ABCs 2013: (F) Jamie Foxx

Eric Marlon Bishop (born December 13, 1967), known professionally as Jamie Foxx, is an African-American actor, singer-songwriter, stand-up comedian, and talk radio host. As an actor, his work in the film Ray earned him the Academy Award and BAFTA Award for Best Actor as well as the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a musical/comedy. He is also a Grammy Award winning musician, producing three albums which have charted highly on the Billboard 200. I never thought I would EVER write about this man but regardless of that fact, I have to admit that 2012 have been good to Foxx. In reading randomly, Foxx is the only actor to be nominated three times for a golden globe in a single year (Collateral, Ray, and Redemption in 2004). After viewing Django Unchained, I have to admit that Foxx is a force on screen in the right vehicle. He is funny, dramatic, and conveys the emotions that carry a movie.
