Looking at the above side by side, the resemblance between Jamie Foxx and Mike Tyson is uncanny, so it’s good to know Jamie Foxx is ready and willing to play Tyson in a biopic proposed by the former heavyweight champion himself.

“Me and Jamie Foxx are in discussion, and we gonna do it,” Tyson told The Mirror, adding that CGI would be used to enable Foxx to play the boxer at all stages of his career.

“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.”

Tyson also claims that Raging Bull director Martin Scorsese is interested in the project and said that Oscar winner Foxx had asked him to train him for the film.
