Most recently, Foxx has starred in Netflix’s Project Power and Soul, which came out on December 25 and made him Disney Pixar’s first African-American lead.  

Speaking of the accomplishment on The Project last month, he said it feels ‘amazing’ to be part of such a historical moment in movie-making, saying the world needed this ‘good, good news’ following the challenging year that has been 2020. 

‘I don’t think that it’s just good enough to be first African-American, we had to turn it into something fantastic… and I believe that we did it. I’m so happy to be a part of it,’ the actor said of the movie.

As host Lisa Wilkinson asked Jamie if the timing of the movie felt ‘just right’ because of the Black Lives Matter movement this year, he responded: ‘Oh my goodness, yes.

‘We’ve gone through so many challenges, and we give so much to the culture, so much to society, so when we are going through these terrible things, it is beautiful to have a light.

‘It’s beautiful to have something that we can watch, and escape and be entertained and get some smiles from. We are in need of some smileage!’
