3. As of 10-15-2001 from www.countingdown.com :::::

Wow...Top Cow is really trying to get high profile actors: "I have been recently told that the cast for the A-Team is being reworked as Top Cow is not comfortable in having a trillion dollar budget.

The movie is still scheduled to come out May 1, 2002.

Here are the Current casting ideas as of today:


Mel Gibson is still on the top of the list for the Colonel, but Producers have a few other choices incase They cannot afford Gibson's 25 million dollar Paycheck. Jack Nicholson has been courted to play Hannibal as have; Gene Hackmen, Tommy Lee Jones, Paul Newman and Robert Redford. Although most of the candidates are older than the ideal Hannibal, producers feel that there is not alot of potential in the mid 50 aged group, without paying through the nose. There Has also been rumour of Arnold Schwarzenegger wanting the role, apparently he feels this film could revitailize his career. Producers are luke warm on the idea of having a Big Austrian Bodybuilder play a all american boy.

B.A. Baracas:

Although Micheal Clarke Duncan and Ving Rhames are still near the top of the list a few new candidates who are in a lower price range have been looked into. LL Cool J is being seriously considered as a major candidate, he is of roughly the same type of build as Mr.T was, can act and is hip enough to relate to the current audience. Bill Duke has also been mentioned in the audition process.


Brad Pitt has been bumped down on the list as producers are looking for a lower price actor. Rumours swirl of Brendan Fraser but the producers have started to look at Television stars who have a significantly smaller paycheck. Charlie Sheen, Dean Cain, Adrian Paul are all in serious contention. There is even a small faction of Top Cow that wants Dirk Benedict back in the role. They are rationalizing that if they had one of the original stars to anchor the film, it could help smooth things over with the Hardcore A-Team Fans. Although it is a well known fact that Benedict feels that a A-Team movie would be a mistake.


While Jim Carrey is still in contention, producers are being to admit that it would be severly costly to have 2 25million dollar men in one production, they point to HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS barely made any money after paying Ron Howard's and Jim Carrey's paychecks. A actor that just recently came out of the blue is Micheal "Batman" Keaton. Keaton known for either brooding characters with complex problems (Batman) or extremely insane nutbars who are always hyper and histerical (Beetlejuice, Multiplicity) is being toted high on the list. Being of a low to medium price range he seems to be a front runner. Jason Lee (Kevin Smith's New Jersey Series) is also being thought of as a young emerging talent who could capture Murdock's Wacky behaviour.

Kurt Russell is being considered for all parts of the A-Team except B.A. Baracas.

Harrison Ford has said that he isn't interested in the A-Team in a member role, but he has said that he wouldn't mind playing a villian like Colonel.Decker. "
Send me an e-mail and let me know who YOU would choose as the next A-Team hereos!! I will put your name and choice in the next newsletter!!!!!

5. In the recent issue of Stuff Magazine with Pamela Anderson on the cover, there is a funny article on old TV stars, they have a picture of Murdock and a small write up about him.
