But of particular note for Memphians is the involvement of hometown hero Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, who is reprising the B.A. Baracus role made famous by one Mr. T.
Rampage, who rose to superstar status among the ranks of UFC fighters — itself the hottest ticket in combat athletics — looks to make the leap to the mainstream. The A-Team is his big break. Judging by the trailer, it's going to make a bazillion dollars and could very well catapult him toward the bankability of another wrestler-turned-actor, the Rock.
Plus, The A-Team might actually be good — it's directed by Joe Carnahan (Narc) and costsars Liam Neeson (Hannibal, he loves it when a plan comes together), Bradley Cooper (Faceman), Sharlto Copley (Murdock), Jessica Alba, and Patrick Wilson.
