I still think I'd prefer Mr. T

So just released information that The Game is the front runner for B.A. Baracus in the new A-Team movie, which was originally played by Mr.T.

Online buzz has it that the role was going to another rapper-turned-actor, Common, but with his recent casting opposite Queen Latifah in 'Just Right,' he may not finish filming before 'The A-Team' get rolling in August. Other possible candidates have included Ice Cube and mixed martial arts fighter Quinton "Rampage" Jackson.

Incase you don't know, here's a quick summary of The A-Team

The A-Team' revolves around the four members of a former commando outfit and current group of mercenaries. Their leader is Col. John "Hannibal" Smith, whose plans tend to be unorthodox but effective. Lt. Templeton "The Faceman" (usually referred to simply as "Face") Peck is a smooth-talking con-man who serves as the team's appropriator of vehicles and other useful items. The team's pilot is Capt. H.M. "Howling Mad" Murdock, who has been declared insane and resides in a mental institution for the show's first four seasons. Finally, there is the team's strong man and mechanic, Sgt. B.A. "Bad Attitude" Baracus.
