LOS ANGELES, CA (KTVI) – Oscar winner Jamie Foxx plays a modern version of Daddy Warbucks in the new movie Annie hitting theatres next week. FOX 2’s Kevin Stein cross interviewed him about the new film and also got him to open up about the protests following the grand jury’s decision in the Michael Brown case.

“We’re going to have uncomfortable conversations. To not destroy the credibility of the good cops; but, we definitely have a situation. Because ,when you see this happen to other African-American men, you can see we have a problem. I know we can figure it out. I really enjoy the peaceful protests. But, you have to understand that when people riot, there will always be people who are looking for opportunities to get something. Lets try not to focus on that. I know it’s tough. Lets stick with the peace and understanding.” said Jamie Foxx.

Foxx says he hopes all sides are open to making real change.

The movie Annie opens December 19th.
