The A-Team - Does Bradley Cooper have the right Face?

A little while back it was rumoured that rapper turned actor, Common, was to play B.A. Baracus in a big screen adaption of The A-Team. This film has been knocking around in development hell for a long time, but things seem to be moving on it. Chris Pine (Star Trek) recently said that he would love to play Murdoch and the only part that never seems to be mentioned is that if Hannibal.

IESB.net found out some more news over the weekend from actor Bradley Cooper himself, who apparantly confirmed that he will be playing Templeton Peck aka "Face".
IESB asked Bradley Cooper point blank if he was excited about playing Faceman in The A-Team. His reaction? A mixture of surprise and astonishment - "That's out already!?"

Following some laughter and excitement, he continued, "Wow. Yeah...its
Joe Carnahan's. It's very interesting. It'll be cool. It will be cool see
what...He'll make a great movie out of it."

Cooper was quickly whisked away back down the hall, after we had a chance to thank him for his time and got a "Thanks man" in return.
Joe Carnahan is down for directing the team, which will hit theaters on 11th June 2010.

This is the second piece of bit news involving Cooper. The first was that he is runoured to be one of the favourites for playing Hal Jordan in the Green Lantern film.

I can't really picture him in either role, but I have only really seen him in Alias and a couple of other things.

Do you think he would work in the role made famous by Dirk Benedict? Is Common the right one to play B.A.? Who would you like to see play Hannibal and Howling Mad Murdoch?
