Tyrese is B.A. Baracus in the A-Team Movie?

Well if he’s not playing the bling-infused B.A. Baracus in John Singleton’s upcoming big-screen remake of “The A-Team”, then someone lied to singer/model/actor Tyrese (pictured, below). Either that, or he knows self-promotion when he sees it, and since the guy carries around a, what’s that, 8 pack of abs?, I’d say he knows a thing or two about selling himself. In this case, it’s selling himself as the big screen incarnation of B.A. Baracus, the brotha with the bad attitude and fear of planes, originally played by Mr. T (pictured, left) in the ’80s TV show.

CHUD has the smackdown:

Tyrese is excited by the opportunity, even if it isn’t set in stone, since the script is still being worked on and him taking the role would depend on scheduling (Tyrese is a busy dude – look for more updates on Transformers 2 and Desert Eagle when I get back to LA).

He said that a mohawk is not out of the question, but otherwise he’s excited to bring BA into the 21st century, so don’t expect a ton of bling around his neck.

Hey, at least it’s not friggin’ Ice Cube. That’s something, I guess.
