Jamie Foxx to Play Mike Tyson in Biopic

Posted: July 31st, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Jamie Foxx to Play Mike Tyson in BiopicSubmit Comment
Having already played a supporting role in the Muhammad Ali biopic, Jamie Foxx is now ready to take on another boxer, Mike Tyson, in an untitled biopic that Terence Winter (The Wolf of Wall Street) will write.

It's still not clear which parts of Tyson's life the movie will focus on and a studio has yet to board the project. HBO previously took on Tyson's story in a 1995 movie, called "Tyson," starring Michael Jai White.

With all the success in his life, Tyson has also become known for his troubles, including biting off Evander Holyfield's ear, serving a six-year prison sentence for rape and filing bankruptcy in 2003 after the death of his young daughter.

I hate to say this but Foxx is to smarte to play Tyson's role. It will affect him irreversibly.

This will be unintentionally funny as sh*t. Foxx talking like Mike, with that lisp. It will be his greatest character since Wanda on IN LIVING COLOR.

Well, Foxx has the big buck teeth perfect for eating corn through a wooden fence and chomping off ears, and the rape scene should be an all-time new low for the guy who starred in Stealth.

Hes completely wrong for the part. Hes half as talented as will smith and he BARELY pulled off ali. Mostly

Foxx cant act. Im sorry he just cant. Not in the traditional dramatic sense. He CAN do impressions well, which in brief bursts can seem like acting. But you cannot lead a dramatic movie on an impression.

And before everyone tells me what about RAY? That movie did not require any range and I still couldnt take him seriously in that either.

I am constantly brought back to thinking how much better COLLATERAL would have been with someone more talented in foxx's place. Easy answer would be denzel. That would have been an AMAZING movie then
