Rant Of The Week: Godfather Vodka

9 10 2009

Ok, Hollywood now you’re just pissing me off.

I can deal with product placement in movies, as tacky and poorly handled as they often are. I’m fine with you making more money off of merchandising too. If someone wants to buy a Spider-Man action figure that’s their business, at least it’s tangentially related to the product (and where would itsjustsomerandomguy be without them). But when I have to walk down the aisle a see Godfather-brand vodka that’s where I draw the line. Read the rest of this entry »

First Photo: The A-Team

1 10 2009

A-Team

Thus far, all of the news about the new A-Team has come in bits and pieces, each actor for Joe Carnahan’s remake coming one soldier of fortune at a time. It all started with Liam Neeson’s casting as the team leader, Col. John ‘Hannibal’ Smith. Then Bradley Cooper as pretty-boy Lt. Templeton ‘Faceman’ Peck. After a long break and thousands of rumors, the role of B.A. Baracus was given to MMA fighter Quinton “Rampage” Jackson. Then, in a flurry, it closed with the casting of District 9‘s Sharlto Copley as Capt. ‘Howling Mad’ Murdock as well as the addition of a villain and female lead, Patrick Wilson and Jessica Biel. Then came the van. Now, after months of casting, the new A-Team has finally been photographed together thanks to Comingsoon.net. Read the rest of this entry »

The A Team

Even a Broken Clock Is Right Twice A Day: Rampage Jackson IS the New B.A. Baracus

8 09 2009

B.A. Baracus - Rampage Jackson(Um…both have a fondness for chains?)

A couple weeks ago I posted an article about how incredibly unreliable the British tabloids are in reference to announcements that Megan Fox was being cast in the next Batman film and that Robin Williams doing a Susan Boyle biopic. Literally as I was writing the article, The Sun printed a story saying that Rampage Jackson, the UFC fighter, was going to be taking the role of B.A. Baracus, made famous by Mr. T, in the A-Team movie due out next year. Out of the three stories, one ended up actually being true. Read the rest of this entry »
