Exclusive: Tyson Beckford Talks “Chocolate City” & Being Inspired By Channing Tatum
Tyson Beckford is baring it all in 2014. The model/actor, who can currently be seen in the steamy thriller Addicted, will also be showing off his assets in the strip club drama Chocolate City.
HipHollywood sat down with Beckford and asked him about his stripper role. “It’s going to be something thrilling and I think people are going to enjoy that too,” said Beckford. “You’ll see two different people in that one.”
The film which follows a young college student who turns to stripping to pay the bills is being touted as the black version of Magic Mike which starred Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey.
Beckford told us he doesn’t mind the comparisons, and thanked Tatum for opening the door for his film. “I used to model with Channing,” explains Beckford. “We did Sean John stuff together. It’s kind of like that movie, he set the tone for it, and I follow through.”
