Mr. T, the former star of TV show “A-Team”, says he is ready to act in “Rocky VI” after he last acted in “Rocky III” 23 years ago.

According to contactmusic.com, Mr. T says he is eager to return to the franchise even though he is fighting lymphoma cancer.

He says: “I’m up for anything. We start filming next year. I’ve been training a bit so I’ll be in shape. I still go to the hospital to keep (my cancer) under control. There’s no cure but I’m doing well. When I got cancer I found out who my real friends were. Hollywood turned its back on me but Sylvester (Stallone) remained a great buddy.”
