My thoughts exactly, and I think we discussed this a bit earlier in the thread?
Hes very image conscious and the rumor is thats why he turned down the role. Anyhow, I hear Foxx is very good, maybe he will get a career bump from it. He was sorta hot a few years ago, then faded after his run at an Oscar with Ray.
