Mr. T has signed on to host a home renovation series called "I Pity the Tool" for DIY Network.

Mr. T and his famed mohawk could be taking a sledgehammer to a home near you.

The 62-year-old former "A-Team" star has signed on to host a home improvement series, aptly named "I Pity the Tool," for the DIY Network, according to a video tweet from the network Thursday.

"I'm going to be smashing and bashing, knocking down things, tearing down things. Then I'm going to build it up," Mr. T says in the video announcement.

Born Laurence Tureaud, Mr T. will head to Chicago to help families rebuild their homes. He joins other stars like Vanilla Ice and William Shatner, who have also recently been given their own DIY series.

The show will debut later this year.
