3. Max – Collateral
In a job that earned Jamie Foxx an Academy Award nomination, Jamie Foxx performs Max, an L.A. taxi driver who simply so occurs to select up the mistaken passenger in Tom Cruise’s character, Vincent, the hitman. Max is the quintessential can-you-just-leave-me-alone, character who’s within the mistaken place on the mistaken time. But he steps up as a result of he has to, and it’s surprisingly plausible all through. His character arc is big, and it occurs proper earlier than your eyes with out you even realizing it’s taking place. Again, that’s that Jamie Foxx magic.
Jamie Foxx can play robust folks, no drawback, however the truth that he may play meek common Joe’s with aplomb is fairly mind-blowing. Again, what vary! And that is the perfect of these roles, by far.
