Jamie King (Jamie Foxx) is an aspiring actor from Terrell, Texas, who has come to Los Angeles to pursue a career in entertainment. To support himself, he works in his family's hotel, the financially strapped King's Tower, which is owned by his aunt and uncle, Helen and Junior King (Ellia English and Garrett Morris). Written by
Andy Berman, who played Dennis, the bellhop, was a main character during the first season. However, the syndicated versions of this show removed his name and image from the opening credits, making him to appear as a recurring character. This is probably due to the fact that his character disappeared after season one, and wasn't seen or mentioned afterward. See more »
Man, this show takes me back! The Jamie Foxx show was too funny for
words. The things this man said and did on his show was hilarious. I
use to love this character he use to play named Tryone Coppel. Tyrone
Coppel was basically the black version of Ted Coppel and he would say
things like "Westside" and "back up off me" in Ted Coppels voice. There
were also a lot of in-jokes on this show about the city of Los Angeles,
and if you don't live in LA like I do or are familiar with the city,
you probably won't get them. This show followed a really simple formula
but it was still hilarious. I also liked the guy who played Braxton P.
Hartnabrig. This guy is responsible for coining the word "bro-ham" and
was a funny straight man for Foxx. Uncle Junior King played by the
great Garret Morris was also hilarious as Jamie's cheap-skate uncle. If
you want to laugh out loud, then I suggest you check out the Jamie Foxx
show. Season 1 is out on DVD now.
