Jamie Foxx is set to release his latest film, Sleepless, in which he plays a Las Vegas police officer by the name of Vincent Downs. The movie gets turnt up when Downs and his partner (played by T.I.) get caught in a high-stakes web of corrupt cops, internal affairs, and murderous gangsters. After a robbery gone wrong, Downs’ son gets kidnapped and he goes on a mission to get him back.
The movie will have you yelling at the screen, so if you plan on watching, get those jokes ready. I was out in Beverly Hills and caught up with Jamie Foxx and costar Michelle Monaghan for a fun chit-chat. Since the flick has a few fight scenes in a club, I asked Jamie about a fight that happened, allegedly between Lil Wayne’s crew and another crew, when he was in Liv. Jamie went in, calling the fighters “Thoughtful Thugs.”
