Jamie Foxx is bulking up for his next role. Jamie revealed that even though despite his Oscar winning role in Ray, he’s sketchy about doing biopics because they’re so hard to make BUT he’s excited and confirmed that the Mike Tyson biopic is moving forward. In preparation, he’s of course working out… “every other day,” with a routine that includes 60 pull-ups, 60 dips and 100 push-ups.  He showed off his transformation in a photo  and says “In changing his body, he will be 216 pounds (97kgs) when we shoot and then we’ll balloon to 225-230 which will look like 250 on screen. No release date for the movie has been set.
