Mr. T denies slamming “A-Team” remake as too violent, too sexual


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: So did Mr. T diss the new “A-Team” or not?

It has become a “did he” or “didn’t he” debate in the wake of an article, credited to WENN, claiming that the original B.A. Baracus dismissed the big-budget remake (in theaters tomorrow) as too violent and way too sexual. The later claim makes no sense. We’ve seen the “A-Team” remake, and there is NO sex in the film, just some suggestive dialog between Bradley Cooper and Jessica Biel. As for the violence, yes it is more extreme than the TV show, where precious few villains actually died. Heck, it was network television in the 1980s. Carnage was not commonplace.

But now reps for Mr. T are denying that he has said a single thing about the new film, and actually claims that he has not seen the film, so would be unable to comment.

“Mr. T has not seen the film and he did not make the comments attributed to him in several Internet articles,” said the actor’s lawyers, in a prepared statement. “Mr. T appreciates (the) request for an interview, but at this time, particularly because he has not seen the film, he is not giving interviews on it.”

Wait, Mr. T has attorneys?

Needless to say, Mr. T’s endorsement isn’t going to help or hurt “The A-Team.” It is strange that two of the remaining three original A-Team members appear for cameos (George Peppard, who played Hannibal in the show, died in 1994), while Mr. T does not.

Maybe he’s saving his strength for a “Rocky III” remake, or a Clubber Lang spin-off film. Now THAT I’d pay big money to see.
