Looks like Joe Carnahan might have found his B.A. Baracus for The A-Team as the film gets ready to shoot in Vancouver.
According to the Vancouver Sun, Ultimate Fighting Championship brawler Quinton "Rampage" Jackson has won the coveted role, and has arrived in the city alongside Bradley Cooper (who's playing Face).
While there hasn't been an officially announcement yet - and this is still technically rumour until we get confirmation - it looks like Jackson is the man for the job, despite a pretty limited acting resume.
He's has mostly small roles in the likes of The Midnight Meat Train, but he can certainly defend himself - and, as, a bonus - is known for his love of large gold chains. Cue money saved by the costume department!
And he's also been considered for the BA role in the past, back when John Singleton was slated to direct it.
Now all we need is a solid sighting of Liam Neeson as Hannibal for for Carnahan to lock in a Howlin' Mad Murdock…

Know Jackson's smack down work? Is he a good choice? We pity the fool who doesn't speak up!
