For several years now it has been Mr. T’s career that’s been dead, but never mind, I pity the fool that would try to get him into the movie version of 'The A-Team.' Crap. In keeping with some other 80’s action television stars, Mr. T told MTV that he would never do a cameo in a movie based on his most popular artistic endeavor. While claiming he has no hard feelings against the film’s producers, Mr. T said “it’s insulting me to ask me to be in it [as someone else]. It’s just like my ex-girlfriend saying ‘Why don’t you come out to dinner with my new boyfriend?’”
I guess that would depend on how hungry you are. Mr. T has been fasting for quite awhile. You’ve got to admire Mr. T’s commitment to his twenty year old character, but let’s be serious for a second. This is a guy who did pro-wrestling. He can’t claim artistic integrity. Take the money, Mr. T! The 'A-Team' was probably his last legitimate acting job and that ended almost 20 years ago. These days he does phone company commercials. It’s not Hamlet he’s talking about protecting, it’s a guy who wore gold chains and growled at the camera.
