In a recent interview Common was asked about possibly playing B.A. Baracus in the upcoming A-Team remake.
“Yeah, that would be something cool, but, I mean, let’s see, I can’t speak on it yet until we know what’s going on but that would be an incredible character to play,” Common said.
Joe Carnahan, who directed Common in Smokin’ Aces, is set to direct The A-Team.
Mr. T played Baracus in the original, but Common said that he won’t sport a mohawk if he gets the role, preferring to not copy Mr. T.
Do you think anybody but Mr. T could (or should) play Baracus?
