Mr. T Called For Jury Duty

    Pity the prospective juror named Mr. T.

    He showed up for jury duty, then was dismissed after hours of down time — which he used to sign autographs and pose for pictures.

    Mr. T was called for jury duty at Cook County Circuit Court on Monday. The Chicago native said he enjoyed fulfilling his civic responsibilities, even though he found — like countless others — that hours can pass before a judge decides to dismiss you.

    He showed up for jury duty in camouflage pants, a T-shirt and a longer version of his usual Mohawk haircut.

    Mr. T is best remembered for the 1980s TV series "The A-Team" and as Clubber Lang in "Rocky III," which his catch phrase come from: "I pity the fool."
