Default Hulk Hogan as the 5th member of The A-Team?

Why Hulk Hogan turned down role as 5th A-Team member
23rd Feb 2016 7:00 PM

HULK Hogan rejected the chance to star in 'The A-Team' "full time" because he felt like a referee between the show's stars Mr. T and George Peppard.

The professional wrestler appeared as himself in episodes 'Body Slam' and 'The Trouble With Harry' in the 1980s action-adventure TV series, but turned down an opportunity to extend his role because it was "no fun" being a mediator between the two stars, who infamously didn't get along.

In response to a fan who asked Hulk whether he had been approached to become the fifth member of 'The A-Team', he wrote on Twitter: "they wanted me full time for 2 more seasons but HULKAMANIAC was red hot,and I felt like the ref between T and George,no fun,crazyHH (sic)"

Mr. T, 63, played bling-loving tough guy B. A. Baracus in the series opposite the late George - who passed away in 1994 aged 65 - as cigar smoking Colonel John 'Hannibal' Smith, the leader of the renegade commandos.

But the pair didn't always get on and George once branded Mr. T - whose real name is Lawrence Tureaud - an "unprofessional loudmouth" and even blamed him for the demise of the programme, which told the story of four Vietnam war veterans who helped the innocent while on the run from the military after being jailed for a crime they didn't commit.

Hulk - who frequently referred to his fans as "Hulkamaniacs" - appeared in 'The A-Team' in 1985 and 1986 but they weren't his only appearances on the small screen.

The 62-year-old star featured in a 'Baywatch' episode called 'Bash at the Beach' - the same name as a former annual professional wrestling pay-per-view event produced by World Championship Wrestling (WCW).

He also starred as himself on the big screen in 'Gremlins 2: The New Batch' in 1990, sci-fi comedy 'Muppets from Space' in 1999 and more recently he voiced an animated version of himself for a cameo in TV series 'American Dad!'.
