STEALTH

JAMIE FOXX (Lt. Henry Purcell) recently won the Academy Award® and the Golden Globe for his universally lauded performance as the great Ray Charles in Taylor Hackford's biographical drama Ray. He also earned Oscar® and Golden Globe nominations as Best Supporting Actor for his role in Michael Mann's thriller Collateral, in which he starred opposite Tom Cruise, as well as a Golden Globe nomination as Best Actor in a Mini-Series or Movie Made for Television for "Redemption,” the true life tale of Tookie Williams, one of the founding fathers of the notorious Crips street gang in Los Angeles.

Over the past few years Foxx has starred in his own successful TV sitcom, become a top film leading man, sold out venues with his stand-up comedy tour and served as award-show host for the MTV Video Music Awards and ESPY Awards.

The performance that first brought Foxx critical acclaim was his role as an upand- coming pro quarterback in Oliver Stone's football-themed drama Any Given Sunday. In addition to his work in front of the camera, Foxx wrote, produced and performed two songs featured on the film's soundtrack. He followed Any Given Sunday with another lauded performance in Michael Mann's Ali opposite Will Smith. He followed it with his first HBO Comedy Special "Jamie Foxx: I Might Need Security,” which aired in February 2002.

For three years, Foxx co-starred with Jim Carrey, Damon Wayans and Tommy Davidson on the landmark comedy series "In Living Color.” He also had a recurring role on another series, "Roc,” in which he played the hilarious Crazy George. His own series, "The Jamie Foxx Show,” ran for five successful seasons on the WB. Foxx not only starred, but was also the show's co-creator, an executive producer and the director of several episodes.

On the big screen Foxx has also starred in the action-comedy Bait directed by Antoine Fuqua, to which he also contributed a soundtrack song. Other film credits include Booty Call with Tommy Davidson and Vivica A. Fox, a co-starring role opposite Janeane Garofalo and Uma Thurman in The Truth About Cats and Dogs and The Great White Hype with Samuel L. Jackson, Damon Wayans, and Jeff Goldblum.
