Jamie Foxx to Play Mike Tyson in an Upcoming Biopic

Jamie Foxx is opening up about his upcoming biopic about boxer Mike Tyson.

The 52-year-old Oscar-winning actor, who won his Academy Award for his performance in the biopic Ray, says the long-rumored movie is still happening.

“It’s a definitive yes,” Jamie said during Mirk Birnbaum‘s Catching Up show on Instagram. “Look, doing biographies is a tough thing. Sometimes it takes 20 years to get them done. But we officially got the real ball rolling.”

“We want to show everybody evolves,” Jamie added. “I think when we lay the layer of Mike Tyson in this story, I think everybody from young and old will be able to understand this man’s journey.”

Jamie said there will be technology to make him look exactly like Mike.

“And then just the technology of how I’m gonna look, I guarantee you people will run up on me in the street, and ask for autographs, and think that I’m Mike,” he said. “Every other day, I do 60 pull-ups, we do 60 dips, we do 100 push-ups. I ain’t got no calf muscles, so we might have to get some prosthetics for that.”

Jamie attended the funeral of George Floyd last week with one of his very famous friends.

Warner Bros. Pictures Makes 'Just Mercy' Movie Free to Rent For Month of June

The flick centers on the world-renowned civil rights defense attorney Bryan Stevenson (played by Jordan) as he works to free a wrongly condemned death row prisoner (Foxx).

It continues, “For the month of June, Just Mercy will be available to rent for free across digital platforms in the U.S. To actively be part of the change our country is so desperately seeking, we encourage you to learn more about our past and the countless injustices that have led us to where we are today.”

Jamie Foxx Sings for Protestors at Rally for George Floyd

Jamie Foxx took the microphone at a rally to protest the killing of George Floyd at the hands of a white police officer.

The 52-year-old actor was in attendance at a protest on Monday (June 1) in San Francisco, Calif. While taking the microphone, Jamie sang a popular verse from Isaiah 54:17: “No weapons formed against me, shall prosper, it won’t work. No weapons formed against me shall prosper.”

Jamie also added about George Floyd‘s death and the police officer who was responsible for his death, “If that man can be handcuffed, if that man sit on that man’s neck for that long and feel comfortable about it, that means that he’s not afraid of what’s going to happen.”

This is not the first protest that Jamie attended in the past few days.

Jamie Foxx Joins the Protests in Minneapolis, Demands Justice for George Floyd

Jamie Foxx is currently in Minneapolis to join the social justice advocates in the Black Lives Matter protests following the death of George Floyd.

The 52-year-old Oscar-winning actor joined former NBA player Stephen Jackson at a press conference on Friday (May 29) at Minneapolis’ City Hall.

Jackson was a friend of Floyd, who was killed earlier this week while being arrested by cops.

“I’m here because they’re not fixing to demean the character of George Floyd, my ‘Twin,’” Jackson said during the press conference. “A lot of times when police do things that they know are wrong, the first they do is try to cover it up and bring up your background to make it seem like (what) that they did was worth it. When was murder ever worth it? But if it’s a black man, it’s approved. You can’t tell me when that man had his knee on my brother’s neck, taking his life away with his hand in his pocket that that smirk on his face didn’t say I’m protected.”

Jamie appeared at the press conference to show support and speak to the media.

“We’re not afraid to stand. We’re not afraid of the moment. And I think what you saw on television, to watch this man plead for his life… as I sit with my two daughters, my nephews who had just come from the grocery store, what it does it overcomplicates everything as a black man trying to tell his son or his daughter how to function in life,” Jamie said. “Even the things that we taught them don’t seem to work.”

“All I wanted to do today was let you know that I’m not a celebrity. I’m from Texas. These are my brothers. This means everything because at the end of the day, when we see you guys out here on the frontline, we want to let you know you got support,” he added.

During the press conference, it was announced that the police officer who kneeled on Floyd‘s neck has been charged with murder.
