Ice Cube Joins A-Team Cast?


Posted January 10, 2008 - By Frank Meyer

Rap vet Ice Cube told MTV this week that he is in negotiations to play of Sergeant Bosco "B.A. (Bad Attitude)" Baracus in John Singleton’s film version of the ‘80s TV show The A-Team, a role made famous by the great Mr. T.

Cube even said he’d get a Mohawk like Mr. T if he got the role!

But the deal ain’t done yet…

The Writers Guild of America strike is holding it up, for one. Plus, while Singleton wants Cube in the role, the decision is up to Fox, who have yet to weigh in.

"I can't say that I'm gonna be [B.A. yet] because it's still up to Fox, the people who have the movie," Cube told MTV News on Tuesday. "But John Singleton hit me — I believe he's gonna direct. If he directs it, I have a great chance of doing B.A. And yeah, I'd cut it. I'd get it into a Mohawk!"

"Not only was I a fan of the show and a fan of Mr. T," Cube continued, "but it's just a great character. It's a dude, a backbone kind of dude: a little scared of airplanes, on the run from the government, that damn near sounds like me anyway! It's just a perfect fit for me."

Meanwhile, Cube can be seen in First Sunday, the next flick in the Friday cannon, and has a new single and video out for the track "Gangsta Rap Made Me Do It" off his upcoming album Raw Footage, which is out later this year.

Anyone remember when Cube was the “N***a Ya Love To Hate”? Man, with all these family flicks he’s becoming the N***a Ya Love To Love. Isn’t that cute!
