Jamie Foxx: My Daughter ‘Will Go Crazy’ If I Land Electro In Spider-Man 2

Access Hollywood

Jamie Foxx isn’t the only one excited about potentially playing Electro in the upcoming “The Amazing Spider-Man” sequel.

The actor confirmed to Access Hollywood that his casting in the upcoming movie is “in the works,” and said his young daughter will be over the moon if he lands the role of the voltage-wielding villain. (Cinema, Jamie Foxx, The Amazing Spider-Man 2)

Awww man...this is not good. If he gets the role, I'm going to pretty well be at the point of writing this off as a turd.
ReconHope  +   654d ago
I guess celebrity family opinions count as news. sigh.
Crazay  +   654d ago
Dude, how is it not news? A)its an interview and b) confirms his potential involvement.

So much unnecessary hate.
Soldierone  +   654d ago
How come no one else has stepped into the rumor circle? Jamie Foxx can't be the only person they are trying to put in the role, there has to be someone that actually suits it somewhere....
alycakes  +   654d ago
I don't think he fits the bill either.
DarkBlood  +   654d ago
i dont know about you but i think its pretty obvious here lol
Crazay  +   654d ago
Ya I think it's pretty well a done deal unfortunately.
Soldierone  +   653d ago
Pretty sure this won't turn into a "well look at Heath Ledger joker" thing either, it WILL be bad
DarkBlood  +   653d ago
i was thinking of the heath ledger thing it may or may not end well but then again i was never really disapointed with these kind of things maybe my definition of enjoyment is just different that i dont tend to look for failures
extermin8or  +   654d ago
hmm never seen him in anything who knows could play the part well or could kill it, personally I think it's an odd choice of villain and might seem rather stupid in a film and not a comic or game etc but who knows?
OneAboveAll  +   654d ago
If this happens the movie will bomb. For one, Electro isn't black. In any of the universes within the Marvel Universe, Whether it be Earth-616, Earth-3490 blah blah. Never seen a black Electro.

Second, he's a terrible actor.
dboyc310  +   654d ago
He's a descent actor but I agree with you that electro ain't black. Of the costume was made to cover the whole body then yea I guess it will work but that isn't the case.
Pozzle  +   653d ago
I don't mind what race the actor is if they can pull off the essence of the original character. Can Jamie Foxx do that though? Probably not, tbh...
LUCKYXS7LEVEN  +   653d ago
i would like to point out Robert D. Jr pulled a Black guy in tropic thunder so who knows
extermin8or  +   653d ago
lol n fairness I think it's easier to make a white person look black than it is to make a black person look white in terms of the whole makeup and the colours etc. Infact is the latter even possible without it being really obvious? Secondly Robert D Jr is pretty much a legend lol his actings great, no idea what this guys actings like but they cast decent actors for the 1st film I can't see them allowing someone as bad at acting as people say be cast on the film especially when he doesn't actually fit the traditional look for that character in the source material. So hopefully it will be fine also we don't know how major a part he's going to play he could just be like a sub plot seeing as the info on Mary Janes casting would suggest Gwen dies at the end of the next film which of course means Green goblin must rear his head and whoever is cast as that part will automatically take central stage as the villain overall even if he's not suppossed to. (Casting info said Mary Jane was only a fairly minor role for this next film but would be a major role throughout the 3rd.)

a terrible actor?
he did win an Oscar you know.

i don't recall any storylines featuring Electro where the colour of his skin was in any way important.

and hey, Kingpin wasn't black either.
Crazay  +   653d ago
True Kingpin wasn't a black man...do you remember how awesome that movie was? Ya neither does anyone else
hazelamy  +   651d ago
yeah, but Michael Clarke Duncan was the best thing in it.
aNDROiD17_  +   654d ago
this movie is gunna go to shit and i will be the happiest man on earth!
sam raimis will always be better
extermin8or  +   653d ago
So they are over and him and all those actors are done with the franchise. Time to move on you like those ones but plenty of people want to see another good spiderman movie so why wish that it ends up crap just because you like the previous iteration? What stops them co-existing as decent movies? (minus Spiderman 3 that was really disappointing compared to the first 2 :( ) although I think Sam Raimi's were bogged down by their cast Kirsten Dunst and Tobey Maguire irritated the shit out of me. both were so damn whiny. Much prefer the casting so far for the new films and so I will trust that if they've cast him it's because he CAN pull it off...
