Ice Cube Joining John Singleton's A-Team?

We've always suspected that Cube felt pity for fools.

John Singleton has officially signed on to direct the A-Team movie — and Ice Cube, for one, wholeheartedly approves.

So wholeheartedly, in fact, that he’s contemplating a turn as team mechanic B.A. Baracus, the role originally played to glowering perfection by the show’s breakout star, Mr. T. Responding to a Variety report about Cube being under consideration for the part, Blackfilm took the opportunity to ask him about A-Team during a press junket in support of his latest film, First Sunday.

Asked if he’d consider playing Baracus, Cube responded “Hell yeah, especially with John Singleton directing,” going on to say that as a fan of the show, the role would be “not a dream come true, but…definitely a good thing to do.” And here’s the answer to the question everyone’s asking:

I wouldn’t try to duplicate what Mr. T did, but I will have the same impact on you when you were little watching the TV show. I’m going to bring my own flavor to it and I am going to do the mohawk.

As long as it keeps him from making another sequel to Are We There Yet?, pretty much anything Ice Cube does is all right by us. The mohawk is just a bonus.
