NOTES

"Acting the fool" on TV showed him a possible way out of his hometown of Terrell, Texas. "I heard 'nigger this' and 'nigger that' my entire life, so I couldn't wait till I got a chance to get away from there," he says. "People tell me racism is just more subtle in places like Los Angeles and New York. Well, I prefer subtle shit. You ain't got to let me know you don't like me, I already know that."---Jamie Foxx talks about watching Richard Pryor, Flip Wilson and Red Foxx on TV as a child to Newsweek, July 28, 2004.

"He has that thing about him that no matter who is in the room, you feel like he's connecting with you especially. He's always paying attention."---Regina King, Foxx's co-star in "Ray" quoted to People, November 29, 2004.

"Most comedians are brillant men and women," says Regina King. "So I was not suprised by the brilliance, but I was floored by his respect for the craft."---Regina King, Foxx's co-star in "Ray" to Entertainment Weekly, December 31, 2004.
