British tabloids suggest that the "A Team" is going to be the next 80s TV series-to-movie "blockbuster" to go into production.

With - get this:

George Clooney as Hannibal
Woody Harrelson as Murdoch
Ice Cube as BA and
Jude Law as Face Man.

Fucking hell. I'm not sure even Mr T could point-weld a decent film out of that lot. It sounds horribly like it's going to be another of Hollywood's self-knowing mugging to camera fests.

Well, substitute Brad Pitt for Law and put Mr T in as BA and you've got a decent cast.

Is it wrong to want to tie jude law to stakes and to leave him in the baking desert for fire ants to eat him?

Clooney is a very good actor.

I agree, HB. Or if he isn't, he's well charismatic. The Cary Grant of our times.

There was a great, somewhat fawning interview with him in TIME. And if the events in the article are the unembellished truth, then the fawning is entirely justified, and Clooney is my all time hero.

According to the article, he came to the hack's house to be interviewed over a homecooked supper, praised the food, was excellent company, did a bit of DIY (for fuck's sake), and all but tongued the writer on his way out.

I've heard from a South African volunteer in Darfur, who met Clooney there, that our man is down-to-earth and very friendly. Which supports everything I've read about him. Frankly, I'd sleep with him if he asked me to.

Add me to the list of otherwise heterosexual men who might make an exception for Clooney. Excellent actor, and seems to be a hell of a guy.

I've developed a very strong and bitter dislike of Ice Cube, so I'm not happy with him. He's about as far from Mr. T as it gets. Mr. T was grouchy and lovable, Ice Cube is cunty and a douchebag.

At least he'll get to pull this face again, and not this one he's been modelling a lot recently. God he's such a prick.

Still, I had to gawp in amazement when my ex clocked a copy of NWA's Greatest Hits and said "oh, Ice Cube the actor?" What?

(Bonus Google Image Search result.)

Clooney is not attractive! I don't understand why men will turn for him but not for someone who's actually good looking. Oh well. I guess that's the actual whole point.

If Clooney's so great, what's he doing advertising Nescafe's ridiculous branded espresso kits? This was a pretty aggressive campaign, with expensive brochures falling out of newspapers in the UK and all the rest of it.

I'm sure the fact that his hair colour suits the end product played some part in his casting; but could he also have been placed - as the face of left-wing Hollywood - to counteract Nestle's famously dodgy image, and perhaps obfuscate the fact that they're not pushing Fairtrade coffee here? Who wants to bum him now?

(Turns out Charlie Brooker, the tit, actually bought one)

The only bad thing about Clooney is he does voiceovers for Budweiser commercials. He's a good Kentucky boy--should be a bourbon sponsor (though I guess you can't get TV money for that).
