Mr. T has revealed his love for Winter Olympic curling, insisting "curling is cool, fool!"
The actor and former professional wrestler has been cheering on the USA men and women's teams via his social media.
The men's team reached the quarter-finals after beating Great Britain earlier on Thursday and 65-year-old Mr. T - real name Lawrence Tureaud - congratulated his compatriots.
"Congratulations to John and the US Men's curling team on beating Great Britain to advance to the metal (sic) round. Stay Focused. #curlingiscoolfool #TeamUSA," he said.
After the women's team failed to qualify for the knock-out rounds, Mr. T said: "Ladies you tried very hard tonight but came up short. You're still winners in my book and I'm so proud of what you have accomplished. #curlingiscoolfool #TeamUSA."
He then tweeted: "Alright US Men's curling team it's all up to you now. I'll be watching and cheering you guys on. Play hard but play smart! Go USA! #curlingiscoolfool #TeamUSA."
Mr.T shot to fame in the 1980's as boxer Clubber Lang in the Rocky III movie, before cementing his character as B. A. Baracus in the '80s television series the A-Team.
