Closing in its principal photography date, "The A-Team" is hit with another casting report. Moviehole broke the news that David Richmond-Peck, who has worked with director Joe Carnahan for direct-to-DVD sequel of "Smokin' Aces", has been offered the role of Gammons.
Richmond-Peck reportedly was on top of Carnahan's list for the movie's baddie because Carnahan was reportedly "so impressed" by his multi-faceted performance in "Smokin' Aces : Blowback". Before being offered Gammons role, the actor who plays Georgie in ABC's "V" had earlier tested for the role of the lead villain, Lynch.
Moviehole has also confirmed the involvement of Quinton Jackson, aka Rampage Jackson, in the project. The former UFC world lightweight champion will indeed take on the role once made famous by Mr. T, B.A. Baracus. He is joining Liam Neeson who will play Colonel John "Hannibal" Smith, and Bradley Cooper who is set for Lt. Templeton "Faceman" Peck.
"The A-Team" is a big screen adaptation to the popular '80s NBC series of the same name. Joe Carnahan has been appointed to direct the film as well as to polish the Skip Woods' script along with writer Brian Bloom. Shooting is set to begin in Vancouver, Canada on Monday, September 14 for a June 11, 2010 U.S. release.
