Get ready for a blast from the Eighties:
At one point Mel Gibson had been offered the part of Hannibal Smith, the A-Teamâ€™s leader. George Peppard played the role in the original TV series. Now Gibson is long gone and the latest rumor is that Singletonâ€™s friend Ice Cube could be the frontrunner to play the part that Mr. T did, B.A. Baracus. Understandably Fox isnâ€™t commenting on the rumor at this time.
â€œThe A-Teamâ€ also starred Dwight Schultz as â€œHowling Madâ€ Murdock and Dirk Benedict as Templeton â€œFacemanâ€ Peck. The series was one of the most popular shows on television in the 1980s and ran for five seasons.
