The zany stuntman stunned the audience at Charlie Sheen's Comedy Central Roast on Saturday (10Sep11) after repeatedly slamming his face into Tyson's hand.
He later took to his Twitter.com page to thank Tyson for the injury, writing, "Tonight I asked Mike Tyson for a black eye and I wound up with two black eyes and a broken nose. Thanks so much, Brother! @MikeTyson."
Steve-O assured fans he'll show off his bruises soon, adding, "I would post a photo of how messed up my face is now, but I'm going to look so much more awesome tomorrow, it's going to be worth the wait."
Sheen was man of the hour as a host of A-listers lined up to pay mocking tribute, poking fun at his career and his rotating roster of girlfriends at a TV taping in Culver City, California.
Rocker Slash played the guitar as Sheen took his place in the hot seat, while host MacFarlane introduced the honouree as "a man with a big heart, because it's been dangerously enlarged by cocaine use".
Grey's Anatomy star Walsh later took the stage to tell Sheen, "It's amazing, despite all those years of abusing your lungs, your kidneys and your liver, the only thing you've had removed is your kids."
Shatner also took a swipe at Sheen, insisting, "I was on (TV show) S**t My Dad Says and every time your dad sees you, he says, 'S**t!'"
But the former Two and a Half Men star proved his sense of humour when he wrapped up the show with a few choice insults of his own.
He told the crowd, "It's true I've hung around with a lot of shady people over the years: Losers, drug addicts, dealers, desperate whores. But to have you all here on one night is really special...
"This roast may be over, but I'm Charlie Sheen, and in (my heart) burns an internal fire. I just have to remember to keep it away from a crack pipe."
The actor, who played Charlie Harper on the TV show, has signed on to play the titular character in new indie movie A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charlie Swan III.
Roman Coppola is set to write and direct the project, which will also star Jason Schwartzmann.
Sheen's character will be a graphic designer struggling to come to terms with a break-up.
Sheen is also working on a TV sitcom spin-off based on 2003 Adam Sandler movie Anger Management.
He'll also be the subject of an upcoming Comedy Central Roast, where stars like Kate Walsh, Slash, Mike Tyson and William Shatner will poke fun at the actor.
It really is a mark of how little people think of you when a man who's more famous for his face tattoo and biting someone's ear than he is for his entire boxing career gets to stand in front of an auditorium full of people and make fun of you and your life decisions. That's the position Charlie Sheen is in as we now know a handful of the people who will take cheap shots at the former star of Two and a Half Men during his Comedy Central Roast on Sept. 19 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
The comedy network just announced that in addition to Seth MacFarlane as Sheen's roastmaster, TMZ's Harvey Levin, Jackass' Steve-O, comedians Anthony Jeselnik and Jeffrey Ross, and boxing champion and ear-biter Mike Tyson will step up to the podium to hurl insults at the man of the hour. Now, I don't remember Tyson or Steve-O ever being adept at comedy, but hey, it could be worse. You could be hated so vehemently by the general public that Comedy Central adds none other than Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino to your roast panel. Donald Trump must be upset to know that America likes Sheen -- even with his coked-up antics and porn star companions -- more than they like him.

Boxer Mike Tyson turned medic for the day after swapping lives with a namesake nurse from Michigan on U.S. TV show Same Name. The retired sportsman learned how to take patients' vital signs on the programme, which aired on Sunday (07Aug11), while the other Mike Tyson stepped into the ring for a charity boxing match.
As its title suggests Rupert Wyatt’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes is intended to lay the foundation for a new franchise of sci-fi flicks in which humans and super-intelligent apes battle for earthly supremacy. Its duty then is to explain within the span of two hours and with a modicum of credulity how exactly our simian friends might come to supplant us atop the animal kingdom. The scenario was at least partially addressed in Conquest of the Planet of the Apes the fourth entry in the original series’ convoluted and time-warped canon and while Wyatt's film draws inspiration from Conquest it is by no means a remake. Nor for that matter is related in any way to Tim Burton’s underwhelming 2001 entry. (And thank goodness for that.)
