’ll co-sign that one over my Ice Cube preference. There’s another actor I’m trying to think of who would be good for this role… I just can’t think of the name.

      Oh well…

  • adrian smith erdington birmingham

    ice cube ice cube should be in the remark of the classic tv show a team come on get it right ice cub ice cube n.w.a cant wait for the n.w.a. movie soon can i get a part in it

  • adrian smith birmignham england

  • Deuce53

    lol, how bout D-BO from friday? put that dude in the big ass chains, and the fro hawk, lookin just like mr. T….well not really haha but u kno it aint bad….i wasnt alive to see the A-Team, but i herd its like a team of spies or sumthn??? enlighten me somebody…

    • Silly Willy

      It was a team of Vietnam commando veterans, each one with special skills, forming a team of badass detectives or vigilantes or whatever, I don’t remember very well. But the main point is Barracuda, Mr T’s character, is the gulliest demolition man ever made, with jewels to make 5 rap labels altogether jealous. So it needs charismatic badass attitude, hence my suggestion of the Rhames …

      • http://tonygrands.blogspot.com Tony Grand$

        Lol.

        Not “Baracuda”, his name was B(ad) A(ttitude) Baracus.

        It was him, Face, Hannibal & Murdock.

        • Silly Willy

          LMAO !!!!

          Yo, Grands ! Sorry about that ! That was just how we nicknamed him, I think, and it got stuck in my head ….

  • teflon_coated_bulletts

    Has to be Cube. Hes probably the only one who could act convincingly as Mr.T.

  • Capo Status

    This Michael Jackson shyt needs to quit already. I mean Mike was cool and all but every channel along with every radio station along with every B-List actor/actress is trying to capitolize off his life with some sort of mj bashing or how bad is life was documentary or whatever. I mean cant we just let this man go to his final resting place in peace. Im not even going to get on these crazed so called fans in L.A….This is CRAZY!!!!!

  • Brooklyn

    All I needed to see was the sequel to Belly to convince me that the Game is probably one of the worst actors ever. That movie was so bad I was glad I copped that shit for five dollars from that African nigga on Pitkin Avenue and didn’t waste the 14.95 that Virgin Records wanted for that bullshit. That movie ain’t even worthy enough for me to roll my blunts on. But yeah, Ving should play T, either that or they can get Gary Coleman to dress up like he did in that episode of Different Strokes.

  • Broke Iz A Disease

    Yo I don’t get why my posts don’t get posted. So here it goes again:

    Hannibal = George Clooney

    Face = Brad Pitt

    Murdock = Jim Carrey

    BA = Kimbo Slice (you don’t need a good actor, Mr. T isn’t exactly Denzel Washington)

  • Mutada al sader the king

    ^ Naw, you can tell most of the media writters and reporters were fans. I’m actually quite pleased with the amount and positive coverage Mikes getting. They call him, the king of pop, the king, the best performer of all time etc. Its evidence that lots of people loved that dude. Some people try to bring up the charges and negatives, but I’m quite pleased with the coverage that MJ is getting, he fucking deserves it

  • SOUTHSIDE A-TOWN

    when i first heard this i thought of one name, & one name only, KIMBO SLICE!!! he’d be perfect for that role. (of course he would have to learn how to act)

    but if were talking already established actors than i co-sign Ving Rhames & no one else.

    • sb

      kymbo slice would be the perfect..I have been saying that for the past year…I couldn’t see anyone else..And remember Mr t was a bouncer from chicago before he did rocky 3 and the a team….So sloice could pull it off

  • http://tonygrands.blogspot.com Tony Grand$

    What up to all you cats.

    The Mike coverage is good. Very respectful, aside from the occasional douche yelling out “We Love You Mike!”. Who does that @ a funeral.

    But, I think Ice Cube would be the best candidate. His persona is most similar to Mr. T. Lack of facial expression, monotone voice, disgruntled demeanor. That show was my shit.

    Game’s not an actor. These companies think they can’t “360″ every artist, but that’s lame. & mathematically impossible for every dude who can write a decent rap can portray a character in a movie.

    Maybe game thought he pulled off the “stripper guy” so good on that gameshow that’s he’s an actual thespian. No Dice.

    • http://tonygrands.blogspot.com Tony Grand$

      Only reason I don’t say Ving Rhames is because dude is a really good actor. I think to capture the actual “Mr. T” personification, you would need someone who leans more toward mediocre.

      Otherwise, Ving would steal the show & outshine whoever else is in it.

    • $ykotic

      Now BET should apologize to every single MJ fan for that monstrosity they tried to pass off as a “tribute”.

      This is a real tribute.

      Oh yeah, my vote goes to Ving with Cube in the wings in case Ving is busy.

