'50 Shades of Grey' Will Star Mike Tyson, but Luckily It's Not What You Think

jerry o'connell ashley tisdaleThere have been some seriously insane picks for Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. But ex-boxer Mike Tyson is probably just about the last person you were envisioning to have anything to do with the sexy story about a dominant billionaire who seduces the innocent Ms. Anastasia Steele.

Nonetheless, he's been confirmed to be involved in a Fifty Shades-related project -- along with Jerry O'Connell and Ashley Tisdale. But not in the way you're undoubtedly cringing and imagining.


Tyson's set to take part in a spoof of the erotic novel in Scary Movie 5. Yep. He's going to start alongside Tisdale (aww, Disney would be so proud!) as Jody Campbell and O'Connell who is reportedly playing a Christian Grey-like character who attempts to seduce Jody, according to The New York Post.

"Prepare for a night of unparalleled passion," Jerry's character says after blindfolding Jody with a red mask. "Your safe word is ... deeper." Ohhh boy.

And that's when reportedly Tyson's character walks in from another room and has a strange interaction with O'Connell that involves insulting one another and the two men punching one another and O'Connell ending up hanging up in chains. Oooookay. And yeah, now that the Post has spilled all those juicy details, we really don't have to see it. Not that anyone was planning on doing so anyway. Seriously, Hollywood, please. No. Just. Stop.

Are you rolling your eyes at this so-called parody of Fifty Shades? What do you think about Jerry O'Connell as a Christian Grey-like character?
