Jamie Foxx Describes The Opening Scene Of Scorsese’s ‘Tyson’ Movie… And It Sounds Awesome!

24 April 2015 4:23 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Jamie Foxx is currently preparing to star in a new biopic based on the life of legendary, though controversial boxer Mike Tyson in a movie to be directed by none other than Martin Scorsese.

The actor gave an interview to Hot97, the world’s most popular hip-hop station this week, where he talked about the film, and it sounds awesome, and very, very, Scorsese.

Terrence Winter (who worked with Scorsese on the brilliant The Wolf Of Wall Street) will write the screenplay.

The interview was video taped and you can hear Foxx describe in great detail the film’s opening scene. He seems to have Tyson’s voice down already. Can’t wait.

Watch it below.

If people are thinking twice about joining Tinder, this will definitely have them changing their minds. Jamie Foxx stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! Thursday and gave viewers a treat they never knew they needed: He sang Tinder profiles. Are you confused as to what that might entail? Well, let us explain. Jimmy Kimmel displayed several people's Tinder profiles (faces blurred) and had the "Gold Digger" rapper sing the "About Me" section of each and every one. Taking on different voices and different beats, Foxx somehow made even though most questionable characters sound somewhat appealing. Then again, we might just be dreaming about a date with the Django Unchained actor. "Let me hear you »

Best of Late Night TV: Jamie Foxx Sings Tinder Profiles and Simon Cowell Speaks About One Direction Split (Video)

17 April 2015 12:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Zayn Malik recently parted ways with One Direction, and Simon Cowell spoke out about his departure on "The Late Late Show." Simon joked that he was "about to jump off a cliff" when he heard the news, and that he definitely tried to make Zayn stay with the band. Also, apparently 1D's newest album is going to be the best yet. Thank god.

In slightly less dramatic, life-altering news, James Corden teamed up with Michael Douglas for a remake of "Basic Instinct," in which he played Sharon Stone. So much leg-crossing and crotch-blurring, so little time.

Tons of amazing things happened on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," but let's start with Betty White, »

25 years later: How 'In Living Color' broke sketch comedy's race barrier

14 April 2015 9:01 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In the summer of 1989, while Spike Lee's "Do the Right Thing" was sounding a thunderclap in cinemas, a troupe of largely black actors and comedians came together on a Fox sound stage in Century City to produce a sketch comedy show aimed at servicing a minority point of view that had been underrepresented by the medium. With producer Keenen Ivory Wayans at the helm, fresh off the success of his 1988 Blaxploitation parody film "I'm Gonna Git You Sucka," eight individuals — a then-unknown Jim Carrey along with Kelly Coffield, Kim Coles, Tommy Davidson, David Alan Grier, T'Keyah "Crystal" Keymáh and Wayans' siblings Damon and Kim — filmed the first episodes of "In Living Color." The show debuted on April 15, 1990, and 25 years later, Damon Wayans can't help but remember first and foremost that he had hair back then. "I remember the pain of getting fired from 'Saturday Night Live' and feeling that I needed redemption, »

Jamie Foxx, Diddy Show Support of ‘Brotherly Love’ Premiere

14 April 2015 12:52 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Cast members, friends and special guests Sean “Diddy” Combs and Jamie Foxx gathered at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood on Monday night for the premiere of “Brotherly Love,” a West Philly-set love story executive produced by Queen Latifah.

Keke Palmer stars in the drama about a family struggling to make major life decisions after the death of its patriarch. Palmer plays Jackie, an aspiring musician trying to navigate her budding career and her tumultuous relationship with her boyfriend, while her brother Sergio (Eric D. Hill Jr.) is the nation’s number one high school basketball player confronting the pressures of fame.

“I felt like my generation never had a film that depicts teen life in a very authentic way,” Palmer said, emphasizing that the film allows for “really experiencing the subjects of sex, violence, poverty — all the things that go with coming of age.”

Palmer’s point was reiterated by co-star Quincy Brown. »
