Jamie Foxx Pushed To The Limit via The Soloist, Jet and Uptown

In addition to having the number one single “Blame It” at Billboard, Jamie Foxx is set to recapture the Hollywood spotlight with the anticipated film “The Soloist”. But, that’s not all… Foxx is also covering several forthcoming magazines including this week’s JET ! Speaking with JET about “The Soloist” Foxx explains why the film was one of the most challenging roles he’s every played and in effect the difficulty in letting himself go. In “The Soloist” Jamie Foxx breaks into the true story of Nathaniel Ayers, a Julliard musician and musical prodigy who becomes schizophrenic and eventually homeless. As Foxx explained recently, portraying Ayers in the film, also starring Robert Downey Jr, was frightening due to his fear of “going crazy”. “Doing this movie I asked a psychiatrist “can I catch schizophrenia ?,” Foxx told Access Hollywood. “He said you can have those feelings… and post traumatic stress.” In related news, Foxx also covers a special three cover edition of Uptown Magazine (see here) with the headline “Triple Threat: The Soloist and Why He’ll Never Get Married”. ‘The Soloist’ is due in theaters April 24.
