It’s Thursday, so it’s time to remake an 80s classic TV show or movie with an all-new cast. This week: The A-Team, the 1983-7 NBC action series about a group of Vietnam vets who help out folk in trouble. Rumor has it that a movie is already in the works, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun with it.
(This week’s Dream Cast topic was suggested by Ken in the comments of last week’s Dream Cast; if you need help, and you can find me– I mean, if you have a suggestion for an 80s TV show or movie we should play with, lemme know.)
The original cast featured:
Col. John “Hannibal” Smith: George Peppard
Capt. H.M. “Howling Mad” Murdock: Dwight Schultz
Sgt. Bosco “B.A.” Baracus: Mr. T
Lt. Templeton “Faceman” Peck: Dirk Benedict
Here’s my dream cast for the remake:
Col. John “Hannibal” Smith: Richard Dean Anderson
Capt. H.M. “Howling Mad” Murdock: Brad Pitt
Sgt. Bosco “B.A.” Baracus: Mos Def
Lt. Templeton “Faceman” Peck: John Barrowman
I guess we’d have to make our new A-Team vets of the first Gulf War, or even the current one.
