The other day I reported that Liam Neeson was cast to play Abraham Lincoln but get this...
Jamie Foxx has been cast to play Bob Marley.
Foxx has an academy award for Ray, but can he change his image and be reggae-politico Bob Marley??
The film is being directed by the Algerian director Rachid Bouchareb (who recently get some attention at Cannes for his film Indigènes, which I believe is also called "Days of Glory")
Can Foxx pull of Marley??? (Especially, can he pull off Marley as well as he pulled off Ray Charles?)
The film is apparently supposed to be about Marley's life as a child through his young adulthood.
As a side note, reading about Marley I've discovered that Marley had 12 children, 4 with his wife Rita...for some reason's this reminds me of Jacob's 12 children which became the 12 tribes of Israel...maybe these children will be the 12 tribes of Jamaica, whose offspring it will be responsible to spread the Rastafari message. I have heard some of the music of Ziggy Marley.
