Jamie Foxx “doing well” but still misses They Cloned Tyrone premiere

While Jamie Foxx didn’t attend the premiere of his new movie, They Cloned Tyrone, collaborators insist he is on the mend.

More than two months after suffering a “medical complication”, friends and collaborators of Jamie Foxx are ensuring fans that the They Called Tyrone actor is in “really good shape”, despite missing the Hollywood premiere.

Speaking with People at the premiere of They Cloned Tyrone, co-star John Boyega said that after numerous attempts to get Jamie Foxx on the horn, “He finally picked up the phone. Thank you, bro…He’s doing well. And then, you know, we just giving him the privacy, and we can’t wait for his return…I gave him the well wishes directly…I gave him all the well wishes. So I’m just gonna be waiting until he comes back out here. So take your time, Jamie. We love you, bro.”

John Boyega – who plays Fontaine in They Cloned Tyrone opposite Foxx’s Slick Charles and Teyonah Parris’ Yo-Yo – wasn’t the only one speaking about Jamie Foxx at the They Cloned Tyrone premiere, as co-producer Datari Turner insisted, “He’s doing amazing. I promise you. Doing really, really good. [Director] Juel [Taylor] talked to him yesterday. John Boyega talked to him yesterday. He’s in really, really good shape and spirits. And he’ll be back on the screen. He’ll be back to work very soon.”

While details on Jamie Foxx’s condition have been kept pretty secret, family members and reps for the actor have found themselves forced to go on the offensive due to rumors, with a spokesperson dismissing unsubstantiated rumors that Foxx was hospitalized after receiving a Covid vaccine.

Other than They Cloned Tyrone, Jamie Foxx has several projects lined up, including Tin Soldier, The Burial (in which he plays lawyer Willie E. Gary) and Back in Action, which Foxx was in the last week of filming when he experienced his complication. They Cloned Tyrone comes to Netflix on July 21st and has the following plot: “A series of eerie events thrusts an unlikely trio onto the trail of a nefarious government conspiracy in this pulpy mystery caper.”
