Rapper 'The Game' Might Be The A-Team's B.A. Baracus?
I don't know why everyone is so anxious to find out casting on Joe Carnahan's The A-Team. This isn't the first time we've heard rumors about who might be playing the contemporary B.A Baracus. At one point it was rapper-turned actor Common who had emerged as the frontrunner. Now, according to our friend Wilson at BlackFilm.com, another rapper-turned-actor is being considered - The Game. I'm not sure where they even got this scoop, but they do mention that other possible candidates include Ice Cube and MMA fighter Quinton "Rampage" Jackson. So it doesn't look like The Game has been given this role just yet.
The Game, also known as Jayceon Terrell Taylor, made his acting debut opposite Tyrese Gibson in Waist Deep in 2006. He also appeared alongside of Common in Street Kings but hasn't done much other acting. Okay, so here's the thing, I know he's not the greatest actor, but first off, at least he's better than 50 Cent. Secondly, it's obvious with the other "candidates" that they want to pick someone who is a gritty, thug-like guy who may not be a good actor but has some "brute force" to him. I mean, look at Mr. T! We don't need a great actor to play this role. So if it is The Game in the end, then who really cares, this will still be badass!
