No, Mike Tyson hasn’t been picked as the new Christian Grey for the silver-screen version of E.L. James’ best-selling novel “Fifty Shades of Grey” but he will be acting alongside the S&M deviant -- sort of.
The famous boxer will be appearing in “Scary Movie 5,” spoofing the famous erotic novel, according to the New York Post.
The fifth installment of the “Scary Movie” franchise opens in theaters April 12, with Jerry O’Connell playing kinky lothario Christian Grey. In the film, he attempts to seduce Ashley Tisdale playing Jody Campbell, but to his surprise he winds up with a mix of chains, goats, hot wax, whips and Tyson, the Post wrote.
“Prepare for a night of unparalleled passion,” O’Connell apparently says to Tisdale after blindfolding her with a red mask. “Your safe word is ... deeper.”
Tyson is subsequently shown in another room where he grimaces and tells Grey, “Golly ... thanks for working on my prostrate like it was a speed bag.”

The deviant millionaire then shoots back: “I was surprised by your performance as well. Not bad for a washed-up, overweight, facially tattooed ... ” Tyson then hits O’Connell, who giggles, saying, “Do it again!” before he ends up hanging in chains.
Audrina Patridge and Kendra Wilkinson were originally supposed to be in the film, but their parts were cut after they were deemed too risque for the PG-13 movie, the Post reported.
Fans have yet to find out who will be cast as their beloved “Fifty Shades” characters in the real cinematic version of the book. It seems like endless actors have been rumored to be playing the role of Grey, with Matt Bomer and Ian Somerhalder being the top favorites. Emma Watson and Alexis Bledel are the top fan picks to play Anastasia Steele.
Novelist James recently told the Post, “We don’t even have a filmmaker ... so we are still a long way away from casting.”
