Actors Who Starred In Multiple Biopics

- By

Jamie Foxx

Jamie Foxx started out as a comedian before landing his own sitcom so when the Texas native was tapped to play Ray Charles many thought the funny many wouldn’t be able to pull it off. His portrayal of the “America The Beautiful” singer was so spot on, Foxx won an Academy award. That same year Foxx played real life incarcerated gangster Stanley “Tookie” Williams in the television biopic about his life. Several years later, Foxx once again played a real-life person. In “The Soloist,” Foxx was Nathaniel Ayers, a talented violinist who developed schizophrenia and became homeless.
