I really have to applaud Mike Tyson here, because he’s doing what all great artists must. He’s challenging himself. For a long time now he’s been playing nothing but Mike Tyson. He played Mike Tyson in the “Hangover” movies. He played Mike Tyson in “Rocky Balboa.” He was Mike Tyson on “Entourage.” He’s appeared in a host of other places and always as Mike Tyson.

Don’t get me wrong, he nailed it every time. Mike Tyson is the most convincing Mike Tyson I’ve ever seen. He does the “lovable tough guy boxer with the tribal tat on his face” like nobody else. But still, you hate to see a talent like his go stale. Which why it’s so rewarding to see him branch out, take risks and push the edge of the creative envelope like this.

An action movie where he doesn’t play Mike Tyson, but a Mike Tyson look-alike? You can count me in. This will be like watching Tom Hanks go from “Bosom Buddies” to “Philadelphia.” Just a total departure that will showcase Iron Mike’s true range as an actor.

All I ask is that he never stray too far from his roots. He might be able to play the Mike Tyson look-alike Albania ass-kicker. But no other actor has the chops to portray him in gems like this:
