JAMIE FOXX SURPRISES DAUGHTER WITH CASTING NEWS
Even before the premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 with Jamie Foxx starring as ‘Max Dillon/Electro,’ Jamie already has a number one fan in the person of his 4-year-old daughter. Foxx recently told Access Hollywood that his little girl was so excited to hear that her dad would be portraying the evil character in the upcoming superhero film.
“[She] dressed as Spider-Man for Halloween and had a Spider-Man jumper. Yesterday, I took her to the set, she didn’t know [that I had been cast], and she says, ‘What is this?’ I said, ‘Daddy’s going to be in ‘Spider-Man.’ She says, ‘Is Spider-Man going to beat you up?’ and I said, ‘I don’t know.” She says, ‘Good,’” explained Foxx.
In addition to his daughter’s excitement, Jamie is also happy about his new role telling Access, “It’s an amazing ride. So, it’s humbling and just a lot of fun.” Max will be Spider-Man’s number one villain in the upcoming film, attempting to destroy the main character with electricity.
Foxx has two children in all.
