Is there anyone out there who can get enough of the news about the upcoming adaptation of Annie, formerly possibly-starring Willow Smith, currently starring Quvenzhane Wallis? Yes? There are a (small) few of you who couldn’t care less, especially considering that names like Justin Timberlake were being thrown around for the role of Daddy Warbucks, not that you don’t like Justin Timberlake, you think he’s fine even if his latest album stunk and he definitely considers himself way more of a comedic actor than he should, it’s just not something you’d be interested in? Uhhhhhh, WELL WHAT ABOUT JAMIE FOXX, THEN? IF HE WERE IN THAT ROLE?! ARE YOU INTERESTED NOW?! From The Hollywood Reporter:
Jamie Foxx is in negotiations to star opposite Quvenzhane Wallis in Annie, the update of the classic comic strip-turned-musical that Sony is making with producers Will Smith and Jay-Z.
Foxx would play a character named Benjamin Stacks, a variation of the Daddy Warbucks personage, who takes in the spunky orphan girl being played by Wallis. (You know he’s rich because his name literally means stacks of $100 bills, aka Benjamins.) The Django Unchained star has received an offer from the studio and sources say his team has begun to negotiate.
#BENJAMINSTACKS! To be honest for one second: I think Jamie Foxx would be more than fine for the role of Benjamin Stacks. To be dishonest for the rest of the post: BUT CAN WE COME UP WITH BETTER NAMES THAN BENJAMIN STACKS FOR THE NEW DADDY WARBUCKS? LET’S TRY!
