A-Team Mr T

The actor and former wrestler, real name Laurence Tureaud, insists he'd never put his name to a product he doesn't use - because he never wants to appear as a fraud.

He tells HuffPost Live, "They offered me almost a million dollars in Japan to do a beer commercial and I said, 'No, I can't do it'. The guy said, 'No man, won't nobody see it (sic)'.

"First it was $700,000 and then they moved the price up. Why, because I said no... I don't drink for number one. If I drink that would be something else different. I mean don't get me wrong, I've tasted champagne, I've had beer before and what not, but I'm not into that."

Liam Neeson Doubts The A-team Will Return For Sequel


Liam Neeson A-Team

Liam Neeson is adamant The A-Team will not return to the big screen for a sequel after the 2010 movie failed to impress at the box office.

The Schindler's List star played cigar-chomping John 'Hannibal' Smith in the film adaptation of the cult 1980s hit show alongside Bradley Cooper, Quinton Jackson and Sharlto Copley.

Studio bosses put up a $110 million (£68 million) budget for the action adventure, but the film took just $177 million (£110) at the box office - and Neeson insists the lack of a huge profit means movie executives will have shelved any plans for a follow-up.

He tells Britain's Daily Express, "I don't think it made enough money. The studio don't want it."
