HOLD onto your hats ...TV legend MR.T's replacement in the new A-Team movie has been confirmed.
UFC fighter QUINTON 'RAMPAGE' JACKSON is set to fill the infamous role of BA Baracus in the forthcoming remake.
The 6,1" American is a mixed martial artist and a former UFC Light-Heavyweight title holder.
Like Mr.T he is a devoted Christian and he has appeared in several acting roles to date, however he is set to hit the big time with this movie.
LIAM NEESON and Nip/Tuck star BRADLEY COOPER are already confirmed for the film.
Neeson will play Hannibal, while Cooper will take on the role of Face.
Rappers THE GAME and 50 CENT had both been in the running for the role, and earlier this week it was rumoured that The Game was actually confirmed as the new BA.
However, studio execs finally picked the charasmatic UFC star to star in the film after weeks of auditions.
The film is currently being filmed in Canada and is set for release next year.
Let's hope Quinton lives up to his predecessor, he'll go down in history if he does...

It looks like a familiar face will be missing from the panel of judges on "American Idol" next season. Paula Abdul says her days of arguing with Simon are finito! Abdul broke the news on her Twitter page writing:
"With sadness in my heart, I've decided not to return to #IDOL. I'll miss nurturing all the new talent, but most of all ...being a part of a show that I helped from day 1 become an international phenomenon ... What I want to say most, is how much I appreciate the undying support and enormous love that you have showered upon me ... It truly has been breathtaking, especially over the past month ... I do without any doubt have the BEST fans in the entire world and I love you all."
Abdul had been involved in contract negotiations with Fox this summer hoping for a raise, but it looks like she and executives couldn't see eye-to-eye. Randy Jackson, Simon Cowell and Ryan Seacrest are all scheduled to return to next season. Seacrest says he is "shocked and saddened" by Paula's announcement.
The news comes on the heels of Fox's announcement that new judge Kara DioGuardi would be returning to the series for her second year. Fox quickly issued a statement regarding Paula's departure, writing:
"Paula Abdul has been an important part of the American Idol family over the last eight seasons and we are saddened that she has decided not to return to the show. While Paula will not be continuing with us, she's a tremendous talent and we wish her the best."
The upcoming season of "Idol" should prove to be an interesting one. Will the show still maintain its popularity without Abdul on the judges panel? We'll see.
