Is he a good fit????
Jame Foxx Portraying Mike Tyson In New Biopic
The former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson has claimed that Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx is set to play him in a new biopic, through the magic of CGI.
Tyson told the Daily Mirror that Foxx would portray him in different stages of his life, aided by the technology used for the David Fincher fantasy The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
He also claimed Martin Scorsese would be involved in the proposed biopic.
“Me and Jamie Foxx are in discussion, and we gonna do it,” said Tyson, 48. “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.”
Foxx, 46, has reportedly asked Tyson for help training for the role.
Having previously impersonated Tyson, for comedy skits, he revealed an interest in portraying the boxer during an appearance on the US TV show Live with Kelly and Michael in May.
“I got a chance to hang out with Mike when Mike was at his height,” he said, “and I watched [him] go from his height to where he is now, and I talked to him about doing his story.
I think that story would be fantastic … and I had my makeup artist dress me up as Mike Tyson … People were literally coming up asking for autographs.
So hopefully, Mike, if you’re listening, let’s make history.”
You think he can pull it off???? This might be a good one.
