Foxx Messed Up 'Jerry Maguire' Audition

12 October 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Jamie Foxx missed out on the chance to star alongside pal Tom Cruise in Jerry Maguire because he acted like a fool at his audition. The Ray star, who later teamed up with Cruise in Collateral, admits he made a mess of his chance to play Cuba Gooding Jr.'s role - which won the actor an Oscar - in the hit sports film, because he was overawed by Cruise. Foxx tells Playboy magazine, "I blew it, man. Maybe I wasn't ready. Tom was just too famous, and I was too young. I was a stand-up comedian, and I just f**ked it up. I was reading all loud and stuff, and Tom was very quiet. So I read my lines, and then he paused for a long time... So I said, 'Tom, it's your line.' And he looked at me and said, 'I know. I got it.'" But Foxx insists the messed up audition wasn't all bad - Cruise remembered him. He adds, "The one good thing about meeting Tom was that I told great jokes that day when we had downtime. I had everybody laughing and stuff, and he remembered me." »

He is repped by CAA, Fenton Kritzer Entertainment and attorney David Krintzman. Gooding's credits include Radio, As Good as It Gets, and Jerry Maguire. He is repped by UTA and attorneys Jake Bloom and Ralph Brescia. Reyes is one of the stars of NBC's Scrubs. She is repped by Paradigm and Leverage Management. »
