‘Mike’ cast and crew
Robin Givens is played by Harrier (who was briefly married to Tyson). Cus D’Amato is played by Keitel (a famous boxing manager and trainer). And Eubanks plays the role of Desiree Washington, a woman who accused Tyson of sexual assault in 1991. The limited series (formerly Iron Mike) is unlikely to escape Tyson’s most controversial case.
