While rumours of Dwight Schultz and Dirk Benedict appearing in small roles in the new film have been around for a while it seemed somewhat natural that 20th Century Fox would think to approach one of the most iconic actors of the 80s, but it didn’t happen.

Personally I find these cameos a touch distracting and I can imagine nothing worse than Mr T. appearing as a car salesman or desk bound cop in the new film – or even worse as B.A. Baracus Snr… But seriously the man appears not have aged in the last twenty years so they could have cast him instead of Quinton Jackson so kudos to Mr T. for turning down the money and opting to give his blessing to the new film.

Now, if only he would stop  hawking World of Warcraft.
