Jamie Foxx Announces Biggest Role Ever

Big Brothers Big Sisters of America names new national spokesperson

A small group of teen and pre-teen boys and their mentors joined Oscar Award Winning Actor Jamie Foxx at a private party at his Los Angeles-area home to celebrate the actor’s newest and biggest role ever -- national spokesperson for Big Brothers Big Sisters of America.

As national spokesperson, Foxx will represent the organization at national and local Big Brothers Big Sisters events and work with other influencers and celebrities to help raise needed funding so that the organization can grow to serve more children.  He will also promote the organization in Public Service Announcements and special appearances.  More than 34,000 children across the U.S., primarily boys of color, are on Big Brothers Big Sisters “waiting to be matched” lists.  The organization needs more volunteer mentors, particularly men of color, and additional financial support for sufficient staffing to match the kids in safe, long-term mentoring matches that yield the outcomes unique to Big Brothers Big Sisters.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of SW CT is thrilled to have such a wonderful spokesperson representing our agency!

“Long before Hollywood, I had Estelle Marie Talley, my grandmother. My football coaches, choir directors and other positive male role models also help keep me on a straight path.”- Jaime Foxx
