As an avowed Trevante Rhodes scholar I am massively disappointed in myself that I somehow had not a single clue that the Moonlight actor was about to star in Mike, an eight-episode limited series for Hulu about Mike Tyson -- not until this afternoon when the teaser trailer popped up in my inbox! Popped up...
... with a vengeance, baby! The series is from the team behind I Tonya and the Pam & Tommy miniseries, who've made a whole damn career out of reenacting tabloid scandals from the 90s and giving them the modern twist of actually looking with some depth at the nefarious cultural factors involved, like racism and sexism. Also...
... it would seem that director Craig Gillespie just really likes to shoot hot dudes in their underwear. I get that! In all seriousness I'm a big fan of I Tonya and the Pam & Tommy series similarly ended up being much better than I anticipated (Lily James was truly transformative) -- add on the fact that I have been waiting for somebody to give blessed Trevante a big juicy role for far too long and I am all in on this baby! Here's the trailer:
Mmmmm Trevante 😋. Also, just curious, what is your opinion of JD Pardo?
Ugh, I hate Mike Tyson. But Trevante is great, so watch it, and then tell me if I should watch, OK?
I thought I Tonya was condescending and dumb. I’ll pass on this series and just respectfully enjoy Trevante in these gifs.
ALL of that!
