Mike Tyson wants job from Brad Pitt
Mike Tyson has revealed he would love to work with Brad Pitt.
The retired boxer is currently appearing in a one-man show on Broadway, Mike Tyson Undisputed Truth.
Directed by Spike Lee, the nearly two-hour show chronicles Mike's life from childhood and his early boxing career to his public divorce from Robin Givens and his time spent in prison. He even talks about an incident with Brad Pitt.
Mike said: "I'm just joking and stuff. I'm not mad at anyone. I hope he gives me a damn job."
Spike chipped in: "He asked for a job."
Pounding out the details of his personal life on a Broadway stage doesn't seem to faze Mike. The former heavyweight champ says that's what he's used to doing, "and at least now I don't have to go to hospital every time."
Spike, famous for chronicling stories about Brooklyn in such films as Crooklyn, 'She's Gotta Have It, and the upcoming Red Hook Summer, feels this work adds nicely to collection.
"You can't get more Brooklyn than Mike Tyson. And if you remember the film, Do the Right Thing, the great Robin Harris (playing Sweet Dick Willie) had many references to Mike. And the side of Sal's Famous Pizzeria we painted a mural, Brooklyn's Finest: Mike Tyson, so this is history," Spike said.
While the 46-year-old boxer's life has been tumultuous at times, Mike says he can deal with telling intimate details to a room full of strangers simply because "it's a job to be done."
"Even though it's real, it's not real. It's an illusion," he said.
