New Star of The A-Team Is Kind of an A-Hole

Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, who plays B. A. Baracus in the upcoming A-Team remake, has some thoughts about acting vis-a-vis gayness, more specifically the inverse relationship of "time spent acting" and "hardness." In an interview with the LA Times which will certainly not come back to bite him in the ass, Jackson said:

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. I don’t want a coat over my shoulders! I’m a tough-ass.

For the record, Jackson’s day job is UFC fighting, which naturally does not make one soft. It makes one hard. So very hard:

So Jackson seems like a very cool, very accepting kind of person, you know? Just someone who totally secure in himself. I’d love to hear some more of his thoughts on the experience of filming a movie. Mr. Jackson?

Vancouver strikes me as a San Francisco-kind of place.

Of course it does.
