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.
