Jamie Foxx Explains 'Max Dillon' Look & Teases 'Electro' Voice In THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2
Appearing on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Jamie Foxx offers commentary to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 set pics, sharing how his nerdy Max Dillon look came about & how his Electro voice sounds!
"I play Max Dillon, and this is me before I turn into the villain. My [real] sister is my hair stylist and she created the Django look, Ray Charles and things like that. So, I told her that, when I'm the nerd guy, I want to be the first black man with a comb over. I told her make me look like I would look if I never made it. I had a jheri curl and things didn't go right, so I Jimmy Mack it."
"What’s funny though is doing the voice," Foxx says about playing Max Dillon's villainous alter-ego, Electro. "And the voice is like [growling], 'Yes, a world without mercy, a world without power.' But what’s funny is when I forget my line and I have to go back to my regular voice."
In “The Amazing Spider-Man™ 2,” for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past. The film is directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay by Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci & Jeff Pinkner, with a previous draft by James Vanderbilt, and based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are the producers. The latest chapter in the Spider-Man story is set for release in 3D on May 2, 2014.
