Bradley Cooper Cast in A-Team, But Not Green Lantern?

Bradley Cooper

Over the weekend, a handful of press got to chat with Bradley Cooper, who stars in the summer comedy The Hangover. Of course, the first question he was asked was whether that Green Lantern casting news from a few weeks back had any legitimacy. Unfortunately, Cooper claims that was all just an internet rumor, but who knows whether he's just playing coy for now until it gets solidified. However, our friends at IESB did get Cooper to confirm another different casting rumor - he'll be playing Lt. Templeton "Faceman" Peck aka Face in Joe Carnahan's A-Team movie alongside of Common, who will be playing B.A. Baracus.

IESB had already been tipped off about Cooper's involvement, but wanted to confirm it first hand with the up-and-coming actor. "That's out already!?" Cooper continues: "Wow. Yeah… it's Joe Carnahan's. It's very interesting. It'll be cool. It will be cool see what… He'll make a great movie out of it." He's definitely not playing coy on this news. I have a feeling that Fox (who is developing this) wants to release the full cast for the film all together, and is waiting on other details before they make an official announcement. But it looks like we know for sure that Common and Bradley Cooper are part of the new and improved A-Team.

Common? Really? I mean, he's not the worst rapper/actor but he is pretty.....static?

Just saying, Cylons have more inflection.

If Fox is developing this, its gona suck! and the cast so far is poor. Common is a terrible choice for B.A.!! 50 Cent would have been better (Not saying he should be cast, just saying he would be better than Common) and Bradley Cooper, i just dont like the look on his face! (bad pun intended). So whose gona be murdoch then? jim Carey? oh and what about Ian Mckellan for Hannibal... ok i was just joking about those two...

Cooper as Face is a 150% improvement over Common being cast as B.A. Baracus.

i think owen wilson would have been a better choice as face.

Terry Crews or Ice T should of been B.A. Baracus

Bradley Cooper is a d- bag i dont like him. He is not funny just ugh. I don't know there just something wrong with him.

Rampage Jackson should have been B.A.

Yes... a good actor is choosen! He's the perfect FACE. I like how they think the only thing that made B.A. was that he was black. Mr. T was funny and tough... Terry Crews would be perfect or cast against type. He doesn't have to be black. They can make Murdach Chris Rock or some shit.
