Quinton Rampage Jackson joining the A-Team?

UFC Rampage vs EastmanIt looks like we have a potential candidate for the B.A. Baracus role in the movie adaptation of the 80's television show The A-Team. UFC fighter Quinton Rampage Jackson mentioned on The Jimmy Kimmel Show that he was in the running for the role made famous by Mr. T.

Looking at the photo, it's easy to see why he's in the running. He's already got the pecks and the chain. If you check out the video after the link, he's even got the attitude. Just give him a mohawk and he'll be set.

The planned release for the feature film is June 12, 2009. It will be produced by 20th Century Fox and Universal Studios and is to be directed by John Singleton (Boyz In The Hood, Shaft, 2 Fast 2 Furious).

The question is: can the UFC fighter act? And if he can't act, then can he at least act like Mr. T.?

[Thanks, Ryan!]

I don't know if anyone here pays attention to MMA, but Rampage is a personality plus. He is oozing with charisma, naturally funny, and would be a great comedic actor. Check out the Ultimate Fighter this year--he's fantastic.

Does he really need to be able to say anything other than "I pity the fool" and look menacing!
