jamie-foxx.jpgVariety is reporting that Jamie Foxx has been re-considered for the role of Curtis Taylor Jr, a thinly veiled version of Berry Gordon, in Bill Condon's Dreamgirls, a thinly veiled version of the Supremes story. Negotiations were dropped last month after Foxx's reps submitted a list of wild wishes, including a $15 million salary plus 15% of the film's gross. They've apparently scaled back their demands considerably, and now it looks like Foxx is a lock to join a cast that will include Beyonce, Usher, and probably Eddie Murphy in a role that David Poland is already waxing predictably Oscar-hyperbolic about. Still to be cast is the role of Effie, the chubby girl who sings all of the musical's best songs, for which the producers plan to search far and wide for an unknown.
