ALTER EGO: First Look At Jamie Foxx's "Nerdy" Side Of His Electro Role In "Amazing Spiderman 2" + Halle Berry's FIRST SHOT As "Storm" In "X-Men: Days Of Future Past"
Jamie Foxx's Amazing Spiderman 2 hair and makeup team is wrong for this. Check out Electro's nerdy alter ego on set for the first time inside, plus Halle Berry back in her sexy black suit for the new X-Men installment...
Look, we get Electro's alter ego is a nerdy electrical engineer and lineman. But did his tacked on thinning hair need to be all waved over looking like they couldn't decide between finger waves and a comb over?
Oh wells. We've got a YBF actor in the major role of a villain this time around, so we'll take what we can get.
Jamie Fox hopped into his alter ego's costume instead of Electro as he hit the NYC set of Amazing Spiderman 2 recently.
In the words of Tamar Braxton, They Tried It with this hair and makeup. But anywho, here's the story behind his character, whose alter's name is Maxwell Dillon for you non comic buffs. According to the ever so informative (when it's correct) Wikipedia:
While he was repairing a power line, a freak lightning accident caused a mutagenic change that transformed him into a living electrical capacitor. His powers were initially weak, so he spent some time stealing electrical equipment from Stark Industries to charge himself. During this time, he was approached by Magneto, who considered him a potential recruit for his Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, claiming that Dillon's power rivaled his own, but Dillon refused. The following day, Dillon was confronted by a small-time thug from whom he had been borrowing money to pay for the machinery he had needed. When the thug drew a gun on him because he had not paid back the money yet, he responded by shooting a blast of lightning through the thug's chest- the first time Dillon ever killed anybody. Soon taking the name Electro, he turned to a life of a professional criminal.
Meanwhile, the first pic has surfaced of Halle Berry gearing up to reprise her role as Storm in the upcoming X-Men: Days Of Future Past flick. Chick never ages and still looks amazing.
They are also still filming, so her baby bump will have to be hidden. The movie's set to take over theaters in 2014.
