    Brilliant call on the Craig Robinson thing. I can’t believe I didn’t see that…and nor do these other bloggers you link. Oddly enough, when I mentioned the A-Team remake to my brother Joe, the first thing he said was “Craig Robinson.” Kris, call up the casting office. Make this happen. This cat needs a lead role now, and this one could put him over the edge.
