The 56-year-old athlete also shared, “Hey, listen, we can’t anticipate our next breath. We don’t know when we are gonna die.”
Foxx, 55, was set to play Tyson in a biopic series, but the project could be in limbo.
Mike said, “Well, it was a possibility. I don’t know what’s going to happen now. But, you know, it’s a strong possibility. Because, you know, Jamie’s closer to my age, so in order to do him, they were going to do what they did with [the movie] ‘Benjamin Button.’ They were going to make him look younger.”
Back in 2020, Foxx told “Extra” of the project, “I’ve known Mike for a long time. I told him I want to immortalize him and I told him, ‘I’m gonna look so much like you that when I walk in your house, your kids going to be like, ‘Daddy’s home.’”
Foxx’s medical condition first came to light in mid-April when his daughter Corinne Foxx shared on Instagram, “We wanted to share that my father, Jamie Foxx, experienced a medical complication yesterday. Luckily, due to quick action and great care, he is already on his way to recovery.”
Weeks later she gave an update, revealing he was out of the hospital and even playing pickleball!
Afterward, TMZ reported the Oscar winner was on his path to recovery, but at a physical rehabilitation center in Chicago.
The site reports the facility where he is currently getting treatment specializes in stroke recovery, traumatic brain injury rehab, cancer rehabilitation, and spinal cord injury rehab.
