Love him or hate him, Mike Tyson is an American icon that has wormed his way into our culture and will likely stay there for centuries to come. This time around, he’ll be playing himself. Or rather he’ll be voicing himself on a new Adult Swim cartoon entitled Mike Tyson Mysteries. It’s basically like a bastard combination of Scooby Doo, The Venture Brothers and… well, just watch the trailer that they unveiled at SDCC for yourself and you’ll see. (more…)
Actor Jamie Foxx, soon to be seen on the big screen as the Spider-Man classic baddie, Electro, seems to have gotten a taste for the comic book movie world. In a recent interview, the actor expressed that he’s hot on the hunt for a chance to portray another very popular character that you may have heard of – Spawn.
In his interview, Foxx had this to say about his desired future roles:
Spawn is one, yeah. And Mike Tyson. Those are two roles I would just love to do. I’m aggressively pursuing them
Aggressively pursuing them, eh Foxx? Looks like the dude is serious, not just dropping a Hollywood wish list into the press and hoping someone gives him a call. That also means that both a Mike Tyson and a Spawn flick are likely being worked on somewhere (news that may have slipped by my radar…).
What do you kids in Nerd Reader-land think? Does Foxx have what it takes to wear the shoes of Spawn? What about Mike Tyson? Or should we just cut out the middle-man altogether and get Mike Tyson to play Spawn?
If you own a smartphone and iPad or it’s newer, hipper brother the iPad2 then you must have played the sensational Angry Birds game. Launching a small army of birds into wooden structures to murder helpless green pigs for points, it’s just so addicting. That’s where the trouble comes in, if the game is so addicting it starts to affect those things that are part of you everyday life. Your job, your friends, even your love life (if you have one) takes a dive faster then you can toss those colorful little birds. Oh great and powerful Steve Jobs, isn’t there someone who can save us from this crutch in our lives? Thankfully, this is where former world champion boxer Mike Tyson comes in.
He bit a man’s ear off, you’ll listen.
At least this is over quickly, you should have seen the idea for the 12 rounds with Tyson. Amazing turn around but too many broken wrists. I kid, he’s a good sport (don’t kill me Mr.Tyson, please).