      • http://tonygrands.blogspot.com Tony Grand$

        I think Ving would be too good to be in that. Especially if they’re considering some like The Game.

        If he were to play BA, Ving I mean, he’ll easily outshine everyone else on the cast. Dude’s official.

        But right now, Ving’s working on a movie with Nipsey Hu$$le & some East Coast cat, with another film coming right behind it, so I doubt it would be him anyway.

        But, Ving or O’shay would both kill that roll. I can’t wait to see what the va looks like. & the real question is who would play Face, since he got all the broads a man could want.

        RIP George Peppard.

        • http://tonygrands.blogspot.com Tony Grand$

          *that should say “van” not va*

          Fucking typo’s

        • Silly Willy

          Face ?…..How about Matthew McConnaughey ? Too far-fetched ?? I mean, broads looooove him, and he can look resourceful and plain goofy at the same time….

        • http://tonygrands.blogspot.com Tony Grand$

          [||]…….yeah, Matthew McCoughnahey(spellcheck) would be ill. Especially if he does that pseudo-European, sophisticated gentleman deal. Faceman had that uppity quality. & Hannibal. It would be sick if they landed someone other than a white cat (no racism). Lawrence Fishborne, anyone?

  • SOUTHSIDE A-TOWN

    all this L.A. Hollywood talk, does anyone smell *sniff sniff* a repeat for the L.A. Lakers… or is it just me?

    • http://tonygrands.blogspot.com Tony Grand$

      323 All day every!

      Even when they lose, they still won to me. Fuck Ron Artest!! But, that’s going to be a major piece to what we need. Hell, if we had him this last season, it would’ve been that much easier.

      Ariza is off the chain, but Artest’s crazy ass will more than fill the void. Like, our own post-Madonna Dennis Rodman. Defense & a GUARANTEED 16 points a night. & don’t forget, he’s an intimidating ass dude. I wouldn’t have him @ my crib for dinner.

      It won’t be easy though, James & O’Neal are going to be a monster team. & KG’s got something to prove. Next season going to be way more exciting than the last one. Orlando who?

      • $ykotic

        I wonder how Dwight feels repping Disney.

        LA may take the west crown(can only see Denver and The Blazers as a threat) but I think they put the “beast” back in the east. Rich Jeff on the Spurs doesn’t hide the fact that Timmy is losing it.

        • 619

          All the contenders in the East picked up major free agents. Cavs getting Shaq, Magic getting Vince Carter, and the Celtics just landed Rasheed Wallace who should be an insurance policy in case K.G. comes up injured again. That should be the only challenge to the Lakers, who will run through the West with no problem. Think about that starting 5: DFisher, Kobe, Ron Artest, Pau Gasol, and Bynum, it’s a wrap no contest until the Finals.

        • 619

          The Blazers? Seriously? Any chance they have is based on Greg Oden staying healthy, and that mafucker is the most injured player I’ve ever seen in NBA history. He can’t even make it through one week without coming up gimpy. And Denver won’t do shit, all the Lakers have to do now is stick Artest on Melo. Artest can guard any opponent, now that Kobe’s on the same team as him. haha.

        • $ykotic

          The Blazers gave the Laker’s all types of fits(no Memphis Bleek) last season. And Oden to me is a bum. Fish can’t hold Brandon Roy.

          Barring injuries, I don’t see Denver falling off. But I’ma wait until after this free agency shift around and see who is who before I really jump into the Yankee season.

        • 619

          Kobe can guard Roy no problem. The West is the weaker conference now, except for the Lakers. The Mavericks pickin’ up Jason Kidd was funny, they couldn’t even win a championship when they used to have him and they still got the same squad as before he left. When is Mark Cuban gonna recognize that his squad is gonna keep gettin’ knocked out in the first round without a decent center.

    co-sign all that^^^

    Lakers vs. Celtics rematch, the only other team i even give a chance to is Cleveland. anybody else getting rolled over.

  • Dubb

    Hell i think they should have Jim Carrey for Hanabal but he’s way to expensive. For that role they just someone that’s way out in left field. And yeah i would have my man Cube play MR. T’s old character.

  • Smashone a.k.a The God

    Nah Nah Nah…….I’m feeling all the names that dropped but I think my man Terry Crews would be perfect…..the big dude that was singing “making my way downtown” in the White Chicks joint……lol…….

  • ea$y money

    I say terry crews (white chicks) would be perfect

  • Ste

    i think ice cube wud suit mr T better thn game.. game looks scrawny copmared to cube

  • Prinz

    Hannibal – George Clooney

    Face Man – Brad Pitt

    Murdock – Jim Carrey

    BA Barracus – Kimbo SLice (you don’t need a good actor for BA, Mr. T was a terrible actor)

    And that is what it should be. But it will prob end up being some bootleg joint.
