Jamie Foxx and his career
If we look to the career of Jamie Foxx, it’s hard to believe that he was beginning to conquer the folk scene with his extravagant sketches on In Living Color. Soon he moved even further — filming the sitcom. After 2004 career trajectory, Jamie Foxx changed dramatically after the Collateral and Ray movie for which he received the Academy Award for the playing of the late musical legend Ray Charles.
In the interview with the director of the blockbuster “White House Down» Roland Emmerich it was an interesting moment when they were talking about Jamie Foxx. They decided maybe it would be great to bring Jamie Fox because he recently starred in the role of a slave in the movie «Django Unchained» and he can play the president in another movie. Director said that his role in «Django Unchained» didn’t affect on Jamie Foxx. But the director was afraid at first. Will he be able to play this intellectual hero? When director saw the footage from the film «Django Unchained», he began to doubt it. Then, when he was already in the presidential suit, befitting makeup — he became a different person. The difference between his characters in the film by Quentin Tarantino in this film is very noticeable. He is a great actor, and director was very happy to work with him.
Jamie had just switched to “White House Down” after the film «Django Unchained» and there were many action scenes. In “White House Down”, Jamie had to play the role of a man who has no idea how to fight. He plays an intellectual. With this contradiction in a lot of humor was associated. Jamie once asked the director if he needs to wear a suit all time. Director told him: «Yes, definitely. Because this is the only way we will be able to hide your muscles that we do not really need for this movie.»
