Cocky A-hole Jamie Foxx and awesome drug-taker Roberty Downey Jr. are all set to appear in The Soloist, "the true-life tale of a homeless violin virtuoso Nathaniel Ayers, a musician who was unable to develop his talent after he began to suffer from schizophrenia."
I love these "hobo with a heart of gold" stories. As if every wino was just a regular guy until he hit a stretch of bad luck, and now he drinks Windex and wears a diaper made of newspapers.
Secondly, a movie about a homeless, schizophrenic musician, and it's NOT Wesley Willis?! All I'm saying is that if you have a chance to greenlight a script called "Suck a Donkey's Smelly Ass", you just go with it. Tracy Morgan could play him.
More Tracy Morgan goodness, after the jump…
