Why you won't see Mr. T in the A-Team movie

I Pity the Fool, the new reality series in which Mr. T helps out people in need with his no-nonsense wisdom, belief in God, and artful way of putting the words "jibba" and "jabba" together like no other human being can, debuts this evening on TV Land at 10 pm. If you miss it, don't fret, because according to my Tivo the episode will repeat about fifty billion times after that. Also, the premiere episode is still available to watch in full on Yahoo. TV Guide has a Q and A with the iconic tough guy where he talks about getting and subsequently beating cancer, and how he was offered a role in the still up in the air A-Team movie, but not the role of B.A. Baracus. He immediately turned down the non-role. Also, apparently George "Hannibal" Peppard wasn't a fan of Mr. T, and none to happy that Mr. T made more money than he did on the series. Oh, and he still watches The A-Team, at least when he's not listening to the Bible on tape.
