Oscar-winner JAMIE FOXX is to take on the role of legendary boxer MIKE TYSON in a forthcoming film about his life. The retired sportsman is planning a Hollywood blockbuster biopic about his controversial career which he will produce - and he has already signed up Foxx to play the lead role. Tyson says, "Jamie Foxx and I will be working together. He will play me in the film about my life. We already talked about it several times." Tyson also insists he is finally free of drugs for the first time in years, admitting he was never completely sober - even in his boxing heyday. He says, "Even when I was training for a fight, there were no drugs, but I would drink. I had never been clean and sober my whole life. "This is the first time. I'm tired of losing. I lost the trust of my family, my five kids. I didn't like that way of life and decided to change. I saw the devil and didn't want that." The 41-year-old was jailed for 24 hours in November (07) after pleading guilty to one felony count of cocaine possession and one misdemeanour count of driving under the influence (DUI) and is currently serving three years' probation.
