"The Hangover" helped reintroduce Tyson to the world as not only a boxer, but as a star who could laugh at himself and be a bankable celebrity. "The Hangover" won the Golden Globe for best picture, comedy or musical, in 2010, no doubt in part to Tyson's scene-stealing rendition of Phil Collins' "In the Air Tonight." Tyson later said he took the role in "The Hangover" to afford his drug habit. Tyson has done cameos in a number of TV series and feature films, including "Entourage," "Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles" and "Rocky Balboa." Tyson is shown with the cast of "The Hangover" after the film won the 2010 Golden Globe for best picture, comedy or musical. He is joined by Ed Helms, left, Justin Bartha, Heather Graham and Bradley Cooper.
