TV hardman Mr. T has slammed "The A-Team", the film adaptation of the TV series of the same title, for featuring too much sex and violence. The 58 year old played the original BA Baracus in the hit 1980s TV show but rejected a cameo role in the upcoming movie, starring Liam Neeson and Bradley Cooper.

And after seeing a preview of the film, he admits he's shocked with how graphic it is. Mr. T says, "People die in the film and there's plenty of sex 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."

He adds, "It was too graphic for me. I've no doubt it will do big business at the box office but it's nothing like the show we turned out every week."

"The A-Team" will open wide in U.S. theaters starting June 11.

Couldn't agree more and I'm so glad there's someone with enough self respect and guts to turn down a cameo on principle! Best of luck and good for you T.

Does this surprise anyone? The Man (Mr. T) is right. His show was made for the kids that wanted something to watch every week. They purposely showed the bad guys running from the explosions that would disable their vehicles or send them flying through the air. Even Mr. T's WOW weapon does 0 (zero) damage when used. He walks in the path of his convictions.

T's got a point. Nowadays, writers don't know how to make something interesting without "t 'n a" all over the place. The 80's might be outdated at this point, but at least you can say they 80's produced a ton of original material. Now, 9 out of 10 projects are remakes, sequels, prequels or adaptations.
