During the interview, Jamie shared a picture of his physique to give fans a sneak peek of what’s in store for them when the film his theaters. To get in shape to play the boxer, he’s been doing 60 dips, 60 pull-ups, and 100 pushups every other day. He plans to start the film at 216 pounds and go up to roughly 230 to play the older version of Tyson. He hasn’t done Tyson’s voice yet, so we’ll have to wait and see on that front.
Jamie said that, for his lower half, they’d have to use other methods. “I ain’t got no legs, I ain’t got no calf muscles so we’re gonna have to get some prosthetics for that,” he explained.
