Homo Say What? – UFC Fighter and Mr. T Wannabe: Quinton "Rampage" Jackson: "Acting is kind of gay."

The following comes from UFC fighter Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, who is playing the role created by Mr. T. in the movie remake of The A Team. The movie was filmed in Vancouver.  And remember.  This comes from a guy who gropes another guy while wearing speedos in front of thousands of people and he thinks acting is a bit too “gay”?

“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 [individual]! Vancouver strikes me as a San Francisco-kind of place. And I don’t want [individuals] getting ideas about me. I feel in my heart I’m the toughest [individual] on the planet. And I don’t want nothing changing my train of thought. If you don’t believe that when we step inside the octagon, it shows.”

Quinton. Enjoy your 10 minutes of movie fame. Once this movie flops, and it will, you won’t have to worry about anything. Except maybe what UPS store you’ll be working at.
