"People die in the film and there's plenty of sex," he said. "But when we did it no one got hurt and it was all played for fun and family entertainment. These seem to be elements nobody is interested in anymore."
Did you know the guy had such an issue with content like this? Despite always looking like a bad ass, Mr. T is a born-again Christian and has always represented good values and been a good influence on kids through TV appearances and cereal boxes. The increase of sex and violence should be more of a draw to others, though. Mr. T does acknowledge the movie will "do big business at the box office" but admitted that it was just too graphic for him. Unfortunately, he didn't use his trademark phrase and say that he pities the fool who'll go see it.
Mr. T starred on The A-Team series as Bosco "B.A." Baracus, a role being played on the big screen by UFC fighter Quinton "Rampage" Jackson. The movie adaptation opens this Friday. Are you any less likely to see it now that Mr. T does not endorse it?
