Mister T Pities the Fool that Wants Him to do an A-Team Cameo

8 Comments

According to Mister T himself, don’t expect to see a T cameo in Joe Carnahan’s upcoming “A-Team” feature film. Mind you, it’s not about the money, or so the jewel-encrusted one tells Latino Review during a visit to the gym. Yes, Mister T still goes to the gym. What, you think those muscles grow overnight? As to the cameo, Mister T just doesn’t, well, see the point.

He said it wasn’t about money, because he turned down the chance to appear in the film before that was even discussed. He said it just wouldn’t be right for him to be in it. If his B.A. isn’t the main guy, then why do it? What’s wrong with the film that they need him to make a cameo? Plus they would market the film with him being in it, and he didn’t want his friends and family to think he would have some big role when he wouldn’t. He told me he has nothing against the cast or even the fact that they’re doing a remake. But a cameo is just something he wasn’t interested in.

Dwight Schultz’s cameo is already confirmed, and Dirk Benedict has already said Yes. That leaves George Peppard, but unless Joe Carnahan knows how to raise the dead, that doesn’t look like it’s gonna happen. Of course, I wouldn’t put anything pass Hollywood, even black voodoo magic.

Mister T’s reason for not doing a cameo sounds a bit silly to me. I doubt if Carnahan and the movie will be trumpeting his cameo as a big part of the film, and it’s not like he has a lot going on at the moment. I’m just saying. Why not just do it? Then again, he is Mister T, and I’m not…

Carnahan’s “A-Team” arrives this Summer with Liam Neeson as Hannibal, Bradley Cooper as Faceman, Sharlto Copley as “Howling Mad” Murdock and UFC champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson as B.A. Baracus.

Listne up, chumps! Mister T is gonna teach you math even if he has to break you!

    It makes sense. And yes they would try and capitalize on him being in it. If only to get more buts in the seats after opening weekend like they did with Arnie and the Terminator Salvation cameo. I mean if you think about it, who’s he gonna play, B.A.’s father?

    He has nothing on, the guy does Snickers and World or Warcraft advertising, plus tons of other stuff. His image is actualy in the game right now and 11 million people are running around with his head on there character. The guy must be making huge amounts of money. I think he would get paid less if he did a movie role.

      Um I don’t think he makes money from people using his likeness in WoW, as it’s probably a hack. But you’re right about him being all over. His name is internationally known, and with all the nostalgia t-shirts and things like that with his face are in demand. Especially with the movie coming out. I kinda agree he may get paid less for doing the film, or at least not as much as most would think. And like I said who would he play? I mean a cameo of another built, black man with a mohawk. I’m sure that’d be a great scene. With T saying to BA “Nice Hair” and BA saying to T “Nice chains.” UH no.
