Tyrese Gibson to Play B.A. Baracus in 'A-Team'?

The busy actor gives us a few tidbits from the set of his new movie.

Last night I was in the unforgiving desert of Santa Fe, New Mexico, on a set visit for this unique religious horror flick, Legion, which stars Paul Bettany, Dennis Quaid, Willa Holland and Tyrese Gibson. Tyrese was one of the gracious stars kind enough to chat with us between takes and besides chatting about that current film, he had a few things to say about some other projects, one of which, might have him pitying the proverbial fool.

That's right. Tyrese told us that he is very close to landing the role of B.A. Baracus in John Singleton's remake of The A-Team. While he still hasn't officially signed on for the part, and he noted that the script is still being developed, the genial actor was obviously enthusiastic about the project.

While he wouldn't say much about the upcoming Transformers 2 he'll be working on, he gave us a heads up on another project he is apparently involved with.

"Look out for a film called Desert Eagle," he told us. He was on his way to the set and couldn't divulge any more details about that film and what his involvement may be.

He also gave us some info on a brand new fan number he has set up. You can call (818) 287-8968 to leave a personal message for Tyrese and he will get back to you when he's available.

We'll keep you posted on all of Tyrese's new endeavors as soon as we have more information.

Legion was released January 22nd, 2010 and stars Paul Bettany, Lucas Black, Tyrese Gibson, Adrianne Palicki, Charles S. Dutton, Kevin Durand, Jon Tenney, Willa Holland. The film is directed by Scott Stewart.

The A-Team was released June 11th, 2010 and stars Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Jessica Biel, Quinton Jackson, Sharlto Copley, Patrick Wilson, Gerald McRaney, Henry Czerny. The film is directed by Joe Carnahan.

(i'm sure those type of nights happen)

    wait what rad? lol it was xXx: State of the Union, f*ck your UK names dammit. And that movie was GARBAGE. He is a terrible action actor, his expressions and comments are all the same, watch Biker Boyz, its like a spitting image of him in State of the Union. No more action for him, actually, no more movies for him at all.

    Michael Clark Duncan, was my first choice on another post a few months back. but it looks like he ain't gonna get it. Ice-Cube?....... no thanks, i thought after XXX:The Next Level he could do more action movies. but he has let himself be typecast into the sh*tty childern comedies that ain't funny!

    it's clear they want a new look for the A-Team movie. anyway, you won't find anotther B.A, this might work depending who the rest of the cast are.

    I thought Tyrese was also working on the comic movie called Luke Cage. Talk about a full plate, Transformers 2,Desert Eagle, and now A-Team
