GeekTyrant and other sites are reporting (the original story apparently came from the notoriously full of sh’t Sun) that Rampage Jackson has been cast as B.A. Baracus in Joe Carnahan’s A-Team movie (which, though I hate to burst your bubble, is going to suck). It would make a lot of sense, in that Rampage Jackson is a big black guy who beats people up.
Most recently Jackson has been filming The Ultimate Fighter Season 10 in which he coaches opposite Rashad Evans. The Sun reports that he beat out 50 Cent, The Game, Tyrese Gibson, and Ice Cube for the role after he impressed film bosses with his “charismatic audition”. And by “charisma” I imagine they mean “dry humping.” (see videos below). In my apartment and/or crawl space, that also counts as “foreplay.”
Jackson will supposedly star opposite Liam Neeson as Hannibal and Brad Cooper as Faceman Peck (though I don’t believe either of those have been confirmed outside of the Sun, either). Reached for comment, an out-of-work black actor said, “So, you decided to cast an athlete and not a rapper this time, huh? That’s awesome, I’m glad I went to Juiliard. Anyhoo, I’m gonna head down to TBS to see if Tyler Perry’s new show is hiring, you a-holes.”
