I think he’s absolutely perfect for the role and from everything we’ve heard about him on set for this and his debut role in D-9, it looks like it’s true.

Do you know who agrees with me? Well, the original Murdock of course, played by Dwight Schultz, who has seen Copley’s screen test describing it as “brilliant beyond words.” Better yet, Schultz will be appearing in the movie in a cameo role and is already on set in Vancouver.

See the report from the official Dwight Schultz fansite below.

We have received many questions if Dwight will have a cameo part in the A-team movie. We are pleased to inform you all that Dwight has actually already been working in Vancouver, where he has played a cameo role in The A-Team movie. Sharlto Copely, the South African actor who plays Murdock, is according to Dwight: ‘brilliant beyond words’. Dwight has seen his screen test and he stated: that honestly, if Sharlto is given an opportunity to do what I saw in that test, “Murdock” will be better than ever!’ Sharlto has been very kind to him on the set and Dwight must say that he has been treated very well.

I like the idea of Schultz playing a cameo role and it’s a nice throw back for fans of the original show. With him on board, is it possible that we see cameos from Mr. T. and Dirk Benedict as well? Unfortunately, George Peppard (the original Hannibal) passed away in 15 years ago as it would of been neat to see all four have guest appearance but they can still make do.Not having Mr.T seems like a missed opportunity to me although I’d admit to see two characters like B.A. Baracus in the film.

Don’t forget to check out the first image of The A-Team as well as the on-set interviews that Screen Rant put up recently.

What do you think of Dwight Schultz appearing in the film and would you like to see the other two make a guest appearance as well?

The A-Team opens in theaters June 11, 2010.

  1. I think that picture of Murdock in the header is from the episode where B.A. was hurt and in the hospital and couldn’t drive the van so Murdock drove it for awhile. However, he couldn’t get it to steer correctly until he realized it was because of all the extra weight from the gold chains that B.A. wore.

    So Murdock put on all the accessories he could to look like B.A. and then when that wasn’t enough, he put bricks under the seat as well :) Man I love me some A-Team.

  2. As long as this film has a semi serious tone, I am looking forward to it, because the A Team could be funny and deliver a serious message at the same time. And of course, jeeps blowing up and flipping over, hopefully they’ll stick to the no death rule as well.

  3. There is only one BA Baracus, sucka! I pity the fool who tries to imitate me!

  4. This was kind of expected. Most of these movies try to throw in at least one cameo from someone involved in the original production.

  5. While I’m looking forward to the movie, I have to say it’s nice to hear the names of the original cast being mentioned. Dwight Schultz seems like a thoughtful gentleman and it’ll be great to see him on the screen again. Hopefully Dirk Benedict and Mr. T will be able to have roles, too. I think they deserve that at the very least. Were it not for them, after all.

  6. I don’t know much about the A-Team, but I’ll see this movie. I would love it if Mr. T had a cameo! That’s about all I know about the A-Team is that Mr. T is in it.

  7. I love Dwight Schultz so I’m very excited to see him doing the cameo. While the A-Team movie might be awesome and Sharlto Copley’s performance may be very well and good, my favorite character will always remain the best as Dwight Schultz.

  8. I concur with IQ re: Murdock.
    Yaahoo! Dwight Shultz should be fantastic – great to see him again, fair play to Sharlto Copley all the best to him.

  9. I’d love to see the original members in the movie. I’m waiting for the DVD before I see the movie, though, because it’s cheaper; that way if I don’t like the movie I won’t be out a gazillion dollars.
