Jamie Foxx Close to Playing Mike Tyson in Biopic.May 2, 2019
Jamie Foxx is one of the greatest and most diverse actors of our age. The actors have played characters who were true misunderstood villains like Electro of the 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' film and even played the energetic and prolifically exceptional Ray Charles Robinson in the 2004 Biopic Ray.
Now Foxx is heading toward or a step closer to tackling on of his most prolific roles yet and that is playing real-life Heavy Weight boxer and champion Mike Tyson.
For at least a decade now, Foxx had expressed his desire to play Mike Tyson on the big screen. Well, for at least two years, Foxx had hinted at being eyed to play the part of portraying Tyson in a biopic.
Today, Foxx went to his Instagram page and released a picture of himself and Mike Tyson with a caption that read "#TheJourneyBegins" and "One Step Closer".
The picture and caption hints that Foxx may be being coached by Tyson to bring his likeness to the big screen effectively, which may be the last step. This or Paramount is one step closer to taking on the biopic or greenlighting the biopic for the film.
All the pieces are in place for the film to be effectively made. We got Foxx and Tyson with Martin Scorsese to direct the film.
All that is left is a greenlight to the film to be put in place.
