On the “Tonight Show,” the “Amazing Spider-Man 2” star recalled — and exaggerated — his encounter with the Fox News host
While appearing on the “Tonight Show” on Friday, Foxx, who was in town to promote “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” was asked about a photo of himself dancing with Pharrell and General Colin Powell. The power trio, it turns out, were united by a charity event thrown by Revlon magnate Ron Pearlman. O'Reilly was also in attendance at the gala, which was held in the Hamptons, but was less enthusiastic about taking Foxx up on his offer of free, premium dance lessons.
“He was like, ‘Get away from me, Jamie Foxx. I don't want any part of that molasses,'” Foxx deadpanned, in his best O'Reilly shame-droll. “I don't want any part of that basketball or whatever it's called. Soon you'll have me eating chicken! You'll have me listening to hip hop! Jamie Foxx is a pinhead. Get away from me!”
Fallon and The Roots loved the bit, but Foxx was quick to note that O'Reilly had never, in fact, worried about dancing being a gateway drug to chicken and hip hop. After all, as Foxx also pointed out, he has a movie — “Rio 2” — currently being distributed by Foxx, so synergy means they're all on the same team.
