Jamie Foxx Will Play Mike Tyson In A Limited Series
Jamie Foxx is one of my favorite actors! Been a fan of him since way back in the day and think he is super talented and an all around actor and he’s got big things on the way.
According to Variety, Jamie Foxx is set to play boxing legend Mike Tyson in a new biographical limited series. It’s going to be directed by Antoine Fuqua and executive produced by Martin Scorsese. It will be titled simply Tyson and the series is going to span the whole of Tyson’s life. Although it is not attached to a streaming network yet, it has been approved by Mike Tyson and he is excited to work with Jamie Foxx who will also executive produce and star in the series.
I can’t wait to watch this! It will surely not disappoint.
The project will "span the life" of Tyson, with Martin Scorsese behind the camera. "I have been looking to tell my story for quite some time,” the boxer said. "I look forward to collaborating with Martin, Antoine, Jamie and the entire creative team" https://t.co/vH8JhXk6WU— The Hollywood Reporter (@THR) March 22, 2021
