    Default Jamie Foxx 'in the running' to play Frank Sinatra



    A biopic based on the life of Frank Sinatra is on its way to the silver screen, but even the guy who "did it his way" couldn't have imagined the cast of characters being lined up to possibly play him.

    While early reports had entertainers like Justin Timberlake, Harry Connick Jr., and Leo DiCaprio tapped to tackle the part of Sinatra, some Hollywood insiders now believe Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx would do an excellent job of portraying the Rat Packer.

    Are we being punk'd?

    You read right, ladies and gents. According to The Daily Express, the African-American singer, songwriter, and actor - who won an Academy Award for his big screen portrayal of music legend Ray Charles in the 2004 biopic Ray - is now being seriously considered as the possible lead in the life story of the Italian-American crooner.

    Industry insiders believe Foxx was "born to play Sinatra."

    "Cool is color-blind. Jamie would seem to be born to the role." The source went on: "Magnificent singing voice, totally convincing acting ability, like Frank himself, born the wrong side of the tracks, rags to riches, makes it big against the odds, has his brushes with authority. The guy's a gift."

    Jamie as Sinatra? That has to be a joke.

    Bullshit, give the damn role to Justin Timberlake...
    Why would they give a role to a black man...it's about an actual person!

    I hope whoever does this wear blue contacts. It just wouldn't be the same without the blue eyes.

    lol And some people thought Leo was a bad choice to play Frank.

    Jamie Foxx is a douche bag and has no business playing Sinatra. I would think they would at least get a white actor to portray a white man.

    I think Harry Connick Jr. would do a great job. I have always liked him for some reason.

    Agreed. When he first jumped on the music scene, the Frank comparisons were everywhere. Of course, that was a while ago. Connick would have to lose some serious weight, too.

    if they are considering jamie foxx, I hope they'll at least consider Miley Cyrus... but hopefully, beonstage won't find out about this and put herself in the running too.

    Beyonce would be wonderful! I'm thinking she has the talent to play every member of the rat pack in one movie.

    They ought to give this to Timberlake or Connick - someone who can actually sing and could reasonably pass for Sinatra physically.
