Who’s on Hollywood’s New A-Team?

 The A-Team van is starting to fill up.

 As the film update of the iconic 1980s TV series starts to take  shape, Variety reports Liam Neeson is in talks for the role of  cigar-chomping Col. John Smith—better known as Hannibal—  while the Hollywood Reporter says Bradley Cooper has been  engaging in post-Hangover talks for the Faceman role originally  played by dreamboat Dirk Benedict.

 The original NBC series was a romp about four falsely  imprisoned Vietnam vets who bust out of a military jail in order  to cruise around in a van, dress outlandishly and blow s--t up. The current update, which involves show creator Stephen J. Cannell, producers Ridley and Tony Scott and director Joe Carnahan among others, is said to be aiming for a more serious take.
