HUMBOLDT PARK — A Humboldt Park dance studio had a couple of special visitors this week.

In preparation for his appearance on ABC's "Dancing With The Stars," Mr. T visited Duet Dance Studio, at 2412 W. North Ave., to show off his moves.

The famous actor and retired wrestler, perhaps best known for his catchphrase "I pity the fool!" in "Rocky III," was joined by professional dancer and show partner, Kym Johnson.

Sadly, we don't have the inside scoop on whether the Chicago native has what it takes to outshine his competitors. The studio couldn't be immediately reached for comment Friday afternoon.

The 24th season of "Dancing With The Stars" premieres March 20.
