Mixed martial arts tough guy QUINTON 'RAMPAGE' JACKSON will play B.A. BARACUS in the movie adaptation of hit TV series THE A-Team, according to new reports.
Jackson has been spotted on the Vancouver, Canada set of the film and one reporter for the Vancouver Sun has seen the fighter sporting the chains Mr. T wore as the tough-talking TV character.
The much-anticipated new film features Bradley Cooper as Templeton 'Faceman' Peck and Liam Neeson as A-Team leader John 'Hannibal' Smith.
Jackson reportedly won the role of Baracus after a casting fight with rapper and Terminator Salvation star Common. He recently confirmed on late-night U.S. TV he was in the running for the role.
According to website MMAFrenzy.com, the A-Team role is the reason why Jackson has postponed a December (09) fight with Rashad Evans at UFC 107.
Many ticket-holders couldn't get into the O2 Arena show on Tuesday night (September 19th) because they didn't bring photo ID to match their booking.
An album re-release, a new song and a documentary mark the singer's legacy this year.
The actor plays the titular hero in the forthcoming adaptation.
