Liamneeson_bradleycooper_290 We love it when a plan comes together.

Two big stars have officially put their names into negotiations for roles in the movie version of “The A-Team.” Variety reports Liam Neeson is in talks to play Col. John “Hannibal” Smith, the cigar-chomping team leader originally played by George Peppard.

Meanwhile, those rumors about “The Hangover” star Bradley Cooper are true: Cooper is officially in talks for the part of Templeton “Face” Peck, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Dirk Benedict played master of disguise Peck on the television series.

“Star Trek” star Chris Pine, meanwhile, is campaigning hard for the role of “Howlin’ Mad” Murdock, the team’s resident pilot and madman.

He’d better hurry: Filming begins later this summer for a June 11, 2010 release.

Still no word on who will take up Mr. T’s mohawk as B.A. “Bad Attitude” Baracus.

“The A-Team” was, of course, a group of elite commandos convicted during the Vietnam War of a crime they did not commit. The members escaped to Los Angeles, where they might be able to solve your problems … if you could find them.
