The former boxing champ is starring in a satire of the raunchy novel in the upcoming "Scary Movie 5." A short clip of the parody, featuring Jerry O'Connell as Christian Grey and Ashley Tisdale as his romantic interest, was released last week as a teaser to the film. (Watch the spoof above.)
Tisdale told the New York Post that she was was "kind of nervous" about filming a "Fifty Shades" parody, adding that Tyson seemed "intimidating" to her.
"[But it] turned out to be hilarious," she said.
Though the "Fifty Shades of Grey" movie has yet to be made, there has been no shortage of rumors as to when the popular novel will be adapted for the big screen. Adam Fogelson, chairman of Universal Pictures, told the Hollywood Reporter in February that a "Fifty Shades" movie may be theaters as "early as next summer."
