There was speculation a couple of weeks ago that Bradley Cooper, star of the upcoming comedy The Hangover, was heavily in talks to play the Green Lantern, but that’s just not so. Cooper dismissed those claims at a recent press junket for Hangover and now it seems that he’ll be heading up a whole other franchise instead: The A-Team.
According to IESB.net, Cooper will be playing Lt. Templeton “Faceman” Peck in the inevitable silver screen reboot of the popular 80′s TV series. The film is being directed by Joe Carnahan, who gave us the mixed bag that was Smokin’ Aces a few years ago.
Now, I know absolutely nothing about the A-Team, so I can’t quite say I have an opinion on the matter, but I do really like Bradley Cooper and I’m glad he’s starting to take off. Maybe he won’t just be remembered as the dick fiance in Wedding Crashers (although he’ll always be that guy who stumbled upon urban madness in Midnight Meat Train to me).
