    i'm from new orleans and reeally appreciated the shout out to the second line they did in the intro, since i recognized it immediately but wasn't sure if they were gonna call it by name. turns out the interview starts with that, and they even shouted out the city itself and gave me some of that accent haha. i see you jamie, i see you lol

    Man they need to come on with that scorcese/Foxx , mike tyson film...I know jamie is 50+years old but I don't think there's a human being alive talented enough to portray tyson like him. I also think it will have the potential to be the greatest boxing movie ever...if it's done right!

    The fact that Jamie Foxx has so many talents Is awesome but, it's not legendary. Back in 60's and 70's, Most blacks on in the entertainment business had 3 or 4 different talents. That's because there weren't too many rolls for blacks. So, you had to be ready for what ever came your way. Especially for Broadway Way plays and musicals. You had to be able to sing dance and act. The sad thing is, we never got to see their plethora of talents. Gina and Pam from the Martin Lawrence sit com. Those two can sing, dance, act and do a little comedy as well. Listen to Pam aka Tichina Campbell singing at a championship baseball game; she bought the house down while singing the National Anthem. To top it off, the young lady is so gorgeous and has a smile that would light up any room.
