Mr. T prefers a double-shot of espresso with two graham crackers, go figure


Back in November, Paul Davidson popped into his local Starbucks coffee shop and ended up in line right behind Mr. T. Unlike me, Mr. Davidson actually knew ahead of time what he was going to ask the former A-Team heavy. And the answer was worth waiting for.

(Via TV Squad: Mr. T likes espresso, fool!)

Mr. T has not disappeared from the scene entirely, however. TV Land announced [pdf] last September a new reality show starring the former A-Team heavy tentatively titled I Pity The Fool (capital "The" for some reason). More recent coverage.

    I wonder if T ever pauses just before drinking his double-shot, and wonders "Is this spiked? Am I going to wake up somewhere else, and learn I was flied in a helicopter all over the countryside being chased by (or chasing)badguys?"

    I don’t know Paul Davidson but that seemed like sort of a wankish thing to do.  Way to drag somebody back and pigeonhole them into a cliche they’ve probably been trying to escape for 20 years.

    According to IMDB, http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001558/ Mr T (Lawrence Turard) is currently filming a TV show entitled “I Pity The Fool”, and has a son named “T Junior”. He also does semi-regular photo ops in his A-Team outfit. The man isn’t trying to escape that cliche very hard.

    I personally would have asked him what on earth he was thinking when he made this:

    Hmmm…. Mr. T in Starbucks?

    Do you think he’s changing his name from Mr. T to Mr. Coffee?

    Sorry… couldn’t resist.
