According to TMZ, Spike Lee is in final talks to direct Mike Tyson's one-man play, Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth, which is searching for a Broadway berth this summer after completing a one-week run in Las Vegas. Toss in Debra Messing and a passel of scarves and we've got "Smash, season two," right? (The battle between Tyson and Kat McPhee to play Tyson should be a nail-biter.)
