The first shot of Quinton “Rampage” Jackson as B.A. Baracus has finally hit the net as a promo picture of the cast has been released. The photo (which can be seen above) shows the new “A-Team” comprised of Bradley Cooper, Jackson, Sharlto Copley, and Liam Neeson.
Ice Cube was reportedly the first to be cast as B.A. Baracus, but later decided to back out of the role which opened up the opportunity for the former UFC light heavyweight champion to get the nod.
Most recently, 50 Cent told the media that he wanted to play B.A. Baracus as well.
Jackson retired from the sport of MMA amid the controversy over him taking the movie role which he admitted was a childhood dream of his.
