When Simon Cowell says "Ta Ta" to "Idol" at the end of this season, creator Simon Fuller will have to find a replacement -- Jamie Foxx, perhaps?
An "Idol" insider told Life & Style that actor/singer Jamie Foxx and Interscope Records co-founder Jimmy Iovine are both strong contenders for the judging job. Many names have been mentioned as replacements -- everyone from La Toya Jackson to Madonna.
Cowell is leaving "Idol" to bring his British smash hit show "The X Factor" to the US... but has yet to announce who will be judging.
Jamie Foxx has "New Moon" fever.
Foxx, 41, chased down teen king Taylor Lautner, 17, for an autograph and a photo at the "Twilight" premiere one year ago.
"There's tons of fans and we hear all of these high-pitched voices and we hear 'Rah, rah, Taylor, Taylor!'" Lautner reveals to George Lopez on the Thursday airing of ""Lopez Tonight," as reported by People magazine.
Taylor was used to the attention he got from female fans, but was floored when he discovered that the Oscar winner wanted his attention.
"All of a sudden I hear this deep voice behind me: 'Taylor, Taylor!'... And this guy walks up to me and he goes 'Hey...my daughter is a huge fan, and I'm a huge fan is there any way I can get a picture with you. I'm Jamie Foxx.'"
The star-struck Lautner couldn't believe Jamie wanted his autograph. "I was like, 'Are you kidding me? Can I get a picture with you?'"
"Lopez Tonight" airs on TBS.
A photo of Jamie Foxx in the buff was recently leaked to the web, and the "Law Abiding Citizen" star sat down with the "Tonight Show's" Conan O'Brien to talk about the buck-naked shot!
Foxx, 41, confirmed the pic is him and said it was taken when he was filming the 2006 crime drama "Miami Vice." The actor was working out to get ready for a nude scene. "My makeup artist wanted to see the before and after," Foxx explained.
Later in the interview, O'Brien mentioned Kirstie Alley had tweeted about a booty call with Foxx. Alley dished on Twitter, "I don't need to see Mr. Foxx's naked picture, I see him naked three times a week... standing over me... ooo be still my dirty talk."
The actor/singer told Conan, "I used to have a crush on Kirstie Alley back in the day" and added he likes his "women thick."
"Law Abiding Citizen" star Jamie Foxx tells "Extra" he hasn't always followed the law. The actor says he was once thrown in jail because of seafood!
"I broke the law in Atlanta years ago, but I didn't know I was breaking the law," he explains.
"I'm sitting there and this girl brought me some food in the club and it was a shrimp dinner. One of the shrimp fell off, and I'm spending like eight bucks on this shrimp, so I was like, 'I ain't got that kind of money!"
"I was a little upset. I said something under my breath like, 'Damn you,' but the security guard overheard me." Foxx was then confronted by the security guard and he admits they "had to fight."
At the end of the night, Foxx found himself behind bars. "I ended up going to jail," he laughed.
The 41-year-old is on the other side of the judicial system as a District Attorney in the thriller "Law Abiding Citizen" -- in theaters Oct. 16.
Here's a look we like! Gerard Butler tells "Extra" he didn't mind completely stripping down in the new thriller "Law Abiding Citizen"!
"It's always nice to show a bit of butt," the handsome actor joked with "Extra's" Jerry Penacoli at the Hollywood premiere of the film on Tuesday. When Butler's character is arrested in the flick, he welcomes the cops... with no clothes on.
He adds, "I don't think it was gratuitous. I think there is a good reason for my nakedness in this movie." If you have been missing Gerard's abs from "300," don't worry. They also make an appearance in "Law Abiding Citizen."
Gerard's co-star Jamie Foxx praises Butler's "butt-scene," saying, "He has to do his whole thing for the ladies, which is great. But that's when we men go to the concession stand."
Jamie Foxx's "Blame It" has become a summer anthem for partygoers everywhere, but parents have been critical about the not-so-kid-friendly lyrics. Now Foxx has a new track that's perfect for the youngsters -- check it out!
