Jamie Foxx on Playing Mike Tysonand
Mike Tyson's life has been eventful enough to account for something like three, maybe four Hollywood blockbusters. But we're still waiting on the first one, which has been rumored to be in the works for years. Despite the lag in production, though, there's apparently still no doubt who will be portraying the "most dangerous man on the planet,"— a man who's a legend in his own right, Men's Health former cover guy Jamie Foxx.

Legendary director Martin Scorsese is reportedly keen to helm the project, while Mike has also given Jamie a helping hand with his preparations. The insider told The Sun newspaper: "Mike knows it is Jamie's dream to play him and they have talked about gym work and how he could put him through his paces. But he was also convicted of rape in , and banned from the sport after biting a chunk out of his rival Evander Holyfield's ear.
