What The Foxx Says

Katie's Take

Jamie Foxx has a lot going on these days, and even with a busy schedule, he still has time to be a pretty cool dad.

Jamie is currently shooting his new movie "Annie," in which he will play the Daddy Warbucks character. He even gave Katie some insight into how his character will be portrayed on the big screen.

"I'm [playing] a cellular phone mogul," Jamie said, "running through the streets of New York, trying to be Mayor."

Cameron Diaz will also star in the much anticipated movie.

"How funny is that?" said Katie.

"She's hilarious," Jamie noted, "It's great to be able to do something that's going to be looked at for years."

"Well, I’m looking forward to seeing it, because I love the musical,” Katie added.

One person who is also sure to love the movie is Jamie’s youngest daughter Annalise – who just turned 5 – and had a pretty great surprise at her recent birthday party.

“We had an 'Iron Man' theme party, and she says, ‘Dad, I told everybody I know Tony Stark,’" Jamie recalled. "I said, ‘Well, Robert Downey, Jr. isn’t coming to your birthday party so you have to go figure that out.’”

Long story short – Jamie texted Robert Downey, Jr. – and Tony Stark came through. He even stopped by with “Iron Man” toys for everybody.

“He hung out,” Jamie said, “I’m indebted to that dude.”
