JAMIE FOXX (Nico), an Academy Award winning actor, talented
Grammy Award winning musical artist, and comedian, is one of Hollywood's rare
elite and multi-faceted performers.
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, Foxx 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's big-screen break came in 1999 when Oliver Stone cast him in "Any Given
Sunday," with Al Pacino. In 2005, Jamie's portrayal of the legendary Ray Charles
in the Taylor Hackford-directed biopic "Ray" earned him an Academy Award for
Best Actor and proved to be a defining performance in his career.
Jamie can next be seen in Marc Webb's "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," for Sony
Pictures, alongside Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, set for a May 2 release. In
December 2014, Foxx will play Benjamin Stacks, an update of the character Daddy
Warbucks, in a contemporary adaptation of the musical "Annie" for director Will
Gluck and Sony Pictures.
Foxx starred in Roland Emmerich's "White House Down," and in Quentin
Tarantino's critically acclaimed "Django Unchained." Additional film credits
include "The Soloist," "The Kingdom," "Dreamgirls," "Miami Vice," "Jarhead,"
"Collateral" and "Ali."
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 his previous album "Intuition," won Best R&B Performance by a Duo/Group
