Benedict Cumberbatch to Star in Gay Boxer Biopic

Benedict Cumberbatch will be taking on the role of a bare-knuckle boxer based on the memoir of Mikey Walsh. The film, Gypsy Boys, the film delves deep into the relationship between a Romany gypsy fighter and his gay son. In the real-life story, Walsh’s father disowned him after coming out as gay in 1996. Cumberbatch, as Walsh, said of the part: “I was immediately drawn to Mikey’s courageous and heart-breaking story. His father Frank is unlike any character I’ve played before. He’s a complex man torn between tradition and his love for a son struggling to come to terms with an identity that’s completely at odds with Frank and his culture.”
