Foxx Gives Gong The Ok

OSCAR-winner JAMIE FOXX has given his approval for Chinese actress LI GONG to be cast in the remake of classic 1980s TV show MIAMI VICE.

Following his Best Actor win for RAY at last month's (FEB05) ACADEMY AWARDS, Foxx's new status has earned him the right to decide who stars alongside him - and he is more than happy to have Gong aboard.

Director MICHAEL MANN, who also created the original cop series, first ear-marked Gong for a role when he saw advance footage of the 39-year-old acting in upcoming movie MEMOIRS OF A GEISHA.
