MIke Tyson has lived a decoratie life in his time as a boxer. He’s the next public figure to have a biopic dedicated to his story and deservedly so.
Trevantes Rhodes takes on Mike Tyson by entering into the heavyweight champion’s skin in Hulu’s Mike. The streaming service recently released the first trailer showing us our best look yet at the actor’s impression of Tyson.
Mike trails Mike Tyson’s life, from his childhood, his title as as world champion, his rape conviction, and the infamous bite.
The official synopsis reads:
“Focusing the lens on Mike Tyson, the series examines class in America, race in America, fame and media power, misogyny, the wealth divide, the promise of the American dream, and ultimately our own role in shaping Mike’s story. Mike is an unauthorized, no-holds-barred look at the life of Mike Tyson, and it’s a wild ride.”
Jamie Foxx will also play Mike Tyson in a biopic series after this one. Antoine Fuqua is set to direct with Martin Scorsese set to exec produce.
