Jamie showed his support for director F. Gary Gray as he got his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Tuesday afternoon.
Grey started his career as a music video director, receiving Grammy nominations for “Ms. Jackson” by Outkast and “How Come, How Long” by Babyface. He also directed the music videos “It Was a Good Day” by Ice Cube, “I Believe in You and Me” by Whitney Houston and “Waterfalls” by TLC.
Gray made his feature film directing debut with the 1995 comedy Friday. He also directed The Italian Job, Straight Outta Compton and Law Abiding Citizen starring Jamie Foxx.
“Coming from a young, black kid from South Central to having your name on these streets forever, they can never take it away from you,” Foxx said. “We will always marvel it, we will always lift you up and we will always stop the record to say F. Gary Gray is in the house.”
