EXCLUSIVE: Tyson Beckford Wants To Get Naked In “Chocolate City!”July 31, 2014
By James Desborough
Move over “Magic Mike” – Tyson Beckford says his stripper film “Chocolate City” will be better AND bigger!
The male supermodel is famous for posing in his underwear for magazines and billboards, but he’s promising to show a whole lot more skin with his new film role as a stripper.
In a Dish Nation exclusive interview, the 43-year-old hunk admits he’s “not shy” and says that he’s ready to go “full frontal” if the director of the film wants him to. Tyson spoke as he walked the white carpet at the 2014 International Fashion Film Awards in association with Style Fashion Week and Cinemoi at the Saban Theatre in LA.
“I do realize that probably for the last 22 years women have wanted to see the package,” Tyson said. “I have no problem showing it. I don’t know if we are going to do any frontal, but I don’t care – I am not shy.”
Tyson, who says his movie will be better, bolder and bigger – in some areas – than “Magic Mike,” plays Adrian, an aging dancer hired to whip the newbie dancers into shape.
He even took time to compare his film to the Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey blockbuster.
“I saw Magic Mike, and not to knock those guys, it was good movie for them, but I feel our script is a lot better than theirs. So hopefully we will catch a lot more theatrical people in there that will like the film — more than just to see skin.”
Tyson sys the film, which also stars Shemar Moore, Romeo Miller and Laz Alosno, doesn’t have a leading lady yet, but it probably won’t be Beyonce.
“I would rather it be someone knew. I don’t think Beyonce has time to be coming to do this with that ‘On The Run’ tour.”
Cameras start rolling on “Chocolate City” in the next couple of weeks.
