The Last Sucker

While it is only a small scene of the A-Team Last Supper, it is a packed vignette. While as a team, John 'Hannibal' Smith was the leader, as a show and a pop culture phenomenon, Mr. T's B.A. Baracus was clearly the breakout star and therefore the Christ figure at this table.

While it might make sense to portray Colonel Roderick Decker, who was the team's nemesis throughout the series, as Judas, it is Templeton 'Faceman' Peck in that position. He is both in the right position, is wearing a similar robe and, more to the point, he is hiding the drugs that B.A. suspects are in his milk.

The painting is from pop artist Jim Hance of Strangly Drawn, but that site appears down. You can see more of his work at his Flickr page. It's worth a visit.

This is my second entry for this week's geek Last Suppers.
