Mike Tyson discussed the persistent health problems that Hollywood star Jamie Foxx is experiencing in a conversation that took place not long ago.
Jamie Foxx, who was supposed to play Mike Tyson in the planned biography of the legendary boxer, has been ill for some time. Because of this, the production of the biopic has been pushed back.
The actor was scheduled to play Tyson in a television series that was based on his life. The show’s executive producers would be actors Jamie Foxx and Mike Tyson, as well as directors Martin Scorsese and Antoine Fuqua.
The host of the “Valuetainment” podcast, Patrick Bet-David, had a conversation with Tyson concerning the actor’s health in one of the episodes.
During the course of the conversation, Mike mentioned that Jamie was intended to play the role of his in the biopic. The boxer commented, “Well, there certainly was a possibility. I have no idea what is going to take place at this point. But, as you well know, there is a good chance of it happening. Because, you know, Jamie is closer to my age than most people, so in order to do him, they were going to do what they did with Benjamin Button (the movie). They intended to make him appear much younger than he was.
In addition to that, he stated that he is unaware of the state of the actor’s health at the present time, and he also discussed the unpredictability of life with the host.
Mike addressed the group, saying, “Hey, listen up, we can’t predict our next breath.” We have no idea when our time will come to pass. When we walk away from this, potentially negative things will occur.
Mike stated this while they were discussing the latest information regarding Jamie’s health: “If we don’t know by now, they don’t want us to know.”
