The actors knew if they were going to make this work that chemistry was important.
"In terms of us working together, we knew right away that there was chemistry because we had this weapons training class that we had to do before we started shooting," said Cooper. "We all got to bond based on that experience and it just carried through the movie."
"In the weapons training we were all amateurs," said Neeson. "We were all vulnerable. That vulnerability drew us all closer in a strange way."
The film is filled with action and many of the actors found themselves on the injured list.
"I tore a rotator cuff. Bradley had a hamstring injury," said Neeson. "Stuff happens."
"I never got too many bad injuries," said Jackson. "If I had gotten half the injuries these guys got I would have packed up. I would have gone."
"My guy gets to fly around while these guys have to run around and do the hard work," said Copley. "I just had fun."
"The A-Team" is rated PG-13 and opens Friday.
