 Jamie Foxx Biography

An Academy Award winning actor, talented Grammy Award winning musical artist and comedian, Jamie Foxx is an elite multi-faceted performer.

In 2011, Foxx was seen in New Line Cinema's successful comedy, Horrible Bosses, opposite Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Spacey and Jason Bateman. Foxx also lent his vocal talents to 20th Century Fox's popular comedy- adventure in 3D, RIO, as a canary named Nico. RIO grossed over $450 million worldwide.

Foxx also starred in Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained as the title character, opposite Leonardo Di Caprio, Christoph Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson.

Jamie Foxx continues to expand his role as a producer. He recently executive produced a new sketch comedy series starring Affion Crockett called In the Flow with Affion Crockett for 20th Century Fox Television. Foxx also produced Thunder Soul, a documentary following the astonishing alumni from Houston's Kashmere High School Stage Band who return home after 35 years to play a tribute concert for the 92-year-old "Prof," their beloved band leader who broke the color barrier and transformed the school's jazz band.

In addition to his outstanding work in film, Foxx has also achieved a thriving career in music. In December 2010, he released his fourth album, Best Night of My Life, featuring Drake, Justin Timberlake, Rick Ross, T.I., and other artists. In January 2010, Foxx and T-Pain's record breaking #1 song "Blame It" off of his previous album, Intuition, won "Best R&B performance by a duo/group with vocals" at the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards.

Foxx delivered a hilarious cameo appearance opposite Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis in Due Date, Todd Phillips's directorial follow up to The Hangover. Foxx also appeared in Garry Marshall's box office hit romantic comedy Valentine's Day in February 2010. The film's stellar ensemble cast included: Julia Roberts, Ashton Kutcher, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Garner, Jessica Biel, George Lopez, and Patrick Dempsey.

In 2009, Foxx starred opposite Gerard Butler in Overture Films' dramatic thriller Law Abiding Citizen. Foxx continued to show his powerful affinity and respect for fictional portrayals with Joe Wright's inspirational film, The Soloist, in which he played Nathaniel Anthony Ayers- a real-life musical prodigy who developed schizophrenia and dropped out of Julliard, becoming a homeless musician who wonders the streets of Los Angeles. The film is based on a 12-part series of articles by Los Angeles Times columnist Steve Lopez, played by Robert Downey Jr.

In September 2007, Foxx appeared in The Kingdom, in which he portrayed the leader of a counter-terrorist team on the hunt for those responsible for a deadly bombing attack on Americans working in the Middle East. Foxx also closed the 2007 Sundance Film Festival with the showing of his executively produced film Life Support starring Queen Latifah. The film is an inspirational true-life story of a mother who overcame a cocaine addiction and became a positive role model and AIDS activist in the black community.

In December 2006, Foxx was seen in the critically acclaimed screen adaptation of the Broadway musical, Dreamgirls, opposite Beyonce Knowles, Jennifer Hudson, and Eddie Murphy. The film won a Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture Musical Comedy, and received a SAG nomination for Best Ensemble Cast and a nomination for a NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Motion Picture. Foxx was also nominated in the Best Actor Category for his performance as Curtis Taylor Jr.

In January 2006, Foxx announced his partnership with SIRIUS Satellite Radio to start his own 24/7 radio station called Foxxhole. The station is a combination of comedy and music.

Foxx's album Unpredictable topped the charts in late December 2005 and early 2006, as it held the number one spot for five weeks and sold over one million units in 20 days. Foxx was nominated for eight Billboard Music Awards, three Grammy Awards, one Soul Train Music Award, and two American Music Awards, where Foxx won Favorite Male Artist. The album was nominated for three Grammy Awards in 2006-including Best R&B Album; the track "Love Changes," featuring Mary J. Blige, for Best R&B Performance By a Duo or Group; and the track "Unpredictable," featuring Ludacris, for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration.

In 2005, Jamie's portrayal of the legendary Ray Charles in the Taylor Hackford-directed biopic Ray garnered him an Academy Award for Best Actor and proved to be one of his career's defining performances. In addition to winning the Oscar, Foxx shared in a SAG Award nomination received by the film's ensemble cast, and single-handedly swept the Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards, BAFTA, and NAACP Image Awards, as well as numerous critical awards for his performance in Ray, captivating audiences worldwide as the most accomplished actor of 2005.

Also in 2005, Foxx earned Oscar, Golden Globe, SAG Award, BAFTA Award, and Image Award nominations in the category of Best Supporting Actor for his work in Michael Mann's dramatic thriller Collateral, opposite Tom Cruise. But Foxx's unwavering momentum in 2005 did not stop there, as Foxx also received Golden Globe nominations, SAG Award nominations and won an Image Award for Best Actor in a Television Movie for his portrayal of condemned gang member-turned-Nobel Peace Prize nominee Stan "Tookie" Williams in the FX Network's movie Redemption.

Additional film credits include: Michael Mann's Ali, opposite Will Smith, Michael Mann's Miami Vice opposite Colin Farrell, Sam Mendes' Gulf War drama Jarhead, with Jake Gyllenhaal, Stealth, Bait, Booty Call, The Truth About Cats and Dogs, and The Great White Hype"

Foxx's big-screen break came in 1999 when Oliver Stone cast him as star quarterback Willie Beamen in Any Given Sunday, with Al Pacino.

Jamie Foxx first rose to fame as a comedian, from which he initiated a potent career trajectory of ambitious projects. After spending time in the comedy circuit, he joined Keenan Ivory Wayans, Jim Carrey, Damon Wayans and Tommy Davidson in the landmark Fox sketch comedy series, In Living Color, creating some of the show's funniest and most memorable moments. In 1996, he launched his own series, The Jamie Foxx Show, which was one of the top-rated shows on the WB Network during its five-year run. Foxx not only starred on the series, but was the co-creator and executive producer of the series, directing several episodes himself.
