Fine Man Friday: Jamie Foxx

Jamie Foxx (Born Eric Bishop), does it all. Award winning Actor, singer-songwriter, stand-up comedian, and talk radio host. As an actor, his work in the film Ray earned him the Academy Award and BAFTA Award for Best Actor as well as the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a musical/comedy. He is also a Grammy Award winning musician, producing three albums which have charted highly on the Billboard 200: Unpredictable, Best Night of My Life and Intuition.

 

 

 

He can be seen on Christmas day as the horseback-riding, gunslinging former slave in Quentin Tarantino’s new movie Django Unchained. In his interview with
The Root, he comments on his new film:e Foxx in Django Unchained

TR: With Lincoln and the upcoming Twelve Years a Slave, it seems Hollywood has a rekindled interested in that era.

JF: If you ask the average 18- to 25-year-old kid, when did slavery end, what will they say? [He shrugs.] I think that’s bad. We got to take some responsibility, now that the movie is out, to spark the education; we gotta know our history. We’re the only race who doesn’t.

Ask any Italian, and they’re like, “My great-grand and great-duh-duh-duh,” or ask a Jewish person, it’s the same thing. You ask us, and we’re at the club. And I am, too. I’m like [singing Trinidad James’ “All Gold Everything”]: “All gold is my chain, all gold on my ring.” I’m on that, too, but is this supposed to be all we know?
