There are certain people in history that are standouts for several different reasons. Mike Tyson is arguably one of the greatest boxers of our time. That being said his personal life outside of the ring was also filled with a certain amount of drama and made for Hollywood moments. Actor Jamie Foxx has been attempting to make an Iron Mike biopic happen for awhile now but from the looks like things it may finally be moving forward.

One of the major things moving full speed ahead is his transformation into Mike Tyson. "Every other day, I do 60 pull-ups, we do 60 dips, we do 100 push-ups," Foxx said, adding, "I ain't got no calf muscles, so we might have to get some prosthetics for that." Jamie Foxx says he'll be 216 pounds when shooting begins (he starts as young Mike) -- and then to play Old Mike, he'll "balloon to 225, 230 which will look like 250 on screen."
