The character: Captain H.M. 'Howling Mad' Murdock
Who is he? Certifiable nutcase, always creating crazy characters. But he's also an ace pilot.

Who we’d rather see: Robert Downey Jr
Chances are he’d never go for it these days, what with his Iron Man superstar status, but Tropic Thunder proved RDJ is a terrific comic actor who's happy to go the extra mile for a role.
And, like Thunder, The A-Team would be an ensemble piece, so he'd have carte blanche to steal the show...
