In honor of the release of "The A-Team" on June 11, I thought we'd kick Mother's Day off here on MTV Movies Blog with a very special message from the original B.A. Baracus, Mr. T. No questions... just watch.

If you didn't know that a Star Trek movie screenwriter was nominated for a Tony this year, you do now. Brent Spiner pointed out in Twitter-Wood today that "Red" playwright John Logan also wrote the story for "Star Trek: Nemesis." The other big "Star" franchise got some attention too, with numerous posts celebrating Star Wars Day.

Kim Kardashian was happy to hear that a suspect was in custody regarding the attempted Times Square boming in New York, while Tom Hanks was content just to be on his new film's set ten minutes early. Check out all of those tweets after the jump and you'll also find out who works out at Mr. T's gym. That info is part of the all-inclusive retweet package that is Twitter-Wood for May 4, 2010.

The Ring-- Thankfully, you have more than seven days to prepare yourself for "Ring 3D," the third installment in the horror franchise centering on a killer video creature. The 3-D film comes from "Dream House" writer David Loucka and is being billed as "more teen-centric" than the two Naomi Watts-starring outings. [Heat Vision]

-- Jason Statham isn't coming to the small screen, but "The Transporter" is. Luc Besson's EuropaCorp is teaming up with Atlantique Prods. for twelve one-hour episodes of a "Transporter" television series. Production is expected to begin in early 2011. [Variety]

-- "The A-Team" director Joe Carnahan isn't closed off to a Mr. T cameo, though he suggested that such a role might be better left for a sequel. "He'd be a great villain, totally unexpected," Carnahan teased. "Wouldn't that be perfect?" [Empire] Read More...

Welcome to “A-Team Week” on the MTV Movies Blog, boys and girls. For the next five days, we’ll be dragging your pre-conceived notions out of 1985 and into the present, with an exclusive sneak peek at Joe Carnahan’s high-adrenaline update on the classic TV show. Today, we kick off the festivities with behind-the-scenes clips and Carnahan’s thoughts on the one performance everyone seems most curious about: Quinton “Rampage” Jackson as Sergeant B.A. Baracus.

Carnahan went out on a limb to cast the mixed martial artist and former UFC Light-Heavyweight title holder. But according to the “Smokin’ Aces” filmmaker, fans will be thrilled with what they see in theaters on June 11th. Read More...

There are five months left until “The A-Team” hits theaters, and director Joe Carnahan has wrapped principal production. But for anyone out there who thinks Mr. T won’t be making a cameo in the flick, well, we pity the fool.

“There’s still a discussion about T,” the “Smokin’ Aces” filmmaker revealed to us recently during an interview for his “10 to Watch in 2010” profile. “We would love to get [Mr. T] in this film somewhere. He’s such a personality.”

Growing up, my friends and I always loved Mr. T because he was an energetic, larger-than-life, and somewhat off-the-wall character. Those same traits are why fans still love the strongman at age 57 –- and the reason why he has steadfastly refused to do an “A-Team” cameo ever since breaking the news with us nearly 3 years ago.

You can't fool us, we know you're excited for "The A-Team." When director Joe Carnahan brings his modern interpretation of the classic '80s action TV series to the big screen next summer, you're going to feel compelled to buy a ticket.

Maybe it's the chance to see that pimped-out supervan of theirs again. Maybe it's the players, a well-cast ensemble that includes Liam Neeson as Hannibal, Bradley Cooper as Faceman, Sharlto Copley as "Howling Mad" Murdock and UFC champion Quinton "Rampage" Jackson as B.A. Baracus, the role made famous by Mr. T. Or maybe you're excited at the prospect of seeing some of the old Team assemble for cameos. Well... it's probably best if you temper that excitement a little bit. Read More...

Chris PineOne of the hottest young actors in Hollywood right now is Chris Pine, who’ll hit theaters May 8th as the new Captain Kirk in “Star Trek.” But these days, the actor has his eye on another big-screen adaptation of a classic TV show.

“We’ve talked about it,” Pine revealed to MTV recently when we asked whether he had approached his old friend Joe Carnahan about reuniting for the upcoming “A-Team” movie. “I’d love to.”

Carnahan gave Pine his first big break as an action star with the 2006 film “Smokin’ Aces,” and now that the director has been handed the keys to the high-profile film adaptation of the Mr. T show, Pine has been reminding the filmmaker that “A-Team” was one of his favorite TV shows growing up.

TyrsesYesterday, our friends at Latino Review ran a story about Tyrese Gibson, in which the singer turned actor confirmed he’s committed to starring in a potential “A-Team” movie, more or less reiterating statements he originally made to CHUD’s Devin Faraci last May.

Interestingly, though, Gibson didn’t mention whether or not he was up for B.A. Baracus, the character made famous by Mr. T, or some other role, leading LR’s George Roush to speculate that he might be in the running for Templeton “Faceman” Peck instead.

Tyrese Gibson pities the fool that speculates.
