Tyson said the cast of the hit movie became his inspiration for getting his life back together.
“So those guys are just beautiful people. They had my back, and I appreciate that and stuff, then they asked me to come back [in the Hangover 2],” Tyson said.
However, he decided not to appear in “The Hangover Part III” expected in theatres May 2013.
Between 2006 and 2007, Tyson was convicted of a DUI and possession of cocaine. Shortly after, he checked himself into rehab.
Tyson is now looking forward to hitting the road for his one-man-show touring the U.S. next year.
