Stars - they're just like us!

Mr. T shows up for jury duty in Chicago suburb

Turns out, even bodyguards-turned-actors have to show up for jury duty summons, and Lawrence Tureaud, better known as Mr. T, willingly appeared at the Rolling Meadows courthouse on Friday, reports the Daily Herald.

Mr. T said he didn't consider "playing hooky" on his summons: "That's not my style," he said. "I've got to set an example….I told the judge: I'll do my best to never let you down."

On his lunch break, the Rocky III star shook hands and posed for photographs with courthouse personnel and lawyers — all while bedecked in a sweatshirt and hat emblazoned with "FBI."

Mr. T was not picked to act as a juror in the case.
