Mr. T – Back In the 80s
Mr. T – pitying fools since the 80s. We know Mr. T, but no one knows him by his real name, which is Lawrence Tureau. For some reason, Mr. T just doesn’t strike us as a Lawrence. Anyway, in 1980, Mr. T was spotted by Sylvester Stallone while he was participating in a “toughest bouncer” competition. He was invited to audition for a small role in Rocky. Stallone and the rest of the crew and cast fell in love.
They loved him so much that he was cast as the main antagonist. And his career was thus born. By the time he gained prominence, it became evident that Mr. T was a fitness freak. Known for his tough demeanor and guns (sculpted by countless hours at the gym), he quickly became an icon in the fitness world, often discussing exercise techniques and the methodology of getting ripped. Although his clothing style had its own eccentricity, spandex weren’t his deal.
Mr T – Today
Since Mr. T had his big break in the early 80s, he has successfully entrenched himself in the show biz bedrock and has even become sort of a cultural icon. Over the decades, Mr. T has appeared in commercials for numerous companies, including Snickers, RadioShack, and Comcast. He has had a pretty steady presence on the screen. His last appearance was in 2017, where he competed on Dancing with the Stars.
Also, when it comes to his fitness guru-ness, he has not let up, not even a little bit. He’s now 67, and he still hits the gym all the time and he still packs some major muscle. We would ‘not’ want to mess with him. Although confirmation of this information is elusive, some sources indicate that his daily workout includes 50 push-ups, 50 squats, 1.5 miles of running, 15 minutes of punching bag work, 50 jumping jacks, and 100 sit-ups. Wow.
