Premiering October 27th at 10:30pm ET/PT on Adult Swim is the new animated comedy series Mike Tyson Mysteries. The show features the voices of former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson (The Hangover), Norm MacDonald (Dirty Work), Rachel Ramras (TV's The Looney Tunes Show), and Academy Award-winner Jim Rash (The Way Way Back, The Descendants).
IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick recently had the absolute pleasure of sitting down with "Iron" Mike Tyson and Jim Rash to talk about their work on Mike Tyson Mysteries. The former heavyweight champion and Oscar-winner discussed their new animated series, Tyson's fascination with co-star Norm MacDonald's popularity, what they both thought about the premise when they were approached to do the show, why Tyson thought that Adult Swim was for old people, Tyson's Mr. T impression, how '80s Saturday morning cartoons like Scooby-Doo and Mr. T inspired their show, the Mike Tyson Mysteries team, Rash's character, if Tyson requested that a pigeon be incorporated into the series, how Tyson's real-life (fake) Korean daughter felt about being depicted on the show, why Rash does not have Tyson's phone number, Tyson's lovely singing voice, Rash's most joyous moment, and how Tyson transformed himself from a world famous boxer to a beloved entertainer.
