Mike Tyson says he hopes to make his next movie appearance in the upcoming Men In Black III. The alien-based franchise, starring Will Smith, has already began filming and is due for release next year.

 

In an interview with Britain’s GQ magazine, the former heavyweight champion of the world said he's eyeing a cameo role, saying, "I'm also in negotiations with Barry Sonnenfeld to be in Men In Black 3 with Will Smith."

 

Tyson has already filmed cameos in The Hangover and the 2006 fight film Rocky Balboa.

 

The former boxer and current reality show host has also been a part of several successful online shorts – most notably Wayne Brady’s remake of Bobby Brown’s classic video, “Every Little Step” and "Oscar Talk" with noted film critic Leonard Maltin.
