Versatile actor, singer and comedian Jamie Foxx may have a chance to play the most powerful man on the planet…The President of the United States.
Variety.com is reporting that the Oscar-winning star is being strongly considered for the presidential role in a new Sony action drama called “White House Down.” Foxx will star opposite Channing Tatum, who will play a Secret Service agent who tries to defend the president when a paramilitary group takes over the White House and holds everyone inside hostage.
Although, no potential cast has been announced [I think Regina King would play a perfect FLOTUS] or any offers made, the film’s director Roland Emmerich is said to have his eyes solely on the popular actor. Foxx is also said to be very interested in the role too and reps have already reached out to the filmmaker. This may be another Oscar-nominated performance?
Foxx is currently starring in Quentin Tarantino’s new film “Django Unchained.” Check out the newly released trailer below:
