Jamie Foxx

While he’s known around the world now as Jamie Foxx, the actor was born Eric Marlon Bishop in Terrell, Texas on December 13, 1967. He started playing piano at just five years old, going on to become his local church’s choir leader as a teenager. After graduating from high school, Foxx studied classical music at United States International University.

In 1989, Foxx began performing at open mic nights at comedy clubs and was hired as a cast member on the sketch comedy show “In Living Color” in 1991. As Foxx’s popularity grew, he went on to star on his own sitcom, “The Jamie Foxx Show,” which ran from 1996 to 2001, during which time he also appeared in a number of films. Some of Foxx’s early movies included “Booty Call,” “The Players Club” and “Held Up.”

Foxx showed off his dramatic acting chops for the first time in the 1999 football drama “Any Given Sunday.” His role in the film lead to supporting roles alongside Will Smith in 2001’s “Ali” and Tom Cruise in 2004’s “Collateral,” for which he received an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor. Foxx became a bonafide movie star and leading man with the 2004 Ray Charles biopic “Ray,” for which he won the Oscar for Best Actor. From 2005 to 2011, the actor went on to star in such hit films as “Jarhead,” “Miami Vice,” Dreamgirls,” “The Kingdom” and “Law Abiding Citizen,” cementing his status as a bankable movie star.

In 2012, Foxx starred in Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained,” which became one of the biggest hits of the actor’s career. He followed up the film with roles in “White House Down,” “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” “Annie” and “Baby Driver.” Foxx’s upcoming films include a “Robin Hood” reboot and his feature film writing/directing debut, “All-Star Weekend,” a sports comedy in which he also co-stars.

Although Foxx is best known for his film work, the actor is also an accomplished musician who’s released several albums over the years, including 2005’s “Unpredictable,” 2008’s “Intuition” and 2010’s “Best Night of My Life.” Some of his musical collaborators have included Kanye West, Justin Timberlake, T.I., Ne-Yo and Lil’ Kim.

Foxx is the father of two daughters from previous relationships. His eldest, Corrine, was born in 1994, followed by Annalise in 2009. Foxx keeps his love life private, but he’s been most recently linked to Katie Holmes. The actor and actress have been spotted together at various events and on public outings from late 2017 to the present.
