Jamie Foxx has been cast to play Mike Tyson in a bio-pic, according to Variety.

Jamie has been impersonating Mike for years. During an appearance on Live With Kelly and Michael back in May, Jamie expressed his interest in the project. He said, "I got a chance to hang out with Mike when Mike was at his height and I watched [him] go from his height to where he is now, and I talked to him about doing his story. I had my makeup artist dress me up as Mike Tyson… People were literally coming up asking for autographs. So hopefully, Mike, if you’re listening, let’s make history.
