Bet on Mike Tyson Starring on Broadway
Mike Tyson, the boxing legend, can’t seem to stay away from the big screen and has just signed up for a cameo role in ‘Scary Movie 5’.
Tyson has already appeared in a number of films including Crocodile Dundee, The Hangover and its sequel The Hangover II.
Tyson was spotted on the set of Scary Movie 5 with co-star Heather Locklear last week.
Tyson’s acting antics have led to Paddy Power opening a betting market; there are accepting bets on the boxer appearing in a Broadway or West End show by the end of 2014.
It seems, with odds of 14/1, that he is most likely to appear as the villain Bill Sykes in the musical Oliver.
This is followed by Jud Fry in Oklahoma (20/1), Shrek at 20/1, The Phantom of the Opera at 40/1 and least likely is Billy Elliot at 200/1.
Joining Tyson in Scary Movie 5 is Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan who play lovers; Ashley Tisdale and Molly Shannon are also in the film.
Having been given a special permit allowing him to enter New Zealand, Tyson will be on tour there next month despite a previous rape conviction putting him in breach of immigration rules.
