Mike Tyson wants no less than an Academy Award winner, Jamie Foxx to play him in a biopic. The championship boxer recently told the Associated Press that he’s actually spoken to Foxx about the role.
“Me and Jamie Foxx have been talking and he’s willing to take that role and portray me as Mike Tyson, doing my life story,” Tyson said. ”I think he’s splendid because he’s really up to par. I think he would do a magnificent job.”
Further brainstorming of the project will “happen very shortly,” Tyson added.
“I saw him the other night and we discussed it. He doesn’t have the physicality but he will. He’s able to … get bulky, so he’s capable of doing it in the future.”

Jamie Foxx is really excited to find out I am from Texas.
He is from there, too, and like most people who move out of the Lone Star State, he is more than happy to talk about the place where he grew up. During our conversation he will reference Texas somewhere close to a dozen times. Foxx will even refer to himself as “Terrell, Texas” at one point when speaking about the simple, honest values of his hometown, which he believes allowed him to find and maintain success in Hollywood. He has lived in California now a decade longer than the 18 years he spent growing up in the country hamlet about 30 minutes east of Dallas, and even though he is sitting in his plush mansion in Ventura County, northwest of Los Angeles, during our talk, he will go so far as to say “Listen man, we’re in Texas,” as if his whereabouts actually did momentarily slip his mind, because home is where the heart is, you know.
