They’re back. One catchy theme song, a plot centered on a cadre of ex-Special Forces officers on the run, and a hefty helping of ’80s cheese have helped "The A-Team" linger long in the memory.
Now the memorable mercenaries are back in a big-budget summer tentpole from Fox.
The decidely B-grade cast of the late TV show have been replaced with some formidable talent. Liam Neeson with a shaky American accent will fill George Peppard’s shoes as Hannibal Smith, while Bradley Cooper will take over the part of Templeton "Faceman" Peck. Sliding in for the inimitable Mr. T. as B.A. Baracus is the UFC Light Heavyweight Champion "Rampage" Jackson.
