– According to The UK Sun, Quinton Rampage Jackson is set to play the role of B.A. Baracus in the remake of The A-Team. The studio has made no official announcement of Jackson being offered or accepting the role. Liam Neeson is playing Col. John “Hannibal” Smith and Bradley Cooper (The Hangover) will play Lt. Templeton “Faceman” Peck.
Jackson has had previous experience in film and TV, with roles in Never Surrender, Hell’s Chain and The King of Queens. The A-Team is in pre-production, and is set for a June, 2010 release date. Jackson will fight at UFC 107 in Memphis, against fellow Ultimate Fighter coach Rashad Evans. If Jackson has indeed taken the role, he may have to take some time off of fighting for shooting.
