“Extra’s” AJ Calloway caught up with Jamie Foxx in San Francisco, where he’ll attend the big game on Super Bowl Sunday.
Jamie revealed that he wanted the Carolina Panthers to have their winning moment at the Super Bowl. “I think Carolina has a strong chance to win.” Foxx was more than happy to be in San Francisco to celebrate the 50th Super Bowl, and gave an impression of Cam Newton’s touchdown “dab” victory dance.
During the interview, Foxx also reflected about saving a man’s life after a fiery car crash in front of his California home in January.
He may have played a supervillain on screen, but in the real world Jamie Foxx is a superhero!
The Oscar winner actor rescued a man involved in a car crash outside his California home on Monday night.
The accident happened at 8:30 p.m. after the driver lost control of the vehicle, skidded off the road and flipped the car in front of the actor’s gate. After calling 911, Jamie and another witness unbuckled the man and carried him about 30 feet away from the scene for safety.
“Two witnesses that were near the collision scene ran to the burning, overturned truck in an attempt to free the driver. One of the witnesses retrieved a rescue tool from his vehicle allowing the two citizens to break the window, cut the seat belt, and extricate the driver,” police said in the release.
The 32-year-old driver was taken to the hospital with major injuries, including burns. The driver was later arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol, according to the police statement.
UPDATE: Jamie opened up to reporters on Tuesday about rescuing a 32-year-old man from a burning car crash.
Jamie Foxx has been recruited to play Little John in Robin Hood: Origins, Lionsgate’s revamp of the classic English tale. He joins Kingsman: The Secret Service star Taron Egerton, who plays the title role, and Eve Hewson (Bridge of Spies), who is set to play Maid Marian.
Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way is producing the project which will be directed by Otto Bathurst. Filming for Robin Hood: Origins is expected to begin this fall.
Jamie Foxx was a proud papa while arriving on the red carpet with his daughter Corinne who served as Miss Golden Globe at Sunday’s awards ceremony.
Jamie couldn’t help having some fun while presenting an award at the ceremony. He was onstage with his co-star on the upcoming movie Baby Driver, Lily James to announce the winner of the Best Original Score. When he opened the envelope, he pulled a Steve Harvey and announced that Straight Outta Compton had won, even though they weren’t nominated. And it wasn’t the only joke Jamie delivered. Check out the video below.
