Like many athletes, Tyson stopped doing what he did best, and eventually, he fell out of the limelight. But, thanks to a few good choices, such as being cast in The Hangover franchise, he’s made a comeback as of late. That said, those movies weren’t actually his first roles in Hollywood.
He’s always been a party animal, but in The Hangover franchise, Tyson’s life and personality were taken to an extreme. This was done for the sake of comedy, and it worked. His small role in the movie was a notable one, as audiences seemed to really enjoy watching him live his fake life.
