My Day Has Officially Been Fulfilled

According to the Union-Tribune...

A diamond heist, a Bollywood dance routine, and Mike Tyson make an unlikely combination.

But the former heavyweight champion is set to groove to Hindustani pop music in a promotional video for “Fool and Final,” an upcoming comedy, the film's media consultant said yesterday in Mumbai (formerly Bombay).

The 40-year-old boxer will shoot the promo in India, said N. Chattani, who is in charge of publicity for the movie's producer, Firoze Nadiadwala.

“It's finalized,” Chattani said. “Tyson will be shooting the music promo with the entire cast.”

Why Tyson? Aside from instant publicity, action hero Sunny Deol stars as a boxer in the film, directed by Ahmed Khan.

“The movie is a laugh riot, and the filmmakers thought Tyson would be great in the promo,” Chattani said.

Tyson is facing an August trial in Arizona on felony drug possession charges and two misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence of drugs. The county prosecutor's office said Tyson would have to ask the court for permission to leave the country.

Tyson's best quote of all-time...

"I paid a worker at New York's zoo to re-open it just for me and Robin. When we got to the gorilla cage, there was one big silverback gorilla there just bullying all the other gorillas. They were so powerful but their eyes were like an innocent infant. I offered the attendant $10,000 to open the cage and let me smash that silverback's snotbox! He declined."
