Jamie Foxx, out plugging the upcoming film Jarhead, is also stumping for American Idol 3 champ Fantasia (née Barrino) to fill a key and as-yet-uncast role in the big-screen adaptation of the Broadway musical Dreamgirls. Thus far, besides Foxx, Dreamgirls has recruited Beyoncé Knowles (to play Deena, the Diana Ross part), Tony winner Anika Noni Rose and Eddie Murphy. "If Fantasia does it, it's outta here," Foxx says, referring to the vacant role of Effie, played by Jennifer Holliday on stage. "It's completely in the stratosphere." No pressure though, Fan.
