Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson in The A-TeamUh oh. It seems that someone in movie world is believing their own hype and acquiring a bad rep before they've even made a proper name for themselves. Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson, who plays Sgt. B.A 'Bad Attitude' Baracus in the forthcoming A-Team film, has been causing some trouble on set, and even going so far as to denounce the ancient and noble profession of acting as 'gay'.

As reported by the LA Times, Jackson, famous for being an Ultimate Fighting Champion (the guy can cause some damage, apparently) has decided that having a lead role in a $100-million movie, and the pampering that involves, just isn't tough enough for him...

It seems that someone in movie world is believing their own hype and acquiring a bad rep before they've even made a proper name for themselves. Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson, who plays Sgt. B.A 'Bad Attitude' Baracus in the forthcoming A-Team film, has been causing some trouble on set, and even going so far as to denounce the ancient and noble profession of acting as 'gay'.

As reported by the LA Times, Jackson, famous for being an Ultimate Fighting Champion (the guy can cause some damage, apparently) has decided that having a lead role in a $100-million movie, and the pampering that involves, just isn't tough enough for him:

"Acting is kind of gay... It makes you soft. You got all these people combing your hair and putting a coat over your shoulders when you're cold."

Poor lamb. At least his other antics show that he's intent on resisting the encroaching softness that stardom brings. First off, he took on a bunch of crew members for an on-set battle, because "I've been wanting to punch them for real for a while" (although he held back from delivering his trademark body slam, which has the combined power of three car crashes).

If that wasn't enough he offered out the UFC President for questioning his choice to leave the UFC for a while to concentrate on acting, and had a scrape with a crew member who insinuated (apparently as a joke) that Jackson might be gay. Talk about anger issues...

It's unknown whether Jackson has read co-star Bradley Cooper's remarks on his suitability for the role made famous by Mr. T but, when he does, perhaps Cooper should order a few gallons of drugged milk.

Cooper, who plays Faceman, told the LA Times "In my opinion, he's the best B.A. there could be. It feels like a real coming out moment for Rampage." Some fool is going to be pitied for that remark...
