Tyson Fury reportedly wants a role in the Peaky Blinders spin-off series following the success of his recent Netflix documentary.

At Home with the Furies was released in August and was based on the life of the Gypsy King, his wife Paris, and their children.

It is believed that this show has been quite successful on the streaming platform.

And it seems Fury enjoys being in front of the camera so much that he’s eager for an acting role.

Packie Lee starred in the BBC show as Johnny Doggs, the traveler cousin of the show’s lead Tommy Shelby.

Shelby is played by Cillian Murphy, who has appeared in films such as Batman Begins, Oppenheimer and Inception.

Lee wants a spin-off based on his character – and says Fury is being prepared to appear.

According to the Belfast Telegraph, the actor said: “At the end of the day, there are choices in that Peaky Blinders world.

“There’s talk of a movie, there’s talk of a spin-off and then there’s talk of no movie.

“It’s been a few years now since we did season six, and I’m just saying ‘Listen, this was a world that Stephen Knight created, and if Johnny Dogs had the possibility of showing another side of that world Would have been.’ Eyes, I’d definitely be up for it.”

On Fury he said: “He’s saying to me, ‘Are you serious?’

“I told him, ‘You know I am.’ ‘It would be amazing,’ he told me.

“Given his background he would be the perfect cameo. That’s exactly where I’m going.

,[I would be saying] ‘Have you met my little brother?’ It would be incredible.”

Fury said last year that he was open to a career in acting.

“I’ve done well in boxing,” Britton said.

“The world is open to a lot of things now. I’m making a Netflix documentary at the moment.

“Who knows? You might even see me on the silver screen.”

And Fury’s wife, Paris, thinks acting is something her husband would ‘definitely be interested in’.

However, Fury’s priority right now is to defeat Oleksandr Usyk.

The two men were originally scheduled to face each other on December 23, but their bout was postponed.

Instead they will face off on February 17 in their first heavyweight clash since the Lennox Lewis days.

With Fury confident that he will reign supreme, the Gypsy King is training hard as the fight draws closer.

However, Usyk believes it is a matter of ‘when’, not ‘if’ he achieves the victory.
