Jamie Foxx received an Oscar in 2005 for acting as Ray Charles.
He is taking up one other American icon, Mike Tyson. Foxx has been engaged on an Iron Mike biopic for years and judging from this bulked up photograph, he is on the point to begin filming.
Foxx, who’s 52, will play each a younger and older Tyson.
To get in correct form for the youthful role, Foxx has been doing 60 pull-ups, 60 dips, 100 push-ups a day. The thin-legged Foxx is not going to even attempt to mimic the champ’s calves. These will probably be prosthetics.
Are you hyped for Foxx’s role of Tyson?
