Mr. T -- (born May 21, 1952, as Laurence Tureaud, in Chicago, IL) is a former-bouncer and actor known for his roles as B. A. Baracus in The A-Team TV series and as Clubber Lang in Rocky III (1982), as well as for his professional wrestling appearances at WrestleMania and Saturday Night's Main Event. He also co-hosted Saturday Night Live with Hulk Hogan in 1985. Although he was portrayed as a professional boxer, he never competed professionally in boxing. Through his tough-guy image, Mr. T popularized the African Mandinka warrior hairstyle and gold jewelry (long before it was known as "bling").

While feuding with Roddy Piper through the mid-80s, the two developed legitimate heat (mostly because Mr. T felt that he was bringing star power and attention to the WWF while the rest of the locker room felt they did not need mainstream star power).

Nowadays, Mr. T (no relation) is regarded as an 80s icon, which is a status for which he will often portray in good humor for comedy spots, mostly on commercials or in numerous visits to Late Night with Conan O'Brien.
