Jessica Biel is gearing up to bring her A-game to "The A-Team." The actress said in a recent interview with MTV News that if fans are expecting it to be anything like the TV show, they are in for a surprise. The movie will be much more serious in tone than the classic 80's action series.
"I think it will be a little bit similar here and there but we really have our own tone going on," she said. "It’s a little bit less campy than the actual show and a little bit more serious action and fighting sequences but still with lots of humor. Lots and lots of humor."
The actress, who will star alongside Bradley Cooper, UFC champ Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, "District 9" star Sharlto Copley and Liam Neeson, would be open to seeing one of the original A-Teamers come back and get in on the action. But that's all still up in the air.
"I don’t know about [possible cameos] actually. Up to my knowledge at this point no," she said, adding that she'd like to see Mr. T play some kind of role. "That would be great. I can't imagine that people wouldn’t want to see him. When you think of A-Team you think of Mr. T, so that'd be great. I don’t know about it though."
Biel does know a thing or two about her character, Carissa Sosa (it's worth noting that IMDB lists her character's name as Amy Allen; perhaps IMDB has it wrong). "She works for the Department of Defense, so she's sort of after the A-Team throughout the whole movie," she said. "She had a previous relationship connection with one of the members of the A-Team, but not presently at the moment is their particular love interest."
Which original "A-Team" member would you most like to see in a cameo appearance? How might he/they fit into the story?
