Mike Tyson will appear in the new Scary Movie film, playing himself during a scene parodying 50 Shades of Grey.
Tyson, 50 Shades of Gray? Boxing great, and now comedy movie regular Mike Tyson should be able to give the upcoming Scary Movie 5 the lift it may need (given how bad the last two were at least) after it emerged that he is to appear in the next instalment of the comedy franchise during a spoof of the 50 Shades of Grey novel by EL James.
The term 'You Snooze You Lose' applies to the producers of the movie adaptation of the novel here, because despite close to a year of speculation and rumours, the 50 Shades movie is still no closer to being made and now the hugely popular erotica tale has finally made it to the big screen, only to be spoofed by Tyson, Ashley Tisdale and Jerry O’Connell.
Mike Tyson seems happy in his ongoing film role of 'self-parody'
The footage, which aired on ET on Friday (April 5), showed O’Connell as the dominating Grey who tries to seduce Tisdale's character only for a string of humorously OTT event to take place involving two goats in leather gear, whips and chains, lube and hot wax and eventually, Tyson. “Golly . . . thanks for working on my prostrate like it was a speed bag,” Tyson tells O'Connell in the clip, who replies, “I was surprised by your performance as well. Not bad for a washed up, overweight, facially tattooed . . .” being cut short by a almighty punch from Tyson, producing a laugh from O’Connell, who then says, “Do it again!” before ending up hanging in chains.
The next instalment of the never ending Scary Movie franchise will be released on April 12, whilst the 50 Shades adaptation is looking as though it may never be brought to the big screen.
