Quotes

  • As an actor, I’m more versatile than most people realize. I could play Hamlet, even though I look more like King Kong.
  • [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.
  • [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.
  • [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.
  • Today’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).
  • I pity the fool who don’t read it [the Mr T Comic]! It’s gonna be pure gold!
  • You’re arguing over $45? My lunch cost $45!
  • I 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.
  • As a kid, I got three meals a day. Oatmeal, miss-a-meal and no meal.
  • When I was growing up, my family was so poor we couldn’t afford to pay attention.
  • I pity the fool… [his trademark quote]
  • I believe in the Golden Rule – The Man with the Gold… Rules.
  • [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.
