Jamie Foxx was born Eric Marlon Bishop on December 13, 1967 in Terrell Texas. Mr. Foxx started out with the television program "In Living Color" in 1991.

Thanks for your reviews, I changed the picture per your request. I corrected all punctuation errors. What is wrong with you people! This is CORRECT. The answer is NOT listed more than once, Eric McCormick is a different name and person. I will change the picture for the 3RD TIME! Go to any site and look up Jamie Foxx and this information will be there. How long of an explanation do you need? This is a question, not a book! I have explained the correct answer to this question, what else is there to know? Do your own search if you want to learn more about Jamie Foxx. I think that we need to have an intelligence test for some of these reviewers!

I do thank the one reviewer who actually did state a good suggestion about the picture being a woman and the question is about a man. There is at least one good person reviewing these questions. Because some of you are terrible at spelling, stop reviewing questions until you know what you are talking about. WHAT SPELLING ERRORS! Be specific, do not just click on a button.

This is supposed to be a fun trivia contest and not an English exam!
