REPORT: Liam Neeson To Play "Hannibal" Smith In "A-Team" Movie

Yes! The A-Team movie's coming and thanks to the possible casting addition of Liam Neeson as Col. John "Hannibal" Smith, it should be less campy. We love it when a plan comes together! » 6/09/09 4:00pm 6/09/09 4:00pm

B.A. Baracus Needs You to Caption This On Set Photo, Fool!

All we know is what we're told by our tipster who wishes to remain anonymous. He claims that yes, the large burly man in the bed of the F-Series pickup is in fact Mr. T. Also, it's a photo shoot for an upcoming Snickers commercial. While none of that can be verified, what we do know for certain is we're doubled over… » 1/09/08 4:30pm 1/09/08 4:30pm

The Best Van Ever: The A-Team's GMC

We're not too proud to admit we were the TV theme song jukebox of our elementary school's cafeteria. (We remember a kid named Earl calling out titles of TV shows for us to sing.) Our favorites were "Dallas" (which is actually even more awesome in its French incarnation), "Just Two Good Ol' Boys" (natch) and the… » 8/01/05 3:27am 8/01/05 3:27am
