|Claim to Fame: Played B. A. Baracus on TV’s The A-Team, boxer Clubber Lang in the movie Rocky III.
Investing Resume: Though it’s unclear if Mr. T owns stocks, either actively or through a money manager, he’s clearly one of America’s most high profile gold bugs. By most accounts, the gold jewelry he donned during his heyday in the 1980s was worth about $300,000 at the time. He’s been buying gold since 1977.
The Payoff: Strangely enough, Mr. T has been pretty vocal lately about his feelings of a gold bubble. As the pop-culture icon told Bloomberg TV just this week, when he was younger he thought that nothing could beat the yellow stuff. Mr. T proclaimed “… the Incas or the Mayans, they said gold was the sweat from the sun, or the tears, you know?” and that “Gold was special. Gold was the gift the three wise men brought to Jesus!” Now, however, Mr. T says “I’m about to tell other people it’s time to sell.”
