TheDailyBeast: Crazy Celebrity Name Changes

Laurence Tureaud: Mr. T

Celebrity tough guy Mr. T wasn’t always known by a single letter. Born Laurence Tureaud, it wasn’t until he became a bouncer that his “Mr. T” persona began to come to life.

Mr. T eventually grew so famous for his strong-man image that he began to enter strength and boxing competitions, well aware of his own fire. “I just feel sorry for the guy who I have to box. I just feel real sorry for him,” he told "Today" before a match.
