For Hollywood entertainers, versatility is key to maintaining a successful career. Actor, singer, and comedian Jamie Foxx is pretty much the personification of the term “triple threat.” The 53-year-old has constantly evolved throughout his career and seems driven to push the limits of what fans expect from him.
Born Eric Marlon Bishop, he started taking piano lessons at five and later earned a scholarship to a music school in San Diego to advance his musical prowess. While in school, Foxx cut his teeth at local comedy clubs and open mikes. He would earn his rise to fame as a hilarious comic known for his impersonations on the 90’s sketch-comedy show In Living Color.
Since then, Foxx has starred in a variety of movies and projects, ranging from biopics to superhero blockbusters.
