JAMIE FOXX (Staff Sgt. Sykes) became an Academy Award® winner in 2004. In addition to being awarded the Best Actor Oscar® for his portrayal of legendary musician Ray Charles in the Taylor Hackford-directed film Ray, that performance garnered Foxx a Golden Globe award, a SAG award, a BAFTA Award and the NAACP Image Award, among others.

To complement his work in Ray, Foxx was seen that year in two additional critically acclaimed roles: The first was in Redemption, the real-life story of Stan "Tookie” Williams that aired on the FX Network. Williams, who founded the Los Angeles street gang the Crips, was sentenced to life in prison, reformed his life while in jail and re-concentrated his efforts to help inner-city youth and anti-violence resolutions which earned him multiple Nobel Peace Prize nominations. Foxx was nominated for Golden Globe, SAG and NAACP Image awards for his performance. The second was in Collateral, co-starring Tom Cruise, where he plays a cab driver who finds himself the hostage of an engaging contract killer as he makes his rounds from hit to hit during one night in Los Angeles. The film reunited Foxx with director Michael Mann who directed him in Ali. The role earned him Golden Globe, SAG and NAACP Image awards and an Oscar® nomination for Best Supporting Actor.

Foxx was the first person to be nominated for three acting awards at the Golden Globes and four SAG awards in the same year. He is the first African American to be nominated for two Oscars® in the same year, and the second male in history to receive two Oscar® acting nominations in the same year for two different movies. Currently Foxx is filming Miami Vice, based on the popular television program from the 1980s. Directed once again by Michael Mann, Foxx and Colin Farrell will portray the infamous detective pair, Crockett and Tubbs. The film is slated to be released summer 2006.

Foxx started his career in Hollywood as a comedian. After spending time on the comedy circuit, he joined the landmark Fox sketch comedy series In Living Color. For three years he was seen alongside Jim Carrey, Damon Wayans and Tommy Davidson in some of the funniest and most memorable television moments. Foxx then went on to star in The Jamie Foxx Show for the WB Network for five years. Foxx not only starred in the series, but was also the co-creator, executive producer and director of several episodes.

Foxx's big film break came in 1999 when Oliver Stone cast him as Willie Beamen in the Warner Bros. film Any Given Sunday, alongside Al Pacino. In 2001, he played Drew "Bundini” Brown in the Columbia Pictures film Ali, opposite Will Smith and directed by Michael Mann. Foxx followed "Ali” with his first HBO Comedy Special, Jamie Foxx: I Might Need Security in February 2002.

Foxx's other movie credits include Stealth for Columbia Pictures; Bait, directed by Antoine Fuqua; Booty Call, which starred Tommy Davidson and Vivica A. Fox. He co-starred with Janeane Garafolo and Uma Thurman in the 20th Century Fox hit The Truth About Cats & Dogs, and with Samuel L. Jackson, Damon Wayans and Jeff Goldblum in The Great White Hype.

In addition to his work in front of the camera, Foxx has a thriving music career. He was nominated for two Grammy Awards in 2005 for his work with Kanye West. He wrote, produced and performed two songs featured on the Any Given Sunday soundtrack, which debuted at number one on the Billboard soundtrack chart. In Fall 2005, Foxx will release a full-length album and will be doing a music special for NBC.

Foxx was born and raised in Texas and went on to study classical music at the United States International University in San Diego. He currently resides in California.
