His name is Django and as he's quick to point out, the D is silent. It's just about the only quiet part of Quentin Tarantino's 'Django Unchained,' a boisterous, bloody blaxploitation/Western hybrid. What else would you expect from Tarantino, the modern master of genre pastiche, flavorful dialogue, and grossly exaggerated violence? Whatever 'Django''s issues -- and it has a couple -- failing to deliver on its promises isn't one of them. If anything, the issue is the exact opposite.
Last night, Saturday Night Live took on a target that's been pretty ripe for parody for some time now: the films and work of Tyler Perry, AKA, Madea, AKA, Alex Cross. In the case of this very funny digital short, it turns out that they're one in the same...literally. As in Cross and Madea are split personalities inhabiting the same body and they must work together to solve mysteries. Yeah, it's weird.
Not that it needed any help, but actor Jamie Foxx's star is certainly on the rise, with a starring role Quentin Tarantino's buzz-worthy 'Django Unchained,' his upcoming 'SNL' gig, and the recent confirmation that the Oscar-winning 'Ray' star would appear as the villainous Electro in Marc Webb's 'The Amazing Spider-Man' sequel. Does it surprise you then, to learn that Jamie Foxx will next return to TV co-writing a new TNT drama? Find out the details of TNT's new Jamie Foxx co-written cop drama 'Hit' inside!
It's that time again! This Saturday, 'SNL' returns from its brief thanksgiving break to deliver the final two episodes of 2012, the first of which airs this Saturday with two-time host Jamie Foxx and musical guest Ne-Yo. The first promos from Foxx's returning gig as 'SNL' host have hit the web with star Jason Sudeikis, so what can we expect? Will Jamie Foxx be as good as he was in 2000, or even more 'Unchained' this time around?
Quentin Tarantino films are often noted for their spectacular soundtracks but up until now, has never had an original song in one of his movies. That looks to change with 'Django Unchained' which looks to have a soundtrack filled with a number of popular hip-hop and R&B artists. So who's in?
Given the upcoming holiday, 'SNL' won't return until December 8 following this past weekend's turn with Jeremy Renner and musical guest Maroon 5. While that seems like a cruelly long wait, will the return of Jamie Foxx as our December 8 host, with musical guest Ne-Yo, make up for it? The 'Django Unchained' star will make his first 'SNL' appearance since a previous hosting gig in 2000, so what can we expect from Foxx a second time around?
Will 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' feature Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx as the villain Electro? We were all a bit floored when news hit that the 'Django Unchained' star was in talks to play this comic book character, and even moreso when he tweeted about dressing up as the electricity-hurling bad guy for Halloween. While the deal has not been finalized yet, it certainly seems like it is, especially after what 'Amazing Spider-Man' director Marc Webb had to say.
