Actor doesn't think new movie can do justice to cult show


Mr T isn’t happy that The A-Team is being remade for the big screen.

The hit US show, about a group of military veterans fighting off evil tyrants, ran for five seasons in the 1980s.

Mr T, 56, who played BA Baracus, doesn’t think the new cast will be able to recreate the magic.

‘I pity the fools who try to remake The A-Team,’ he tells Now.

‘You can’t duplicate a Rembrandt. Whoever plays me has some tough shoes to fill. But it’s more than being tough – it’s my charisma and everything. I’ll let my fans judge the movie.’

Mr T, real name Laurence Tureaud, thinks the cult series still stands the test of time.

‘I’m addicted to watching reruns of The A-Team,’ he adds. ‘I don’t have any vices at all. I don’t smoke, drink or do drugs.

‘In fact, the only vice I have is Miami Vice. Ha ha!’

The A-Team movie is due for release in 2010.
