During the Las Vegas press junket for “The Hangover”, I was one of the few people that got to interview Mike Tyson. As a kid that grew up playing his video game on the Nintendo NES, it was a real thrill to be able to ask him some questions. Also, it’s not everyday you get to talk with one of the greatest boxers of all time.
As most of you have seen in the TV spots and trailers, Mike Tyson plays a small but important part in director Todd Phillips “The Hangover”. If you’ve seen the movie…you know what I’m talking about.
During my interview we talked about making the film, video games, his documentary “Tyson”, working with the tiger, his co-stars, and a lot more. If you’ve seen “The Hangover” or are just a fan of Iron Mike, you’ll enjoy this interview. Take a look after the jump:
