Biography

Quinton Jackson became a celebrity in the world of mixed martial arts in the early 2000s in both the UFC and in Japan's Pride Fighting Championships. Famous for his use of massive bodyslams, Jackson would eventually become the UFC Light-Heavyweight title holder. A natural showman, Jackson soon made the transition into acting in 2005, appearing in films like Confessions of a Pit Fighter, Bad Guys, and The Midnight Meat Train. Over the course of a few years, the fighter's diligence in the industry paid off, and he scored the role once played by Mr. T of Sgt. Bosco Baracus -- otherwise known as B.A. -- in 2010's big-screen adaptation of The A-Team. Roles in the action films Fire with Fire and Duel of Legends followed in 2012. ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi
