Jamie Foxx

Secret Meeting w/ Mike Tyson

for Upcoming Biopic

9/4/2014 7:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

090414_jamie_foxx_launchJamie Foxx is keeping his preparations for his upcoming Mike Tyson movie pretty close to the vest, but he did let it slip that he met with Iron Mike himself to get ready for the part.

Foxx and his adorable daughter were in Calabasas Wednesday where the Oscar winner deflected any idea that he's bulked up for the role ... by crediting his small shirt. 

But the best part of the clip ... when Jamie's adorable daughter PUT HER DADDY ON BLAST as he tried to tell our photog that he's got a policy about keeping his movie details under wraps. 

Seriously, one of the cutest things you're gonna see all day.

Good choice. If Jaime does half as good a job as he did in "Ray", it should be pretty good. As long as it is an actual bio-pic and not a fluff piece.

Foxx talked about this a while ago on Live with Kelly & Michael. While it was mostly about Foxx WANTING to play Tyson in a bio-pic, and meeting Tyson during a standup routine where he was imitating Tyson, this story isn't exactly breaking news.

Hey Jamie, how's that "Lord and Saviour" of yours doing? You're such a DB.

Pretty crappy of the photog to bring up him using steroids for the part in front of his daughter.

Why can't TMZ paps respect a guy when he's minding his own business with his young daughter? Jamie was being very patient and polite... I can see why celebs get so irate with papparazzi. Annoying little prick vultures

Never saw Ray and now I won't see Tyson. Jamie's a major racist douche! Everyone should know that his Oscar was store bought.

Mike was even greater in defeat.

Than Mike was in his glorious World Title run.

Mike's humility, courage, sense-of-humor.

Honesty.

All riveting, uplifting.

Mike deserves someone of Jamie Foxx's caliber ...

To play Mike.

Jamie will find things no one else would or could.

I expect this to rival "Rocky."

As The-Greatest-Boxing-Movie-Ever-Made.

Very good news.

The Great Ones Get Right To The Point.

i.e. Mike finishing someone-off early in Round One.

Jamie's dead-on. outrageous portrayal of Ray Charles.

This'll be an epic.

One for the ages.

If we never go to our Dark Side.

-Fear it.

We never emerge as Whole.

The role will change Jamie in unforeseen ways.

i.e. The pain Mike experienced - and as a kid.

It should have crushed Mike.

Made Mike evil.

But Mike turned-on-it.

As few have or ever will.

...Textbook - sheer Will.

Thing-of-Beauty.

-Wish Mike could teach that.
