Jamie Foxx Teases His Electro Voice And Explains Max Dillon’s Nerdy Look In The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Jamie Foxx appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno Tuesday to talk about his upcoming movie White House Down. While he was on the show, Leno took the opportunity to ask the actor about his other upcoming role in Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Foxx plays the nerdy Max Dillon who will make the transformation to the villainous Electro pretty early in the film. Foxx shared the origins of the super-nerdy look he crafted for Max and even gave us a quick preview of his Electro voice. He could definitely give Christian Bale a run for his money.
You can check out the full video relating to Electro below so you can hear the voice, but here’s what Foxx had to say about Max Dillon‘s weird jheri curl comb over when presented with a set pic:
I play Max Dillon. This is me before I turn into the villain. My sister is my hair stylist. She created [laughing]…she does a great job…she created the Django look, Ray Charles and things like that. So, I told her that when I’m the nerd guy, I want to be the first black man with a comb over. I told her ‘make me look like I would look if I never made it.’ So that’s me. I’d have a jheri curl, things didn’t go right up in here, and I’d take the curl and Jimmy Mack it.
After explaining his blue Electro look and how the movie magicians will make him glow, he displayed his villain voice and talked about how he switched back and forth on set. He praised co-stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, but he told the audience to really be on the lookout for Dane DeHaan. I’m sure he’s telling us to be on the lookout as DeHaan continues to climb to superstardom as well as his role as Harry Osborn in the movie. What do you think of Foxx’s explanation for the Max Dillon look? Do you like his Electro voice?
