The A-Team “Cowboy George” (part 2 of 2)

Back at the radio station, Murdock is doing his thing, while an armored truck drives toward town. In the bar, Chuck makes a call, and reports the truck is approaching. The jeeps move out, and B.A. calls Hannibal with the news that they’re heading for Twin Rivers.

As the redneck crowd starts to whoop it up, Hannibal has a backstage chat with Boy George, telling him that he’s going to have to stay on stage as long as he can, to which George reacts with bemusement. Hannibal gives George a great intro, and George enters to boos and jeers.

Before leaving, Hannibal offers some words of encouragement, off-mike.

Hannibal: Well, all yours.
Boy George: You could always throw them some raw meat.
Hannibal: Good luck!

Boy George and Culture Club do their first number, which we see more or less in full, eating up a good three minutes or so of screen time. Well, what the hell else would you hire the guy for? Acting? Jesus, just ask anyone who’s sat through a movie with Mick Jagger. When Freejack is one of your top three performances, it’s probably a good idea to stay on good terms with Keith Richards and the rest of the band for as long as possible.
