The former A-Team star has signed on to host a home renovation series called I Pity the Tool for DIY Network, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Each episode of the series will see Mr. T and his team " including HGTV Design Star winner and interior designer Tiffany Brooks break down walls and tear out old rooms to give a family a home makeover."

Mr. T found initially found success as a wrestler; he then parlayed his notoriety as a wrester to achieve superstardom in movies and as B. A Baracus in the A-Team. Now in his doddering old age he is seeking to reclaim the spotlight in a reality series.
Mr. T can hardly lift a sledgehammer, let alone tear down a house, and rebuild it. If the ageing star can replace a lightbulb without falling down and breaking his neck, that would be a major achievement.
I hope Mr. T`s team will do all of the heavy lifting and he will be restricted to uttering his familiar catchphrases after the house has been renovated:
I pity the fool who don`t like this home makeover!
No more jibba jabba, give it up for this renovated house!
