Heath Herring >>> Rampage Jackson.

Alright well, obviously there's basically no way to discuss this from an MMA point of view and the topic has no relevancy in fighting. BUT, considering Rampage is no longer a fighter...


Heath Herring is a much better actor than Rampage. Facial expressions and vocal tone he's about a 6/10, really not bad at all. If he worked on his enunciation and had a good director he could even be decent, convincing in a Dave Chapelle or Will Ferrel movie.

But wow is Rampage bad. Dry, predictable, comical on accident... like a 2/10. No glimmering ray of hope to be seen. BJ Penn is the same but luckily, he comes from money and seems to be dedicated to fighting at this point.

I don't see how Rampage is going to survive. I like him as a person and respect him as a fighter... but he's just plain talentless on the silver screen.



I really worry for his livelihood.

He makes me laugh on TUF though. ( Totally shite coach )

Although all of those funny bits might be the 1% that makes it out of the editing room... not so good.

Yeah, Herring was the best actor among the MMA crew for sure. It wasn't so much that he was great, but that BJ and Rampage looked like they were reading off of teleprompters and GSP's dubbing was like a Godzilla movie.

I laughed through that whole movie. Heath really wasn't near as bad as I thought he would be, he was pretty good and comparable to the horrible hollywood actors these days anyways. I think the main actor was prolly the worst. Isn't he the actual producer or whatever for the movie too?

I haven't seen the movie but if it's as bad/funny as you guys make it sound then you have to ask, what we're the producers of the ATeam thinking? ( Not that Mr T was an acting colossus or anything. )

Maybe we have to assume he's improved a little bit? Either that, or the AT movie is going to suck rotten eggs.

Did anybody see Keith Jardine in Gamer? He was a good actor. It helped he didn't actually have a line, just looked mean, held a gun etc.
Or Don Frye in ... that Johnny Depp movie about 50's gangsters. Again no lines, but looked good and menacing.
Thats the sort of actor mmafighters should be, look tough, shut up. Like white guys in Chinese Kung Fu movies.
Yes yes, not China Thailand, same roles

Though that's prob not the sort of money Rampage wants...

I think they picked him because basically he just has to play himself with a cool new mohawk.

Bobby Z still stands out as the best MMA cameo film. Liddell, Sylvia, Miletich, Lawler, Markham, Rothwell, Taktarov. And they somehow managed to act decently, and the movie was good.
