Jamie Foxx stoped by to BET’s 106&Park last night to talk about his upcoming movie “Rio”
As an Oscar winning actor and a Grammy winning singer, Jamie Foxx is willing to take on new challenges with his two passions: acting and singing. His latest foray, Rio (in theaters April 15), has him working both.
In Rio, cerulean- colored macaw, Blu (voiced by Oscar nominee Jesse Eisenberg) and his human companion, Linda (Leslie Mann), are invited to Rio de Janeiro so Tulio (Rodrigo Santoro), a bird scientist in the exotic city, can mate the domesticated and last remaining male, Blu, with the last remaining female, Jewel (voiced by Oscar host Anne Hathaway). When Blu and Jewel are given some private time to get to know each other, they are kidnapped by poachers looking to score money for a pair of rare birds.
Jamie Foxx did an interview with FOX’s Amy Kaufeldt and he told her what it was like to lend his voice to the animated film.
Rio has grabbed the top spot at the UK box office in it’s opening weekend. The movie took £1.5 million ($2.4 million) over the weekend.
