Jessica Biel Never Saw Mr. T on Original 'A-Team'

June 09, 2010 04:33:46 GMT

Jessica Biel has added fuel to TV hardman Mr. T's harsh criticism of "The A-Team" movie remake after admitting she never saw the original U.S. series he made famous. Biel plays A-Team character Charisa Sosa in the new film, co-starring Liam Neeson and Bradley Cooper - which Mr. T has blasted for featuring too much sex and violence.

He recently said, "People die in the film and there's plenty of sex but when we did it, no one got hurt and it was all played for fun and family entertainment. These seem to be elements nobody is interested in anymore. It was too graphic for me. I've no doubt it will do big business at the box office but it's nothing like the show we turned out every week."

Miley Cyrus: My Gay Friend Is Cuter Than Liam Hemsworth

June 09, 2010 04:16:29 GMT


Miley Cyrus wants to trade boyfriend Liam Hemsworth for her gay best friend - because he's "cuter", "more fun", and has better dress sense than the Australian actor. The "Hannah Montana" star fell for Hemsworth after they were cast as lovers in romantic movie "The Last Song" but she's still adjusting to his beach-friendly attire.

She admits her unnamed gay best pal is way ahead of Hemsworth in the style stakes - and she secretly wishes he was her beau. Cyrus tells U.K. talk show host Graham Norton, "(Hemsworth's) taste is a little odd. I have a problem with people that wear board shorts when they're not going to the beach. He's constantly in surf trunks. I'm like, I don't walk around in a bikini! As much as you wish I would, I don't go out in a bikini all the time. He just wears trunks all the time."

Showbiz 411 reports that Sony thinks the actor would be perfect to be an unnamed villainous role in an untitled Spider-Man reboot, and Matthew Vaughn wants him to play Magneto in "X-Men: First Class".
