Mike Tyson and Shakespeare?
You don't hear those two names together very often.
Boxer Mike Tyson say he wants to do some Shakespeare!
He expressed interest in playing Othello, on television perhaps.
You can read more about it here:
What do you think?
Should Iron Mike do it?
Do you think he's joking?
He may be joking, and it does indeed sound funny at first.
For me, I think he should do it.
It would certainly be unlike any other Shakespeare play you have ever seen before.
In the hands of a good director, and with a good supporting cast, it could be a good production.
It could be either unforgettably bad, or unforgettably bad.
But I think there would be an audience to see it.
In my humble opinion, there is no such thing as truly bad Shakespeare, and every production has its merits and its failures.
In fact, Mr. Tyson could very well introduce Shakespeare to an audience that might never bother watching Shakespeare.
Also, when is the last time you saw an actor portray Othello, a celebrated general, who really knows something about fighting?
