THE A-Team director Joe Carnahan has dismissed rumours a feud with MR. T forced producers to scrap plans for the star's cameo appearance in the big screen remake.
Two actors from the original TV series, Dirk Benedict and Dwight Schultz, make brief appearances in this year's (10) all-new film version, which sees a new generation of stars take on the famous characters.
Mr. T is replaced by Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson in the role of B. A. Baracus, and the former wrestler admits he was "disappointed" the original actor didn't make a cameo appearance.
He says, "It would have been cool if he could have been involved. I'm disappointed (he was not)."
But Carnahan is adamant Mr. T's omission was not a snub - they made a mutual decision not to include him in the film.
He says, "I thought it was a nice nod to the history and I thought it was nice for everybody... T and I have spoken and I've showed him a lot of the movie... I thought if we couldn't use him in a really cool way it wasn't worth it and I think (in) his mind he is B. A. - who else is he going to play?"
