Just two months ago nobody knew who Sharlto Copley was. Now he’s being rumored to be one of the stars of the upcoming movie version of The A-Team.

Okay, so going from the lead role in a modern scifi classic like District 9 to a supporting role (Howling Mad Murdock, to be precise) in a Fox adaptation of a cheesy TV show doesn’t sound like upward mobility, but in this crazy Wood we call Holly it definitely is.

The rumor comes to us from Black Film, and is just one of many casting rumors circling Joe Carnahan’s film; the other was a reboot of the rumor that Ravage, some kind of Ultimate Fighting Champion/New Warrior, would be joining the film in the pivotal role of BA Baracus.
