After his failed bid to join the NFL, Mr. T began working as a club bouncer in Chicago. Using lost jewelry found in the club, he began to wear gold neck chains and develop his Mr. T persona. He transitioned into working as a bodyguard, and did this for almost ten years. As he grew his reputation as a bodyguard, he began receiving contracts for higher-profile clients, such as designers, models, judges, politicians, athletes, and millionaires. Some of these high-profile clients he has guarded include Muhammad Ali, Steve McQueen, Michael Jackson, Leon Spinks, Joe Frazier, and Diana Ross, charging anywhere from $3,000 to $10,000 per day. One day, after spotting an unusual hairstyle on a Mandinka warrior in a “National Geographic” magazine, Mr. T decided to adopt the style as a statement about his African origins. It was incorporated into the persona of Mr. T.
His first appearance on television was when he was in his late twenties, on the NBC tough-man competition “Sunday Games” as part of the “America’s Toughest Bouncer” segment. He ended up winning the competition. He then competed for a second time, this time in the renamed competition “Games People Play”, also on NBC. It was his appearance on “Games People Play” in 1980 that reportedly inspired Sylvester Stallone to write the famous line “I don’t hate him but… I pity the fool” for the movie “Rocky III” (1982). Stallone also cast him as the main antagonist, Clubber Lang, in the film as well.
Subsequently, following his appearance in “Rocky III”, Mr. T enjoyed many other movie and television appearances, including the film “Penitentiary 2” (1982), the Canadian sketch comedy series “Bizarre”, and an episode of “Silver Spoons”. He also accepted the role of Sergeant Bosco “B.A.” Baracus on the television show “The A-Team”, co-starring George Peppard, Dirk Benedict, and Dwight Schultz, among others. “The A-Team” aired for four seasons, from 1983 to 1987. He is reported to have earned as much as $80,000 a week for his role on “The A-Team”. Also released in 1983 was the comedy film “DC Cab”, which also starred the likes of Paul Rodriguez, Marsha Warfield, and Irene Cara. The film performed modestly well at the box office, grossing $16 million against its $12 million budget.
