Jamie Foxx Expressing Interest in More Comic Book Roles


Actor Jamie Foxx, soon to be seen on the big screen as the Spider-Man classic baddie, Electro, seems to have gotten a taste for the comic book movie world. In a recent interview, the actor expressed that he’s hot on the hunt for a chance to portray another very popular character that you may have heard of – Spawn.

In his interview, Foxx had this to say about his desired future roles:

Spawn is one, yeah. And Mike Tyson. Those are two roles I would just love to do. I’m aggressively pursuing them

Aggressively pursuing them, eh Foxx? Looks like the dude is serious, not just dropping a Hollywood wish list into the press and hoping someone gives him a call. That also means that both a Mike Tyson and a Spawn flick are likely being worked on somewhere (news that may have slipped by my radar…).

What do you kids in Nerd Reader-land think? Does Foxx have what it takes to wear the shoes of Spawn? What about Mike Tyson? Or should we just cut out the middle-man altogether and get Mike Tyson to play Spawn?

Thanks to BleedingCool for the heads-up.
