Oscar winner Jamie Foxx has flitted between different genres of movies and music for a very long time. When he isn’t playing beefy action heroes, he is playing timid President. When he isn’t portraying icon jazz musicians, he is actually nerdy and awkward. He also sings and started off doing comedy. Plus, if you’ve seen one of these films you’ll know that he definitely isn’t lacking (to be entirely crude). Most recently, he has a stellar turn in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Not only was he able to give normal plain Max an endearing quality that could induce second hand embarrassment but he was also ferocious as Electro. But before you get your mitts on the web-slinging DVD’s, why not have a look at some Jamie Foxx essentials?
Honourable Mention: Dreamgirls but it was cut like Effie because it was too repetitive. And Law Abiding Citizen but that’s a bad guilty pleasure film.
