During the COVID 19 lockdown, both men have made headlines for their social media activity, with Tyson planning a comeback at age 53 and Foxx confirming his lead role in the upcoming biopic Finding Mike. Here''s why an iconic performance will involve much more than a body transformation and a spot on Tyson impersonation.With Foxx, his pop culture persona will always affect how moviegoers interpret dramatic performances. For example, a certain demographic may always view him as the stand up comedian who became a prominent figure on the sketch comedy series In Living Color, while others may forever perceive him as Ray Charles the subject of his Oscar Winning performance in Ray. At this point, however, Foxx has demonstrated his ability to carry hard hitting dramas, evidenced by roles in Any Given Sunday, Collateral Damage, Miami Vice, and many more. Depending on who writes and directs Finding Mike (Terence Winter and Martin Scorsese were originally attached), the biopic could be the ideal showcase for Foxx''s complete skill set as an actor.
