Mr. T is a personal favorite. Type cast, certainly, but for good reason. In our sitcom, Mr. T would go on a series of auditions for various roles for which he is unsuited. The role of
Annie in a stage production of “Annie,” for example. He could audition for the lead in a teen romantic comedy. At each audition, he’d show up as, well, Mr. T.
Obviously the show would entail a fictitious personal life, based loosely on Mr. T’s actual life (I guess) and his constant desire to find work. Perhaps he works at a fast-food drive-through window or as a bank teller. Hilarity ensues.
Imagine him trying out for the lead role in “Othello” or for the part of Dennis in “Dennis the Menace (“Mr. Wilson? You betta drink ya milk, fool!”). You can’t help but love Mr. T, so his struggles with finding a suitable job and paying the bills would be poignant and touching.
I was actually super excited about T’s role in “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.” Every time he said “Lockwooood!” I burst out laughing.
Here’s the beginnings of a sample script j33pd0g put together.
