'Franklin & Bash' invites Mike Tyson into the ring this summer -- EXCLUSIVE

You know it’s worth watching when they’ve got a Mike Tyson cameo.

Franklin & Bash returns for a fourth season this summer, and in one episode the boys will have Mr. Face Tattoo to reckon with. The amazing John Michael Higgins (Pitch Perfect, Best in Show) will also star in the episode as Gordon Derringer, a restauranteur and rival of Stanton Infeld (Malcolm McDowell), the head of the law firm. As a power play, Derringer hires Iron Mike to rough up Infeld, but Franklin and Bash take him on instead. Tyson will play himself. Word is out on the tiger; I hope she’ll be playing herself too.

Sounds great right? It’ll be hard to beat this scene though… READ FULL STORY

'Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth' trailer: Iron Mike takes the stage -- VIDEO

By the time he was 12 years old, Mike Tyson had been arrested over 38 times. By the time he was 20 years old — 20 years, four months, and 22 days, to be exact — Tyson had become the youngest heavyweight champion in boxing history, annihilating opponents with vicious knock-outs.

How did Tyson go from juvenile delinquent to champion boxer… not to mention convicted rapist, notorious ear-biter, quasi-professional pigeon racer, and unlikely Hangover co-star? We’ll learn the whole story in an upcoming Spike Lee joint appropriately called Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth, a filmed version of the one-man show Tyson debuted in Vegas and brought to Broadway in August 2012. It’s a tale of rage, ambition, and even the occasional joke — as when Tyson says something about making a “deal with the devil,” and a photo of Don King flashes onscreen.


Mike Tyson to guest on 'Law & Order: SVU'

The case of the missing ear?

Mike Tyson will guest-star on Law & Order: SVU, EW has confirmed. Tyson’s publicist told EW that he’ll shoot his episode later this month. It will air Feb. 13. USA Today first reported that Tyson, making his TV acting debut (not playing himself), will portray Reggie Rhodes, “a murderer on death row who is also the victim of a difficult childhood.”

This isn’t the only news in the most recent chapter of Tyson’s controversial life. Post-Hangover, Tyson had been performing a one-man show (read EW’s review) and in October, launched the Mike Tyson Cares Foundation.
