When John Singleton was announced for the A-Team movie, I assumed Tyrese would be playing B.A. Baracus. But it turns out that everybody’s favorite Nigga Wit Attitude, Ice Cube, will be donning the gold chains to play the easily-duped-into-drinking-drugged-milk muscle of the group. ‘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,’ Cube told BlackFilm.com. ‘I’m going to bring my own flavor to it and I am going to do the mohawk.’ You can sleep easy with that news, A-Team fanatics.
Of course all of this is still up in the air, says Cube. ‘They want me to do it if all the business works out right,’ he said. ‘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.’
I don’t really give a shit who they cast in this (unless Singleton blew a brain lobe and cast only mumblecore actors. I would be first in line for that movie), but I do have to marvel at how low Ice Cube has fallen that starring in a big screen version of The A-Team seems to be a step up from his shitty family movies. I liked Ice Cube better when he was rapping about Korean markets, frankly.
