The actor wants to play his friend Mike Tyson. He claims no one except him knows the interesting facts around Mike Tyson.

"Mike Tyson gives you phrases that, if you listen to it, it'll blow your mind. They (media) said 'Mike, how do you feel?' and he said, 'I'm happy. I'm more happy now I don't have any money,' and they said, 'Why, Michael?' 'I don't have to worry about anything. I'm just here.'And I said, 'That's where you go. Do the story about that and about how he feels now - after he looks back on what all happened," he said.
