UFC light-heavyweight fighter Rampage Jackson makes his big screen acting debut this month as B.A. Baracus in a remake of the 1980s action TV show, The A-Team. But don’t expect to see Rampage in any Shakespearean roles anytime soon… or ever, really.
“Acting is kind of gay,” he told Chris Lee, of The Los Angeles Times. “[Acting] makes you soft. You got all these people combing your hair and putting a coat over your shoulders when you’re cold. I don’t want a coat over my shoulders! I’m a tough-ass (expletive)!”
Jackson filmed the movie with co-stars Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper and Jessica Biel in Vancouver, B.C. and wants to make sure everyone knows just how tough he is. “Vancouver strikes me as a San Francisco-kind of place. And I don’t want (expletive) getting ideas about me. I feel in my heart I’m the toughest (expletive) on the planet. And I don’t want nothing changing my train of thought,” said Jackson.
So, let’s sum this up, actors (gay), coats (gay) Vancouver and San Francisco (gay). Thanks, Rampage for clearing all that up. You’re in a Hollywood blockbuster that’s paying you ridiculous amount of money, leave the bad attitude in the ring.
