Jamie Foxx          

Award-Winning Actor and Musician; Best Known for "Ray," "Django Unchained" & "Just Mercy"

An Academy Award winning actor, talented Grammy Award winning musical artist and comedian, Jamie Foxx is an elite multi-faceted performer.

Foxx became widely known for his portrayal of Ray Charles in the 2004 biographical film Ray, for which he won the Academy Award, BAFTA, Screen Actors Guild Award, Critics' Choice Movie Award and Golden Globe Award for Best Actor. That same year, he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in the crime film Collateral. Since spring 2017, Foxx has served as the host and executive producer of the Fox game show Beat Shazam.

Foxx first rose to fame as a comedian, from which he initiated a potent career trajectory of ambitious projects. After spending time in the comedy circuit, he joined Keenan Ivory Wayans, Jim Carrey, Damon Wayans and Tommy Davidson in the landmark Fox sketch comedy series, In Living Color, creating some of the show's funniest and most memorable moments. In 1996, he launched his own series, The Jamie Foxx Show, which was one of the top-rated shows on the WB Network during its five-year run. Foxx not only starred on the series, but was the co-creator and executive producer of the series, directing several episodes himself.

In 2007, Foxx launched The Foxxhole, a channel on Sirius Satellite Radio featuring talk-radio programs, stand-up comedy albums and music primarily by African-American performers, as well as much of Foxx's own material. Foxx's own talk-radio variety program "The Jamie Foxx Show" airs Friday evenings on The Foxxhole.

Foxx is also a Grammy Award-winning musician, producing four albums, which have charted in the top ten of the U.S. Billboard 200: "Unpredictable" (2005), which topped the chart, "Intuition" (2008), "Best Night of My Life" (2010), and "Hollywood: A Story of a Dozen Roses" (2015).

Foxx's other work includes: Unpredictable, Dreamgirls, Django Unchained, White House Down, Baby Driver, Spawned, and more. Recently, he played the wrongly convicted death row prisoner Walter McMillian in the drama film Just Mercy, for which he received significant critical acclaim
