Jamie Foxx reveals Electro's voice on 'Tonight Show' -- VIDEO

Posted on

Jamie Foxx may be one of the first Big Superhero Baddies with a Big Bad Comb-over.

While promoting White House Down on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night, Foxx also touched on his role as Max “Electro” Dillon in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and even showed a picture of himself in character as Max Dillon before his evil transformation. The guy is clearly kind of a dweeb. “My sister is my hair stylist and she created the Django look,” Foxx explained. “I told her that, when I’m the nerd guy, I want to be the first black man with a comb-over. I told her, ‘Make me look like I would look if I never made it.'”

After audience laughter, Foxx also discussed the pitfalls of doing an intense character voice — and debuted his Electro voice in the process. Check it out below:

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be in theaters May 2, 2014.
