Jessica Biel as an Army General in charge of pursuing the outlaw A-Team of Joe Carnahan’s big-screen adaptation of the popular TV show? I don’t know about that. Jessica Biel can play a lot of roles — stripper, heavenly daughter of a preacher, fighter pilot — but an Army General? Isn’t there some kind of prerequisite to be a General? Like, say, being old enough to actually have earned it? Bah. This is Hollywood. Who needs any semblance of common logic?
As previously reported, it looks like a sure thing now that “District 9″ star Sharlto Copley will be playing Howling Murdoch in the “A-Team”, thus rounding out the movie’s principle cast of Liam Neeson as Hannibal, Bradley Cooper as Faceman, and Rampage Jackson as B.A. Baracus.
Also joining the cast according to Variety is Jessica Biel, playing the aforementioned Army General assigned to bring in the rogue group, wrongly convicted Special Forces soldiers who go on the run and end up as mercenaries of justice. If you have a problem, and no one else can help, and if you can find them, etc etc. Biel’s character will also have additional ties to the group: she’s Faceman’s ex-lover. But again, Jessica Biel as an Army General???
Shooting on “The A-Team” with its ridiculously hot Army General commences this fall in Vancouver.
