Foxx's 'Soloist' Struggles


Jamie Foxx tells "Extra" playing a schizophrenic homeless musician in his new film "The Soloist" was mentally exhausting. The Oscar winner tells "Extra's" Mario Lopez, "When I had to go meet the psychiatrist... I was like 'Has anyone flipped out trying to play someone flipped out?' And he was like, 'You know, the mind is a very interesting thing.' And I'm like, 'Man, you're giving me the creeps!'"

Foxx is also making his mark on the airwaves with his new single "Blame It." The 41-year-old offered Lopez a role in an upcoming music video! Jamie said," You've gotta be in one of the videos with me." Foxx's "Blame IT" video features an all-star cast including Forest Whitaker, Samuel L. Jackson, Ron Howard, Quincy Jones and Jake Gyllenhaal. The single is currently number 5 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Foxx released his third album "Intuition" last December. "The Soloist" has an engagement in theaters April 24.
