Tyson set for Men In Black role

The former world heavyweight champion has enjoyed a number of onscreen roles since retiring from the ring, including cameos in blockbuster comedy The Hangover and 2006 fight film Rocky Balboa.

Now he’s in talks with director Barry Sonnenfeld for a part in the third instalment of the hit sci-fi franchise, starring Will Smith, which is due for release next year (12).

Tyson tells Britain’s GQ magazine, “I’m also in negotiations with Barry Sonnenfeld to be in Men In Black 3 with Will Smith.”
