Jamie Foxx Goes Deep And Dark For First Short Film And She Was My Eve
Tyrin Turner (Menace II Society) plays a man whose ability to communicate with women was stunted as a child, when he embarrassed himself in front of his schoolmates. As an adult, he apparently thinks the only way that he’ll find love is if he creates it at home, like a modern Victor Frankenstein. His monster/lover is played by Samantha Nagel (Body Shots) - or at least a mannequinized version of her.
Oliver Stone And Jamie Foxx May Reteam For New Martin Luther King Jr. Biopic
Director Oliver Stone is no stranger to the biopic genre, having previously made Born On The Fourth of July, The Doors, Nixon, and more, and now he's getting ready to bring yet another important 20th century figure to the silver screen.

Rose Byrne In Talks To Play Grace In Annie Remake
Should she take the part, she’ll be the fourth big name involved with the project, and would take on the role of Grace, assistant to “Daddy” Warbucks, renamed Benjamin Stacks for the film and played by Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx. Any way you look at it, this is going to be a big movie for Sony.
Jamie Foxx's Electro Revealed In Action In Amazing Spider-Man 2 Video

Our minds were pretty blown yesterday when Jamie Foxx's blue-skulled Electro was revealed facing off against Spider-Man on the cover of Entertainment Weekly, one of the many splashy bits of art the magazine has debuted in advance of Comic-Con next week. Now a peek inside the magazine gives us an even better look at the villain
Why The Hell Didn't You See White House Down?
Katey and Sean-- who have already, full disclosure, declared their love for the movie in front of the actual White House-- try to figure it out below. Do we blame Olympus Has Fallen? The Heat? Is it all Channing Tatum's fault? Help us solve the mystery
White House Down's Jamie Foxx And Channing Tatum Reveal The Secret To Their Bromance
Above you can watch my conversation with Tatum and Foxx, in which I ask them about the secret to their bromance-- it involves Foxx taking over a DJ booth at a party in Mexico-- and why Tatum risks his neck over and over again on the set to make sure that he does his own stunts. Foxx-- a smart veteran of the movie business-- says he's perfectly happy to let his stunt double earn his paycheck
White House Down Stumbles At Friday Box Office, While The Heat Takes Over
Alright, people, I don't know what else we can possibly give you. It's just before the Fourth of July, and you need something to see at the movies. Roland Emmerich, the guy who brought you Independence Day is back, and he's once again blowing up the White House. And the Capitol. And he's got Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx (as the President, for God's sake!) running around trying to stop the terrorists who did it
Django Stars Leonardo DiCaprio And Jamie Foxx Reunite For A Detective Movie
It seems like these two guys could be attached to an adaptation of Goodnight Moon - and why wouldn’t they be? - and it would attract audiences in droves. DiCaprio’s production company Appian Way, which is becoming a mini-powerhouse, will provide non-Warner production duties.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2's Jamie Foxx Reveals Electro's Voice On The Tonight Show
As you can see in the video embed inside, he revealed new images of himself both as the incredibly nerdy Max Dillon, and the superpowered Electro (pre-CGI) . But one of the real reasons to watch the interview is because Foxx samples a bit of his voice after being charged with electricity. As you can hear, he is using a much lower pitch and a grumble not too dissimilar to Batman himself.
White House Down Extended Trailer Will Channing All Over America's Tatum
We've been pretending for months now that this February's A Good Day to Die Hard never actually happened, and it's about to get a whole lot easier to let amnesia protect the memory of John McClane. Well, really, it's Channing Tatum who will be doing it. In this new four-minute trailer for White House Down, you can see more of what's been promised by months
Channing Tatum Blows A Job Interview, Takes Down Terrorists In New White House Down Trailer
Star Channing Tatum showed that he has a knack for playing a funny hero with his performance in 21 Jump Street, and I have to say I enjoyed what we see from him here. The talking he does to himself before running into the library is very John McClane-esque...
Jamie Foxx To Be The New Daddy Warbucks In Annie Remake
Foxx is currently starring in a huge upcoming Sony tentpole, playing Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and he's of course coming off a huge star turn in Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained. In this updated version of the Annie story-- which originated with a Depression-era comic strip-- Foxx won't be playing Daddy Warbucks but "Benjamin Stacks,"
The Real Reason Will Smith Turned Down Django Unchained
As an international star with box office drawing power, Smith might have seemed an obvious choice. But considering this story was of a freed slave wreaking bloody revenge against cruel plantation owners, Django was a role that would be more brutal than any Smith had taken on before. It spurred a lot of debate from movie lovers online. Could the oft-affable Smith believably play a Tarantino-level badass?
