Jamie Foxx Blames The State Of Comedy For Why We Might Not Ever See His 2016 Film “All-Star Weekend” In Which Robert Downey Jr. Plays A Mexican Man
As Variety reports, Jamie Foxx says his 2016 directorial feature debut, All-Star Weekend, a comedy starring Foxx and Jeremy Piven as “two best friends who win tickets to the annual NBA event” whose road trip to LA is “upended by a handful of wacky characters,” might never be released due to the “current state of comedy.” Jamie apparently doesn’t think we can handle a wacky character like “Mexican Stranger,” played by Robert Downey Jr. Alas, it seems the so-called woke mob has struck again. First, they came for The Alamo, but I was not a history major and am unclear on how exactly that played out— so I said nothing. Then they came for Señor Frog’s Cinco de Mayo $2 margarita special, but I did not have one near me— so I said nothing. Then they came for my Mexican pizza and I said, OH HEEEEELL NO!— And they brought it back. So obviously the point here is that if Jamie wants All-Star-Weekend to ever see the light of day, he needs to recast “Mexican Stranger” with Doja Cat and do some reshoots.
