Jamie Foxx has always had fun impersonating the iconic “Iron” Mike Tyson, but now he has revealed he is going to take it to the next level. He recently confirmed that the Mike Tyson biopic is in the works. In a segment with Mark Birnbaum on his Instagram Live series, Catching Up With Mark Birnbaum, Jamie insisted that it is a “definitive yes” that the movie is finally happening. “Look, doing biographies is a tough thing,” he admitted. “Sometimes it takes 20 years to get them done. But we officially got the real ball rolling”.

Everyone remembers Foxx’s awe inspiring acting for the biopic of music legend, Ray Charles, and he is going to take the same steps in creating another memorable performance to bring Mike Tyson to the big screen.

“Every other day, I do 60 pull-ups, we do 60 dips, we do 100 push-ups…[but] I ain’t got no calf muscles, so we’re gonna have to get some prosthetics for that.” Around the 56:30 mark, he shows Mark some photos of how much he’s bulked up for the role thus far.
