Rampage Jackson to Play BA Baracus in A-Team Movie?
UFC former light heavyweight champ Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson has been cast in the upcoming remake of the 80s hit show The A-Team, according to the Sun newspaper in the UK. Rampage Jackson has been cast as BA Baracus, the jibba-jabba hatin', fool-pityin' badass made famous by Mr. T.
Rampage Jackson beat out rappers The Game and 50 Cent, who were in the running to play BA Baracus. Jackson has talked about playing the role for more than a year. The A-Team film is currently in pre-production and is slated to be released in the summer of 2010. Jackson will join a cast that includes Liam Neeson (Hannibal) and Bradley Cooper (Face).
Jackson has already appeared in six films, including upcoming releases Death Warrior and Duel of Legends.
MTV, on the other hand, has said that Jackson's publicist has not confirmed that the MMA star has been cast as BA Baracus.
