Jamie Foxx Bulks Up To Play Mike Tyson In New Film

Jamie Foxx has already revealed he’s got Mike Tyson’s voice down to a tee, now he’s got the massive body too.

Foxx is set to play Iron Mike in an upcoming biopic where he’ll play both young Mike and older Mike.

He’s been working on the project for years but finally it seems to be moving forward pretty quickly.

During a recent episode of ‘Catching Up with Mark Birnbaum’, Jamie revealed how he’s transforming his body to look just like Tyson – and he’s the absolute spitting image.

But just how’s he doing it? Well for the top half of his body, Foxx has been doing 60 pull ups, 60 dips, and 100 push ups daily.

As for the bottom half, Foxx admits they’re going to need prosthetics as he doesn’t have the bulk legs Tyson was famous, or infamous, for.

He added that he’ll be 216 pounds when shooting begins, and then to play Old Mike, he’ll ‘balloon to 225, 230 which will look like 250 on screen’.

Sounds like a truly exciting project!
