Jamie Foxx Joins Horrible Bosses
And you'll love his character name

13 May 2010  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  |  Source: Just Jared

Yesterday, as you may remember unless you're Guy Pearce / Drew Barrymore, we reported that Jason Bateman had signed up for Horrible Bosses, and the day before that Colin Farrell had joined the cast. Well, today Jamie Foxx has signed up to join them, playing a character currently called Motherfucker Jones.

Apparently that's a change of name from his original moniker, which was even less family friendly, but the studio told The Hollwood Reporter that it might change again (Say it ain't so!). He'll be playing a scam artist who offers advice to three put-upon office workers (Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and one other) who plan to murder each other's bosses (Colin Farrell, Jennifer Aniston and one other).

The King Of Kong's Seth Gordon is directing, from a script by Michael Markowitz, with the most recent draft by Jonathan Goldstein and Francis John Daley. Let's hope the casting keeps looking this good...

Brilliant name!
I think this will be a good film. Even though (and I'm sure other poeple have already pointed out) it does seem like Office Space with murder taking the place of "the exact plot of superman III"... More
