Take a Look at “Mike”'s Cast Side by Side With Their Real-Life Counterparts
“Mike,” will dig into boxer Mike Tyson’s larger-than-life persona. The eight-part limited series will peel back the layers of the former heavyweight boxing champion’s complicated life, exploring every facette of the sports legend’s legacy — from his early teenage days and successful boxing career, to his troubled marriage with ex-wife Robin Givens and the many controversies that clouded his professional and personal fame.
Despite Tyson having expressed his disapproval of the show, writing in an Aug. 6 Instagram, “Don’t let Hulu fool you. I don’t support their story about my life. It’s not 1822. It’s 2022. They stole my life story and didn’t pay me,” the show will premiere as planned. Trevante Rhodes stars in the titular role of Mike Tyson in the show, and if you think his casting is spot on, wait until you see the rest of the actors stepping into the roles of the real-life people surrounding the boxing legend. Ahead of the highly-anticipated release of “Mike”, take a look at the actors tapped for the project alongside the real people they’re portraying onscreen.
