Go to just about any convention on the Eastern seaboard, and you will likely run into a very funny gentlemen cosplaying as Mr. T, who will often be carrying a comically oversized rocket launcher or box of Mr. T cereal. That gentleman is Macdaniel Macleod, and according to his Facebook Page, you better say he’s the greatest B.A. Baracus cosplayer:

[quote]For me every day is a Pity Party!!!I Pity the Fool that don’t say that I’m the greatest B.A Baracus impersonator in the world GRRRR. I am a professional Mr.T, BA Baracus, Clubber Lang, Nite Elf Mohawk impersonator, Cosplayer, Actor, Model, Bouncer, Bodyguard, and Motivational speaker. My hobbies include martial arts, body building, and drawing. If you have a problem and no one else and can’t hire “The A-Team” at least you can hire BA Baracus![/quote]
I’ve run into Macdaniel at two or three cons over the past year (check out the photo of me posing with him below), and the guy is just flat-out hilarious. He’s friendly, accomodating, willing to pose for countless photographs, and he is always in character. In fact, one of the best things about his Mr. T impression is how much it actually sounds like Fat Albert! Macdaniel is a great dude and a fantastic Mr. T cosplayer. I pity the fool who don’t love this guy!

Jeff is the defining voice of his generation. Sadly, that generation exists only in an alternate dimension where George Lucas became supreme overlord of the Earth in 1979 and replaced every television broadcast and theatrical film on the planet with Star Wars and Godzilla movies. In this dimension, he’s just a guy from New England who likes writing snarky things about superheroes, monsters, and robots.
