    Jamie Foxx to play Bob Marley

    Don't know if this was posted b4 but.........

    JAMIE FOXX is set to play BOB MARLEY in a new biopic focusing on the reggae icon's early life.

    Film-maker RACHID BOUCHAREB is set to direct the project which is the brainchild of the ONE LOVE star's widow RITA.

    Bouchareb says, "I've always liked the story of what made Marley the man.

    "I want to look at him as a child through to a young man, and how he became interested in Africa." (DJ/WNBTE/SC)

    I think Jamie is very talented, but I don't think this is going to fly at all.

    He suited the role for Ray becuase of his history mannerisms and talents.

    Bob Marley --- I don't think so. Gonna be horrible to any real West Indian person.

    He needs to rethink that, I think its will be an anticlimax to a great last couple years.

    Yeah but the role calls for someone who can act and sing. I don't think Jamie will be able to pull it off completely but he can sure give it a good run for the money. Look what he did with Ray...he was blind (in a practical way of course), he had the accent and he sang his heart out.

    True you just can't compare the type of singing in Ray to reggae but who knows...he might be able to do it.

    I don't think so!

    Nope

    No way.
