The former WMA client left the agency at the height of pre-Bond casting buzz, and it was a gamble that worked: he got the part, and managed to go agentless (and thus avoid a punishing commission) whilst negotiating the 007 deal.

Now that his pet political cause has reached its logical conclusion, the ubiquitous Jamie Foxx has signed on to star in Paramount's Blood on the Leaves. Based on the novel by Jeff Stetson, Leaves tracks a district attorney (that would by J.F.) as he prosecutes a black professor accused of killing a group of white men in retaliation for hate crimes. Shooting will begin after Foxx finishes shilling his new R & B record, which drops on Tuesday.
