TV Shows“The A –Team”
1Distinctive, gruff, dramatic voice
2Mohawk haircut and beard
3Wearing gold chains
4Frequent line "I pity the fool..."
1As an actor, I'm more versatile than most people realize. I could play Hamlet, even though I look more like King Kong.
2[on the new movie version of The A-Team (2010)] There is only one A-Team. That's why me or any of the other guys won't do it. It won't be like the original. When we did it no one got hurt. There will be people dying in this one and there will be sex. Not R-rated sex but sex scenes. They are going in a different direction. If they don't want me as B.A., then I'm not going to settle for second best.
3[on appearing in The Expendables (2010)] I'm waiting for the call. But it sounds like a "Dirty Dozen" type of movie. Besides, why would I want to be in another team? I was in the best one.
4[on Rocky Balboa (2006)] I was asked to do it. Not do a fight scene but appear in a cameo. But it wouldn't work out scheduling wise. I thought it was good but the fighter in it was weedy. The first Rocky (1976) and Rocky III (1982) are the best.
5Today's action stars, they're not a team. They're in it for themselves. They may be A-Listers but they are not The A-Team (1983).
6I pity the fool who don't read it [the Mr T Comic]! It's gonna be pure gold!
7You're arguing over $45? My lunch cost $45!
8I think about my father being called 'boy', my uncle being called 'boy', my brother, coming back from Vietnam and being called 'boy'. So I questioned myself: "What does a black man have to do before he's given the respect as a man?" So when I was 18 years old, when I was old enough to fight and die for my country, old enough to drink, old enough to vote, I said I was old enough to be called a man. I self-ordained myself Mr. T so the first word out of everybody's mouth is 'Mr.' That's a sign of respect that my father didn't get, that my brother didn't get, that my mother didn't get.
9As a kid, I got three meals a day. Oatmeal, miss-a-meal and no meal.
10When I was growing up, my family was so poor we couldn't afford to pay attention.
11I pity the fool... [his trademark quote]
12I believe in the Golden Rule - The Man with the Gold... Rules.
13[Playboy magazine - September 1983] I am the best bodyguard, because I'll take a bullet, I'll take a stab wound, I'll take a hit upside the head; I'm like a Kamikaze pilot; The President got shot because his men relaxed.
1Played The Bearded Lady in Freaked. During filming, he left production and took a plane back home to Chicago. The filmmakers called him and asked why he left the set. His answer was "I don't wanna wear the dress no more.".
2WWE Hall of Famer.
3Fans often dubbed his "Sgt. B.A. Baracus" from The A-Team (1983) as standing for "Bad Ass" or "Bad Attitude".
4Defeated Kevin Sullivan at Starrcade 1994.
5Has frequented Harry Caray's restaurant in Chicago. One waiter described Mr. T as a generous tipper who would bring his own golden eating utensils. Often, he'd bring his mother with him. While Mr. T was friendly toward would-be autograph seekers, there was one cardinal rule: do NOT disturb him while he was eating.
6Derived his signature hairstyle when an attempt to shave his hair into a "T" failed. He adopted the mohawk look instead, taken from a National Geographic photo of a Mandika warrior in Mali.
7Stopped wearing his trademark gold chains as of 2005 because of the Katrina devastation.
8If you ask him what his real name, he will tell you, "My first name is 'Mr', my middle name is 'period', last name is 'T'".
9Was once parodied on the animated G.I. Joe series of the 1980s with a character called "Mr. C", who was a spokesman for the evil Cobra Cable Network (the character then joined G.I. Joe after the Cobra Cable 3 Network was destroyed).
10Compiled a 4-0 Shoot-Wrestling Record.
11"Rowdy" Roddy Piper mentioned that he and other fellow wrestlers legitimately disliked Mr. T, because he was an actor coming into wrestling, and had not paid his dues as a professional wrestler.
12Hulk Hogan wrote in his autobiography that Mr. T almost ruined the main event of the first Wrestlemania, because when he arrived, security would not let his entourage into the building. Mr. T was ready to skip the show until Hogan personally talked him out of leaving.
13When he and Hulk Hogan appeared in 1985 on Saturday Night Live (1975), they were promoting the World Wrestling Federation's WrestleMania (1985) pay-per-view show. They stayed mostly in character, but during a "Fernando's Hideaway" segment (Billy Crystal), were unable to do so during most of that skit.
14Voted by a BBC-run poll the fourth most influential American in history, behind Homer Simpson, Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King.
15Boxed "Ace" Cowboy Bob Orton on WWF's Saturday Night Main Event in 1985 and was subsequently whipped by Orton and Rowdy Roddy Piper with a belt.
16While a homeowner in Lake Forest, Illinois, he clearcut nearly 100 trees located on his 7 1/2 acre property, igniting a feud with neighbors and town officials. Because of his actions, landowners of the town are prohibited from cutting down trees, even on their own property, without a permit.
17Doesn't drink alcoholic beverages.
18Occasionally appears as Conan O'Brien's special guest and partner in various comedy sketches on Late Night with Conan O'Brien (1993) (2001).

20Diagnosed with cancer in 1995 at age 43. Beating the disease in 2001 at age 49.
21Once worked as a bouncer and a bodyguard to Steve McQueen, Muhammad Ali and Diana Ross.

25He had a daughter in 1971 with Phyllis Clark.
