Actor Bradley Cooper has poured cold water on stories linking him with the role of Faceman in the upcoming A Team movie.

It had been claimed earlier this week by film site IESB that the He's Just Not That Into You star was in talks to star in the film version of the iconic 80s television series.

But Cooper, soon to be seen in Las Vegas comedy The Hangover, has explained the report surfaced after an IESB reporter misunderstood his reply to a question about the film.

"A guy came up to me and asked about the character Faceman in The A-Team," he told

"I said: 'Oh, that's out there already?', but my point was that news about the film is out there.

"Literally that people knew about Carnahan [Joe, the film's director] and the remake, that's it. I haven't read a script or met Joe Carnahan."

Other actors linked with The A-Team film include rapper Common and Die Hard star Bruce Willis.
