Jamie Foxx to Play Mike Tyson in New Biopic: Report
Looks like Jamie Foxx will have to beef up for his next role.
Variety is reporting that the Academy Award winning actor is set to portray Mike Tyson in an upcoming untitled biopic. Terence Winter (Boardwalk Empire, The Sopranos, The Wolf of Wall Street) is set to provide the screenplay.
“Within a year to 18 months, we’re going to do the Mike Tyson story and he’s going to portray me, and now they have this new animation; because you know Jamie’s pretty much my age so he can’t portray me but they have this new system,” the legendary boxer told the paper.
