Jamie Foxx talks working with Quentin Tarantino on Django Unchained

Sings his director’s praises


Quentin Tarantino doesn’t generally inspire anything other than praise from the actors he works with, and having thoroughly enjoyed himself on the set of Django Unchained , it sounds as though Jamie Foxx is on the same page as so many of his predecessors.

“You can’t look at Pulp Fiction ,” begins Foxx, “and see those performances by Samuel Jackson and John Travolta, and not go, ‘Man, if I could just work with that dude and say those types of words.’ He’s a wordsmith.”

“Quentin was like, ‘Don’t come in here, Jamie Foxx-ing it. Come in here and really be the character.’ I thought that was fantastic for a person to take you back to school and really get to work… You grow when you work with directors like that.”
