Gerard Butler Duets with Jamie Foxx

posted by Carrie Rickey @ 2:09 PM

excerpt:

Both Foxx, a classically-trained pianist and now chart-topping R

& B artist, and Butler, who moonlighted in a rock band after

earning his law degree, are musically-minded. Foxx won an Oscar for his

turn as Ray Charles in the 2004 film -- the same year Butler put on a

mask and sang the title role in the film "Phantom of the Opera." Can

you think of a musical that they could make together? Butler told me

that he'd love to play Harold Hill in "The Music Man" -- a charismatic

con man I can also see Foxx as.

And if you can't think of a musical that would fit both these very

different stars, then name your favorite Foxx and Butler movies. For

me, Foxx's roles as Bundini Brown in "Ali" and as the cabbie

unintimidated by Tom Cruise's hitman in "Collateral" (both from

director Michael Mann) are his richest. And Butler's King Leonidas in

"300" and his double role in "Nim's Island" has galvanizing

physicality. Youthinks?

How about Gerry as "Toddy" in a remake of Victor/Victoria! But I'm praying that if the new POTO sequel goes to film, that's his next "musical"!

I can't wait to see Jamie in the "The Soloist"!

Thanks, Barb!

I can definitely see Gerry as Sky Masterson in Guys and Dolls! I'm happy to hear that he's not adverse to doing another musical on film.

I so agree! When I read Alan had said that, I have been thinking about how cool that would be. But I'll take him as Harold Hill. In a white suit strutting around? Ah, you know they would update it ... anyway, I am also glad that Gerry's open to singing in a movie again. That would be wonderful!!!

I was really glad to hear that too, Lisa. I was afraid he might be "off" musicals.

I agree with you about "The Soloist" I'm looking forward to Foxx and Robert Downey Jr.Talk about a comeback.I'm excoted for them both..I'm not to too familiar with musicals so I can't really say what would be a good role for Gerard,musically speaking.

Well if Gerry and Jamie were to do a musical together I could see Guys and Dolls as a viable choice - Gerry as Sky and Jamie as Nathan Detroit, Kristen Chenoweth as Miss Adelaide and Idina Menzel as Seargent Sarah Brown.

You should be a casting director ....

Gerry would make a great Harold Hill in Music Man. He has the kinetic energy and physicality required for the role, because Harold Hill is a fire cracker of movement. Gerry certainly has the sex appeal and charm... just this side of a bad boy. The role of Harold Hill is usually done by speak/singing his songs, so he does not need a classically trained voice. My only concern would be that the song lyrics are spoken/sung rapid fire... so enunciation and timing are not easy... especially if they Americanized his accent. I'd love to see him do this!

I am just glad to hear that Gerry would like to do other musicals. Which means he still likes to sing after that emotionally and physically exhausting experience as the Phantom. Really, whatever he decided to do, I would love it because I can't get enough of his singing....and I don't want to get enough!
