Jamie Foxx, Character Actor, Doesn't Wish to be Tom Cruise or Will Smith

by at . Comments

He's an Oscar winner and one of the more popular actors in Hollywood. Nevertheless, Jamie Foxx doesn't see his future as a leading man.

"You've got to have a character that you can take now and you're happy to be known for ... I've been lucky - in Any Given Sunday it was Willie Beamen; in Collateral it was Max; and in Ali it was Bundini. That's where I believe I'm at my best," he said.

"To be the leading man, it's about the celebrity and the looks and it's tough to do that. People who do it great are people like Tom Cruise and Will Smith - they're built for that."

Foxx says he's more of a "character guy." He's also not insane. Or the father of an imaginary baby.
