Will.i.am was in Rio de Janeiro for his new film, yep you guessed it, ‘Rio’ and ET tagged along as he hung out with his famous friends and co-stars Jamie Foxx and Anne Hathaway!
Enjoying fresh coconuts and an ocean view, Will.i.am and Jamie chatted up about the gorgeous city and lovely locals while Anne dished to Will.i.am about her new role as Catwoman for the next ‘Batman’ movie.
The stars were there promoting the new film about a domesticated macaw from Minnesota that takes off on a crazy adventure to Rio de Janeiro and also stars Jesse Eisenberg, Jane Lynch, George Lopez, Wanda Sykes and Leslie Mann.
Jamie Foxx will give an intimate, private performance at ARIA Resort & Casino at CityCenter during the 10th Annual Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational (MJCI), Friday, April 1. Foxx will perform at the MJCI Celebration, an annual gala for the tournament’s celebrities and invited guests.
The Grammy Award-winning artist will sing hits throughout the evening, including hits from his new CD “Best Night of My Life,” following performances by comedian Kevin Hart and Jabbawockeez, who rose to fame as champions of MTV’s “Randy Jackson Presents America’s Best Dance Crew.” Foxx’s performance will mark a night of celebration following two days of the MJCI Celebrity-Amateur golf tournament and lead into the weekend’s celebrity-only tournament.
Will.i.am and Jamie Foxx will debut their new track from the upcoming animated film Rio on American Idol.
“Hot Wings (I Wanna Party)” is a duet between will.i.am and Jamie Foxx in the film that opens Apr. 15. The song is not being released as a single, but will.i.am believes the song will become “a viral baton that is, in a sense, a single.”
“Nowadays, anything can get cut up and become a viral single,” will.i.am told Billboard.com during a phone interview from Rio de Janeiro, where the movie’s premiere is tonight. “I’m glad to be performing on ‘Idol.’ That will be a single, and the scene in the film acts as a music video.”
Foxx said he has spoken with will.i.am and Swizz Beatz about contributing to his R&B/Hip-hop-themed animated feature, “Welcome to the Jungle.” The film, announced a year ago, is still in the script stage, he says.
Robert Downey Jr. will interview Jamie Foxx at the Ritz-Carlton Chicago on June 4 during the Gene Siskel Film Center of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago’s annual benefit.
Foxx, who co-starred with Downey Jr. in 2009’s “The Soloist” and 2010’s “Due Date,” will be presented with the Gene Siskel Film Center Renaissance Award. Downey Jr. received the award at the 2010 benefit.
