The megalomaniacal overreach thread
Mike Tyson wants to play Othello - MSN Movies News
Is the world ready for this - ,ahem, Mike Tyson as "Othello?"
Think'st thou I'd make a life of jealousy,
To follow still the changes of the moon
With fresh suspicions? No; to be once in doubt,
Is once to be resolved.
Or I break your face.
--Othello, Act III, scene iii, or something like that...

Dunno...Iron Mike was on Howard Stern the other day, and it was a tremendous eye opener. A really tragic life but he seems to have found humility, a sense of humor and most importantly peace. Sure his use of words was comical at times...definitely along the 'guy in prison with high falutin vocabulary', but there was just such a sense that the guy really turned himself around. Between that and just how f'd up his life has been it almost seems unfair to begrudge him at this point. Just my opinion...I know it's hard to ignore some of his past indescretions, but, once again, he at least seems to take responsibility for them. There are those that simply never do, Like Lohan, who is in rehab and says that she doesn't have a problem with alcohol so she is wasting her time...maybe she will 'get it' one day, somehow I don't think so
