Los Angeles: Boxing legend Mike Tyson hopes his cameo in ‘The Hangover’ sequel might just help him in making acting his full-time career.

The former boxer appeared in the successful 2009 comedy playing himself, and he`s set to return for another cameo role in the upcoming sequel. Tyson has also enjoyed small parts in TV shows such as ‘Entourage’ and ‘Brothers’.

"Yes. I`m pursuing an acting career," a website quoted him as telling TV newsman Larry King in an interview.

"I`ve got a lot of reviews and a lot of people gave me accolades and I`m just very grateful... I could have been going in a different direction right now. And I`m just pretty grateful."
