But what about the cameos, right? Well I have some news for the spoiler-minded. Did the old A-Teamers make the cut? And what previously unreported TV star makes cameo at the end. Read on at your own peril.
Full disclosure first. For a variety of reasons I was not able to stay until after the credits so there’s always a chance of Sam Jackson style cameo that I’m not aware of but…
–No Mr. T. There’s only one mohawk in this film and it belongs to Rampage. Sorry. Go watch “D.C. Cab” if you need yourself a fix because he ain’t in this one.
–No Dirk Benedict. Now this one is more surprising because we know something was shot with the original Face. But unless I was truly out of it (always a possibility) his scene did NOT make the cut in the film. You’ll have to wait until the DVD.
–Who’s that mad man? So T and Dirk aren’t in it BUT there is very late appearance by none other than Don Draper himself, Mr. Jon Hamm. The “Mad Men” star appears as a CIA agent in what is essentially the coda to the film. Setting him up as an antagonist in the sequel? Perhaps. Hamm, by the way, was at the premiere. I caught him and Bradley Cooper in full-on man huggage as I walked out.
So are you bummed about the lack of original A-Teamers? Does Don Draper’s cameo do anything for you?
