Spike Lee Confirms Jamie Foxx And Eddie Murphy Are Definitely Not In The Running For James Brown Casting... But Who Is?

The Hollywood Reporter have dropped a tiny crumb of info about Spike Lee's forthcoming James Brown biopic. Confronting the director at an AFI lunch last Friday, they managed to squeeze the comment from him that neither Jamie Foxx nor Eddie Murphy were under consideration for the title role. Of course, there was no comment on who would be considered...

Now we've crossed Foxx and Murphy off of the list, who is left? Sam Jackson? Now surely The Hollywood Reporter would have asked about him too? And they've simply been asked to keep schtum? Maybe I'm living in an All The President's Men fuelled fantasy here, but if you ask me, we may have our man.
