Former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton Rampage Jackson lands the role of BA Baracus on the upcoming A-Team movie. He apparently beat out rappers The Game Ice Cube and 50 Cent for the role once carried by Mr. T.

If all go’s well (no more high speed chases down LA freeways), Jackson will be the first MMA star to land such a high profile role in a movie. This is no “Never Surrender”, the A-Team movie is being set up as a blockbuster. Filming has already begun in Canada and is expected to be released sometime next year.

UPDATE
MTV debunks the rumor,

Proving yet again that at least some of the folks at UK tabloid The Sun are lying liars, MTV has confirmed that UFC champ Quinton “Rampage” Jackson has not been cast as B.A. Baracus in the coming big screen adaptation of “The A-Team.” I’m not even going to link to the story, as these jokers don’t deserve the traffic.

What I CAN tell you is that I reached out to Jackson’s publicist who checked with the fighter’s manager, as Jackson himself is currently on hiatus. The response? “His manager said it wasn’t true.” Move along people. There’s absolutely nothing to see here.

    So is Rampage next to take time off to film a movie?? its says its already filming for it and doesnt Rampage have a fight in December against Evans? I hope this doesnt mess up his mind set but who knows maybe pretending to be a member of the A team will give him some extra edge in the fight. I pitty the fool who messes with me….

    articles states, 50 cent, ice cube and the game were up for the part.

    just wanted to point out that the first image is of common, not 50 cent, the other 2 are accurate.

    from left to right, common, ice cube, the game and rampage.

    Come on tom, Ice Cube? He's like 50 with no cut.

    I don't trust the SUN either, but "sometimes" they do get it right.

    I wonder if Rampage questions himself about ever getting the belt back. I avoided the fight with Machida to finsh his "fued" with Rashad and after watching Anderson destroy Forrest like no1 else has done he seem way less motivated IMO. I like Rampage an hope he still wants to go for it.

    heard this am from local radio KROQ that report(which they had been touting for 2 days) is incorrect and that Q will NOT play BA . Sad, too, cause he's wanted it since knowing the film was gonna be made. He woulda been awesome!
