It’s like ‘Die Hard’ for dumbasses. Let’s call it ‘Read Hard’.
Jay-Z has gone from selling crack and ‘Reasonable Doubt’ to putting together hip-hop musicals with Will Smith. Not jiggy, dude. UN-jiggy.
We knew to expect something silly but, whoa…
We found out that ‘Big Bang Theory’ is more offensive than slavery to some in South Central.
Smart money says he’ll be dressed like Hancock.
But will he make a good lightning guy?
The South seems a lot wackier than history class indicated.
It’s like ‘Shanghai Noon’ minus the karate.
Tarantino only did this movie for the chance to dress like Robert Rodriguez.
Oh man, I bet these bosses are gonna be sooooooo bad! Let’s go get drunk, guys!
It just wouldn’t be a Tarantino film without him.
Maybe we hated them because they are handsome…
Director: Seth GordonCast: Colin Farrell, Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis, Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Spacey, Jamie Foxx, Donald SutherlandSynopsis: Three friends conspire to murder their awful bosses when they realize they are standing in the way of their happiness.Release Date: July 29, 2011
Let’s hope these aren’t all of the best parts.
It will be interesting to see how he channels “In Living Color”s Wanda to prepare for this role.
DiCaprio is now entering actual talks to play Calvin Candie, the ruthless slave owner who could use a big dose of vitamin comeuppance.
Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis are TCB (takin’ care of business).
Jamie Foxx movies are diverse, and show off his wide range of acting skills. He started off a comedian, but soon streamlined into movies. Jamie Foxx is always a risk…
Warner Bros has dropped the new trailer for Todd Phillips‘s Due Date. We get a ton more footage in this one, as well as Robert Downey Jr. spitting directly in…
Fox has turned to Jamie Foxx to fill the offensively-unfunny-sketch-comedy-show shaped hole left by the cancellation of "Mad TV." The network picked up a twelve-episode order of "The Jamie Foxx Project," a half-hour sketch series that will skewer pop culture with a diverse cast of comedians, for mid-season.
Hopefully this won't delay the Skank Robbers film we were promised. Because we still want that. (Deadline)
Director: Todd PhillipsCast: Robert Downey Jr., Zach Galifiankis, Jamie Foxx, Michelle MonaghanSynopsis: High-strung father-to-be Peter Highman is forced to hitch a ride with aspiring actor Ethan Tremblay on a road trip in order to make it to his child's birth on time.Release Date: November 5, 2010
Kudos to Colin Farrell for going au naturale on the set of the new Seth Gordon-directed comedy Horrible Bosses. I always knew his hair was too thick and lustrous to be real. The combover does an awesome job of transforming him into a superior I'd like to stab in the ear with a Bic.Horrible Bosses follows three friends who all have horrible bosses they want to end, so they decide to swap their murders like in that old Hitchcock flick Strangers on a Train. Netflix it, ya uncultured swine. The three guys are played by Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, and Charlie Day, and the bosses are Colin Farrell as coke head exec, Kevin Spacey as a master manipulator, and Jennifer Aniston as nymphomaniac dentist. Also, Jamie Foxx plays a scam artist named Motherfucker Jones, but I'm guessing you're too busy imagining getting banged by Aniston in a dentist's chair. (NYPost)
Last time I wrote about Horrible Bosses, I told you that at least two more big names were joining the film. Well, if you'd have listened to me and my warnings, you'd be a millionaire by now (somehow). Variety is reporting that Kevin Spacey is set to join the bizzaro cast, which already includes Charlie Day, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Aniston, Colin Farrell, and Jason Bateman.The film centers around three co-workers who decide to kill their horrible bosses (hence the title), and Spacey will play one of the bosses in question. Given his previous work in Swimming with Sharks and Glengarry Glen Ross, he should have no problem with the role.
Latest Hollywood fashion trend: The Bruce Willis MaskIt looks like F. Gary Gray might be breaking Bruce Willis and Jamie Foxx out of movie jail for Kane & Lynch. Gray has topped the list of potential directors for the videogame adaptation that sees two death row inmates sprung from the klink to retrieve a stolen microchip. No official offer has been made yet but Gray has quite a bargaining chip, given the unexpected success of Law Abiding Citizen. And I can't think of better casting for this project. Look at these characters from the game:Bruce Willis and Jamie Foxx ARE these characters. Though, we'll need to break Jamie Foxx's nose for this. Line forms to the left. (THR)
I blame it on T-Pain.Just when I think I've wrapped my head around Horrible Bosses, it goes and throws me another curve ball.The first name I heard assoicated with the film was Jennifer Aniston. That's bad. But the next name I heard was Charlie Day from "Always Sunny." That's good.Then I heard Colin Farrell was joining the cast, and I was all like "Whaaaaaat?" But then Jason Bateman came on board, so I was back to "Yeeeeeeaaaah!"But now comes word that Jamie Foxx is joining the film, and my head is about to explode from all the confusion. At first glance, the addition of Foxx to the cast seems like a bad sign. He hasn't had a really good role since he won the Oscar in 2004 for Ray, and everybody knows he only won because the Academy wanted to give it to a blind guy. But on the other had, Cinema Blend is reporting that Foxx will play the role of a scam artist named Motherf*cker Jones. You don't have to be a Foxx fan to appreciate a character named Motherf*cker. But the confusion doesn't stop there. Latino Review is reporting that “There will be at least two other big announcements in the next few weeks regarding other roles." Based on what I've seen so far, my money is on Carlos Mencia and Aziz Ansari.
Gary Marshall's Valentine's Day featured some bizarre on-screen unions, and now is causing one off-screen as well. I don't know how to better describe this news item than with a shrill "Say WHAAAAAAATTTTTTT???!!!!!" Jamie Foxx is scripting a modernized adaptation of "Laverne & Shirley" as a vehicle for sisters-from-another-mister Jennifer Garner and Jessica Biel. I wouldn't mind seeing that sexy pair schlemiel one another's schlimazels if you know what I'm sayin' (note: I don't know what I'm sayin').Marshall tells TV Guide:“Jamie and I are trying to do it. He’s writing it. It’s a whole different modern day take on how they came up on the streets during difficult times. Laverne would be this very tough girl with a big ‘L’ tattooed on her arm. Jennifer Garner would play Laverne and Jessica Biel would play Shirley.”This is just great. I've been working on the gangsta version of "227" for quite some time and now everyone will think I'm ripping off Jamie Foxx's stupid urban "Laverne & Shirley." Now the world will never see Macy Gray cut a bitch while dressed as Jackée.
H-h-heeyyyyy!! Move over 1980's nostalgia because here comes an unexpected dose of 1990's "oh yeah, hey, I remember that vaguely." In further Jamie-Foxx-doesn't-want-another-Oscar news, it has been announced that he will star alongside Martin Lawrence in Sheneneh and Wanda. The title characters are the ghetto-fabulous pigeon-heads, Sheneneh Jenkins and Wanda Reid, made popular on the TV programs Martin and In Living Color. Based upon a parody trailer made for the BET Awards, the movie has the winndixie chicks robbing banks to get by. Check out the trailer after the jump. It's what Set It Off would have been like if Queen Latifah had played all the roles. (Variety)
