Jamie Foxx nominated for President of the United States
EXCLUSIVE: Jamie Foxx may be moving into the White House, as director Roland Emmerich is eyeing the DJANGO UNCHAINED star to play the President of the United States alongside Channing Tatum in Sony’s action drama WHITE HOUSE DOWN. Sources tell Variety's Jeff Sneider and Justin Kroll that Foxx is intrigued by the presidential role and his reps have engaged the filmmaker. Official negotiations haven’t begun as Foxx has yet to receive an actual offer, but both sides will continue to pursue the deal. Tatum will star as a Secret Service agent who leaps into action to defend the President when a paramilitary group takes over the White House and holds everyone inside hostage.
