Oh man, I’m geekgasming. Blackfilm.com is reporting that Sharlto Copley — Wikus Van De Merwe in District 9 — has been offered the role of pilot Captain H.M. “Howling Mad” Murdock in the new A-Team movie.
The awesomely awesome cast already includes Bradley Cooper as Lieutenant Templeton “Faceman” Peck and Liam Neeson as Colonel John “Hannibal” Smith.
I’ve always been a huge fan of the original Murdock, Dwight Schultz, and more than a year ago, when we played the “let’s cast a hypothetical A-Team remake” game, there were some very intriguing suggestions for casting Murdock (and the rest of the gang)… but it was hard to come up with someone as good as Schultz. But the actual cast is better than I could have imagined.
So, how the hell cool would it be if Sharlto Copley played Murdock?
