There’s no question that Jamie Foxx is a good actor, but drama chops not withstanding, I dunno if I can take him seriously as the villain Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. I could care less about the whole black dude playing a white character thing; I’m not that shallow. It’s the whole smurf on crack make-up that’s giving me a comical impression. Maybe, though, his performance will make up for his blue-meanie appearance?
Appearing on “The Tonight Show,” Jamie Foxx spoke with Jay Leno about his turn as Max “Electro” Dillon in Marc Webb’s TASM2, revealing the voice he’s going to be using for the character. Check out the interview segment below:
I really hope he’s joking about the Electro voice. Otherwise, this is Christian Bale’s graveling Batman all over again. *shakes head*
Also starring Shailene Woodley, Colm Feore, Sally Field and Chris Cooper, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits theaters on May 2, 2014.
