Adopted by his grandparents when he was a child, he credits his grandmother's strictness and her love for his ability to play piano. He got his start in comedy and landed a part on the TV series "Living Color" in 1991. His audience appeal led to his own sitcom, "The Jamie Foxx Show." In 1999 he was given a movie part in "Any Sunday." He wsa later nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of a taxi driver in "Collateral" (2004), starring Tom Cruise. Later that year he took on the demanding role portraying Ray Charles, a blind musical icon. Foxx played his own piano and sang in the film, while beautifully imitating Charles' every movement and mannerism. On February 27, 2005 he won an Academy Award for Best Actor.
