Is Jamie Foxx set to play Martin Luther King Junior in an upcoming Oliver Stone bio-pic? That's the word according to Deadline, which says that DreamWorks has bought the rights to Dr. King's story from his family and is ready to start filming soon. 

Foxx and Stone worked together on Any Given Sunday. Foxx has already won a Best Actor Oscar for his work in the bio-pic Ray, about the late, great Ray Charles.

MY 2 CENTS:

  • Jamie Foxx would do a good job as Martin Luther King. 
  • Tyrese has been lobbying for this role for years. He must be hurt.
  • Do you think Oliver Stone is the right director? Or should they let someone else do it?
