Jamie Foxx - 'The Soloist' Interview with Kam Williams

There are 4 comments on the www.eurweb.com story from Apr 24, 2009, titled Jamie Foxx - 'The Soloist' Interview with Kam Williams. In it, www.eurweb.com reports that:

Here, Jamie Foxx talks about his new movie, The Soloist (opening this weekend), a true story in which he plays Nathaniel Ayers, a Juilliard-trained child prodigy, who ended up homeless after developing schizophrenia. In the film, Ayers is befriended by Steve Lopez (Robert Downey, Jr.), an L.A. Times reporter who hears him playing the violin in the park.

Kam Williams: Jamie, I loved The Soloist and I’m so honored to get this time with you.

Jamie Foxx: Thank you, bro. KW: My first question is, did you get to meet Nathaniel Ayers on the streets in preparing to portray him?

JF: Yes I did. As a matter of fact, I snuck downtown with a little bit of a disguise and a security cat, and I just hung out right next to Nathaniel. He had no idea that I was watching him. I got a chance to see him speak to the world, and get excited, and be happy, and sad, and play his music. And I saw him preach. Watching that I was able to gather a lot of great information about who this guy was that I was about to play, without hearing anybody’s opinion of him, but just from my firsthand look at him. Later, I was formally introduced to him, and he was on his best behavior. He smiled because he gets it that they were going to do a movie about his life. And then you see him not get it, and wondering, “What’s going n here?” And then he’d swing back around and get it again. So, it was very interesting. And while all that was happening, I had a video camera on my phone that I used to record him the whole time. So, I came home, watched that footage, the footage I filmed when he wasn’t watching, and the footage I filmed when he was aware.

Why would anyone want to go see Jamie Foxx and pay money to do so? His diatribe against Miley, a 16 year old girl, is nothing short of his ghetto style that he has hidden from all of us until now.

I actually like Jamie. He does go overboard with his jokes but I think he happens to be talented especially with his voice. Well as for acting he did win an Oscar. So obviously some like him.

That's right. Anyone who dares speak agains princess Miley must die. He will remember his mistake when Miley destroys him just she destroyed Radiohead.

I could care less about Miley's talent or her career....I do care about a 40 something actor's unbelievable tirade against a 16 year old girl.
