ESPN Employs Jamie Foxx For Monday Night Intro

Thursday, September 27, 2007


In ESPN's latest effort to colloborate with every movie that ever comes out will be before next week's Monday Nighter. The movie this time......Kingdom. Jamie Foxx is set to appear in the opening spot playing his character from the movie who is an FBI Agent....

In the dramatic 65-second intro, Foxx, waving a flashlight over some files, hits upon his confirmed targets: “Tom Brady [stats] - three Super Bowls, three Pro Bowls, one supermodel. Primary target - Randy Moss, fresh corn rows.”

As for Cincinnati, Foxx finds a photo of “Carson Palmer - Heisman Trophy winner, Pro Bowl MVP, cleft chin. What does that mean? Chad Johnson - you don’t want him dancing on you in the end zone.”

Jamie, channeling his on-screen G-Man, wraps up saying, “We got all we need. There’s going to be a shoot-out in The Jungle tonight.”
Hot damn! The Disnergy just can't be stopped. I can't wait for the week after when Dallas travels to Buffalo and Larry The Cable Guy figures out why they call them buffalo wings if they're actually chicken. Good times.

Our current list sits at: Die Hard 4, 3:10 to Yuma, The Game Plan and now Kingdom

Secret agent man (Boston Herald)

Update.....found a photo from the spot that I thought I'd share. Isn't JFoxx dreamy? I love a man in uniform.

I must be living in Bizarro world where untalented people get to do things to fawk up my TV screen.

Don't give me the Jamie Foxx did Ray crap. He did a Three hr Ray Charles impersonation and got an Oscar. He is absolutley horrible in serious roles.

Didn't he do the remake of Miami Vice? For that colossal bomb he should have to do some kinda penance. Something like he doesn't get to appear in any form of media for 2 years.

I just saw that WSR! We're you really just kidding?!?!

I honestly had no idea. But he was one of the "celebrities" that they ignored football to slobber over last year.

Kudos to you then. If I had a prize you'd win it. That's hilarious.

semi-foul ball here: a segment on sunday night football in america last week was sponsored by "the kingdom" (which is a Universal picture, thus linked to NBC), and as such, Costas and Collinsworth shilled it pretty hard (though Costas sounded like he had a bad taste in his mouth while doing it)

Whatever happened to just broadcasting the game without all the bells and whistles? Bah... get off my damn lawn you whippersnappers!

Tony Korn is running, no, SPRINTING down to the local Duane Reade's to pick up some kneepads and KY.

Nothing Korny likes more than star fucking.

What does Dan Dierdorf have to say about that.

Of course we're talking about Dan Dierdorf, who usually feels compelled to talk about how great the CBS sitcom the play-by-play guy just shilled. Or feels compelled to tie in the name of the show to how one of the teams of playing.

PBP: "Rules of Engagement, Mondays at 9 on CBS."
DAN: "And it's obvious that the Dolphins' defensive backs haven't learned the 'Rules of Engagement.'"

Hahahaha. That's a dead on impression right there Anon. Although I don't think you can type impressions.

AA, I hope somebody doesn't punish me because I made an ESPN-bashing post about CBS.

20 bucks says Willie Beamen is mentioned if they have an in-game chat with Jamie, and I'll go double or nothing it comes out of TK's mouth

As long as Tom Cruise isn't at the same game, I consider myself lucky.

How sad is that? I'm rationalizing that Jamie Foxx on MNF is okay!

If they're in Cincinnati, the only "celebrity" I want to see interviewed in the booth is Dr. Johnny Fever.

While WKRP in Cincy was an awesome show I think Howard Hesseman was much better in Head Of The Class.

you left off "I now pronounce you chuck and larry," they were all over who's now

I'm thinking that it's actually Korny that should be there for a quarter, and Foxx the one who is there the whole game.

I'm struggling to think of why Tony Korny is there.

I don't get the vibe that he even likes the game.

My father was a DJ for 15 years, so I got to hang around the stations where he worked. I can tell you from personal experience that WKRP was a whole lot closer to reality than most people realized.

A lot of people did drugs in the 70's. If you listened to radio then, you'd have to agree.

You don't think they put the first side of 2112 on in the middle of the afternoon for nothing, did ya?

Nothing was worse than the "We Are Marshall" hype hit the college broadcasts, and Matthew McConaughey started acting like he was a football expert.

Dude, you played a coach IN A MOVIE. You played a handicapper and ex-quarterback IN A MOVIE. And you were on the SIDELINES for the Rose Bowl--you didn't play in it.
