So it's no surprise that the second hardest man alive, Mike Tyson, would take a liking to Canning Town's most famous trouper.
‘What’s the gentleman that does all those action movies?’ he said in an interview with The Sun.
‘Danny Dyer. I love him to death. He’s cool and I love his movies. I haven’t seen EastEnders, but I’m familiar with it.’
Danny, ever modest, replied with this tweet…
Hahahaha. Beautiful. Gotta be a wind up innit. https://t.co/WoT9KbWGjV— Danny Dyer (@MrDDyer) January 11, 2016
Be a bit of a weird wind-up though, wouldn't it? Nah, we reckon Iron Mike is serious – and we smell a buddy cop movie in the making.
Doubt that Danny's got what it takes to star in a big budget action flick? Balls. Check out our Avengers dub at the top of this post, and swallow your stupid words.
