. He also played fast-talking con-man Lt. Templeton "The Faceman" Peck
in the pilot for the 1980s hit The A-Team

for the series. The official reason given for him being replaced was it was felt that he was too young for the role, though the creators had wanted Benedict from the start but were overridden by the network executives. Another unofficial rumour is that he was too tall, towering over Mr. T
, which was felt made T, in his role as the team's tough guy, seem less intimidating.
