ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill. (AP) -- Lawrence Tureaud, better known as Mr. T, was in true form as he waited outside a suburban Chicago courthouse to be called for jury duty.

Sporting his usual Mohawk and wearing an FBI sweatshirt and hat, but not a gold chain, the star of "Rocky III" and TV's "The A Team" signed autographs and made his feelings known.

He said, "I pity the criminals today," as he explained he had been designated a potential juror for a trial scheduled for Friday.

The Daily Herald in Arlington Heights reports (http://bit.ly/1pRCTnW ) the 62-year-old Tureaud said he never considered "playing hooky" after receiving the jury summons to the Rolling Meadows court.

Mr. T said he understood his duty and said it's not his style to shirk responsibilities.

Tureaud wasn't picked as a juror.
