patrick wilson the a-team

How did we miss this casting? Patrick Wilson aka Nite-Owl II from Watchmen, has been cast in the upcoming A-Team movie. According to EW, Wilson was another actor who officially signed onto the film, along with Sharlto Copley and Jessica Biel. Wilson is no stranger to action films, so it will be interesting to see him go toe to toe with the men of the A-Team.

The primary roles in the film have already been filled so Wilson won’t being playing a member of the underground team. The major characters already spoken for include Bradley Cooper as Faceman, Liam Neeson as Hannibal, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson as Baracus, and Sharlto Copley as Murdoch. Wilson has signed on to play a CIA operative, which I’m assuming makes him one of the bad guys. The A-Team hates the government!

Out of this cast I’m the most excited to see Cooper, Neeson, and Copley play their respective roles. Liam Neeson is just badass in whatever he does and I really want to see Sharlto do some physical comedy. Murdoch is such a loose canon, and he’s so unpredictable. Production on The A-Team has already started in Vancouver, and the film is scheduled to hit theaters next summer in June of 2010.
