No face tattoos are even involved.
After years of building a reputation as cold-blooded and downright crazy in and out of the boxing ring, Tyson has suddenly become a comedian, family man and vegan. The guy is even about to host a show on Animal Planet about pigeon racing.
In a series of recent candid interviews, Tyson has been talking about his past: the drugs, violence, prostitutes, and prison.
It’s hard to believe that Tyson could all of the sudden be such a different person, but his words do indicate that he has found some level of peace with himself and his past, and his on-camera demeanor has changed as well. His self-awareness in “The Hangover” was one of the keys to the movie. The old Iron Mike couldn’t have pulled it off.
Sunday night, in what must be considered the best (and most out of control) episode of the season, Tyson appeared on Entourage. Tyson’s role? He was pitching a show idea to Ari Gold — Black Brady Bunch starring himself and Jessica Simpson.
We seem to be entering a new Tyson era, and that’s a good thing. He says that he “doesn’t care about boxing anymore.” He’s all about his wife and kids instead. Tyson’s always been entertaining, but now he’s just funny, not scary-crazy-funny, and even likable too.

“When they drafted me, I told them this is one of the biggest things they did, and I won’t let them down. From the business side, they make the choices.”
