Jamie Foxx Is Still In The Hospital After Three Weeks, And Those Close To Him Are Asking For Prayers (UPDATE)
Jamie Foxx was recently hospitalized in Atlanta for an undisclosed “medical complication” he suffered on the set of his film Back in Action, and even though when it was announced, it sounded like he was already on the road to recovery, three weeks later, he still isn’t back in action. It looks like the matter may be serious; a source close to Jamie shared that his loved ones are now requesting that everyone “pray for Jamie.”
After a sudden medical emergency on the Atlanta set of his new movie Back In Action (aka Cameron Diaz’s comeback movie), Jamie Foxx was taken to the hospital, where he’s recovering. That leaves him out of action for the time being. It’s currently unknown what the complication was, but it was serious enough for his family to pull up to the hospital in case things took a turn for the worse.
Back in 2014, Cameron Diaz announced her early retirement from acting, robbing us of our dreams to witness her in her Meryl Streep era. Then Cameron flip-flopped saying she’s coming out of retirement to star in the Jamie Foxx movie Back In Action. But apparently, things on set have been a little messy, and it’s got Cameron ready to retire from acting again- making her the Tom Brady of the film industry. Way to go, Jamie!
As we all know too well, Kanye West firmly believes that slavery was a choice. And since we know that Kanye is prone to making Choice after Choice after Choice, it shouldn’t be surprising to learn that at one point, Kanye thought it would be a good choice for him to dress up like a slave and sing and dance for Quentin Tarantino for a music video/mini movie for his 2004 hit Gold Digger. Quentin, also a big fan of Choices, thought that was “a really, really funny idea,” but the collaboration never came to pass. So the world dodged a bullet we never even knew was headed our way, but we did get sprayed with a cache of N-words a few years later in 2012 when Django Unchained came out, which Kanye would like credit for. However, while promoting his new book on Jimmy Fallon Live, QT made it clear that credit for each and every one of those N-words is to be credited to him, and him alone. Quentin will get no argument from me on this point. As I always say, “your body (of work,) your Choice.”
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.
Jennifer Lawrence, Angelina Jolie, And Jamie Foxx Reportedly Turned Down Roles In David O. Russell’s New Movie
Just yesterday we learned that Taylor Swift was going to keep on trying to establish herself as a musician-slash-actress, with a role in David O. Russell’s new film, which is rumored to be possibly titled Canterbury Glass. Naturally, I assumed that Taylor’s casting was some kind of Plan B pretty blonde backup situation, due to David O. Russell’s “muse” Jennifer Lawrence not being in the movie. As it turns out, David reportedly did ask Jennifer Lawrence if she wanted to work with him for the fourth time, and sources say she, and others like Angelina Jolie and Jamie Foxx, turned him down.
