UFC Champ To Pity Fools As The A-Team's New B.A.
Joe Carnahan’s movie adaptation of the classic 80s television series The A-Team is due to start shooting soon. The cast is already set except for one, very key, component. Who’s playing B.A.? Every rapper turned actor on the face of the Earth has, at one point or another, been rumored to be the movie’s Mr. T replacement. None of those went anywhere, so now the A-Team rumor mill has turned to the UFC.
A story in the Vancouver Sun says that light heavyweight UFC champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson has landed the part of B.A. Baracus in The A-Team. They know, because he’s in Vancouver to shoot the movie. He arrived on Friday and the Sun says he’ll be there shooting for the next six weeks.
Who knows if the guy can act, but then Mr. T couldn’t and he was perfect. Mostly he stood around and growled. Rampage Jackson, if he really has the part, should be able to manage that. Perfect casting.
