Who says girls can’t fight? Jamie Foxx learned that lesson the hard way on set filming his new action flick Sleepless alongside Michelle Monaghan.

The duo, who worked together previously in 2010’s Due Date, had to get pretty physical this time around, and Foxx admitted Monaghan actually got the best of him, chipping his tooth, during one fight scene.

“I was on skates for a minute,” joked Foxx. “I had to get my manhood together.”

“I was a little too quick on the draw,” explained Monaghan, who plays a detective tailing Foxx in the film. “I connected with those teeth and I chipped them.”

Thankfully for Foxx, who plays a cop on the hunt for his kidnapped son, one of his best friends happens to be a dentist and fixed his teeth that evening.

“Twelve hours later, the very next day,” added Monaghan, “I was feeling a little cheapish, and I tried to sneak a peek at his mug and, basically, they were perfect.”

Sleepless, which also stars T.I. and Gabrielle Union, hits theaters January 13.

5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs

Published

on

If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.

1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.

In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary. 

2. He’s funny. 

Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.

3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.

In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.

4. He’s a rapper. 

His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle. 

5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.  

The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
