Foxx would play Benjamin Stacks, an updated take on the Warbucks character whose name literally means money. (In case you're not a Puff Daddy fan: "Benjamin" is slang for $100 bills.) Foxx certainly has the musical chops to carry the role: he won an Oscar and Golden Globe for portraying legendary musician Ray Charles in "Ray," starred in "Dreamgirls," and released several successful R&B albums, for which he also won a Grammy.
Plus, Foxx should have no trouble embodying the chrome-domed character after sporting the bald look for his upcoming role as Electro in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2." His charismatic personality should also lend itself well to Warbucks/Stacks, since the millionaire forms a close relationship with the spunky Annie.
The movie, produced by Will Smith and Jay-Z and helmed by "Easy A" director Will Gluck, is set to begin production later this year, with an eye on a 2014 release. Bet your bottom dollar it'll be fun.