The titular rise begins as with many of the world’s great catastrophes with the actions of one highly irresponsible man. Will Rodman (James Franco) is a genetic scientist of prodigious talent and questionable ethics who works at a fancy San Francisco biotech firm called Gen-Sys (subtle!). His effort at producing a cure for Alzheimer’s Disease carries an ulterior motive: His father (John Lithgow) suffers from it and is close to entering its final stages. Will is close to a breakthrough when one of his chimpanzee test subjects goes well apesh*t causing his company’s suitably callous CEO Steven Jacobs (David Oyelowo gamely spewing lines like “I run a business not a petting zoo!") to order the research facility’s entire chimp population liquidated.
Will is busy carrying out the grim mandate when he discovers that one of the test chimps has borne an offspring one he can’t bring himself to euthanize. Instead he and his primatologist girlfriend Caroline (Frieda Pinto gorgeous and superfluous) partners in appallingly bad decision-making decide to raise the infant chimp as their own naming it Caesar. Having inherited his mother’s gene modifications he shows signs of advanced intelligence and quickly develops a close bond with his adoptive human parents. But Caesar soon outgrows his domestic habitat and eventually must be shipped off to a simian “sanctuary” that is in reality anything but.
At this point we’re halfway through the film – and miles away from erudite apes and enslaved humans. To get us on track director Wyatt executes a rather audacious tonal shift transitioning abruptly from what was heretofore a fairly sober Project Nim dramatization into the balls-out apes-gone-wild summer action flick promised by the film’s trailers. His efforts are aided tremendously by his screenwriters Amanda Silver and Rick Jaffa whose clever absorbing script offers just enough plausibility in the first half to make its increasingly loony second half not just palatable but downright enjoyable. Wyatt strikes a delicate thematic balance respecting the subject matter while acknowledging its inherent silliness. (Scattered throughout the film are sly nods to previous Planet of the Apes films as well as a glimpse of Charlton Heston in The Ten Commandments.)
The silliness accelerates seemingly by the frame in Rise’s latter half as Caesar mounts a conspiracy to escape his Dickensian squalor exact revenge upon his cartoonishly malevolent captors and take his simian revolution to the streets. And it only gets crazier from there – the third act is basically a PETA wet dream. As far as cautionary tales go Rise is about as cautionary as they come.
Andy Serkis who performed all of the performance-capture work for Caesar is a marvel in the role though the question remains as to how the credit should be divvied up between him and the technicians at WETA digital who “painted” the character’s CG features. And make no mistake Caesar is very much a character – as well-rounded and fully-formed and convincing as they come and easily more compelling than any of his non-digital counterparts. Franco for his part is credible enough as a scientist who in spite of his academic credentials is a bit of a dolt (and perhaps a tad disturbed) and Lithgow tackles a relatively thankless role with grace. But the real stars are all those damn dirty apes.
The former Baywatch bombshell is said to have been recruited to join the newest series of the reality show, which is undergoing a makeover after switching TV networks in Britain.
Anderson tells Britain's Daily Star, "I am very excited about the show. I will just be myself and have fun with the contestants in the house."
The actress is no stranger to the hugely successful franchise - she has previously appeared on both the Australian and Indian versions.
Former boxing champ Mike Tyson recently denied reports he will appear on Celebrity Big Brother, which sees a group of famous faces holed up in a house and forced to live together with no way of contacting the outside world.
The Hangover star was said to be on producers' wish list for the next season of the programme, in which a group of famous faces are holed up in a house and forced to live together with no way of contacting the outside world.
But Tyson has dismissed claims he will be competing for charity cash on the show and ruled out any chance of appearing in the future.
In a post on Twitter.com blog, he writes, "I'm shutting rumors down 2day. I'm not doing any Celebrity Big Brother shows either. I deal with enough drama. I'd never agree to it."
The fighter is no stranger to reality TV - he displayed his love for pigeon racing in Taking on Tyson and showed off his fancy footwork on Argentina's version of Dancing with the Stars earlier this year (11).
