Could be great or could be terrible.

Foxx is a terrific actor, but that doesn't mean **** when all the parts that could develop Maxwell Dillon could end up on the chopping block like with Connors' development.

I'm with you.

He's got this hammy personality that really turns me off.

I'll grant he's got some acting chops and an oscar to boot, but I'd much rather someone else get the role. He really annoys me.

If it's Foxx, I'm imagining they'll cover up that network of tats all over his upper body.

Hmmm...different strokes, I guess. I see him as a quality actor. I thought he was very good in Ray, Collateral, Ali, The Kingdom, Jarhead, Dreamgirls, The Soloist, and he looks to be outstanding in Django. Very few misses, and a lot of his misses were just bad movies period.

You're not Jamie Foxx, are you?

That looks like something he would post.

I'm not the biggest Foxx fan but suprisingly I smiled and said where did this come from. It seems like on all fronts this would be an awful decision but I can imagine Jamie transforming himself into the role and trying to be the best villain in any Spider-Man movie. I didn't think he could play a character until I saw Ray and that was one of the best performances I've seen portraying someone else. PERIOD! He would not have been cast if he could not handle the role. I'll wait until I see the movie. I was one of the few who supported Ledger while others berated him and said the cowboy without watching his other films. I'll wait to hear from Foxx on how he plans to take on the role and a screenshot and trailer. Good luck Foxx.

I did see your "I hate Jamie Foxx almost as much as Tyrese" post earlier. But no, I'm not. I do wonder how you hate him so much though. There are a lot of crap actors working today that get by based on looks or luck. Plenty of better candidates to hate, IMO.

He was good in Ali, though. Other movies like someone else said half the movies he played in were just bad movies.

Foxx could be a good choice. As someone mentioned already, I see Electro in this franchise as being a cocky nutjob but someone who is deep down just an ordinary joe, and someone who will come good in the end. I think this type of portrayal is right up Foxx's street.

I had hoped for someone like Ryan Gosling.

We just chatted to Marc Webb. He said it's too early to confirm Jamie Foxx as Electro, but "we're really excited about that prospect." #ASM2

I really hope he doesn't become good in the end.

It's probably because he's a goofy looking cross dresser who is wasting potentially iconic black roles.

He's not a badass. Never will be. Save those roles for a black actor who doesn't look like a goomba.

Excited for that prospect should mean keeping all and any footage of Electro in the sequel

I'm not a Gosling fan to be honest.

You seem pretty obsessed with his looks. Which roles did he "waste"?

Is it me or does Messiah seem borderline racist towards Foxx? A goomba, really?
