Actor and singer Jamie Foxx has displayed his impressive Biblical knowledge during a recent video call with fellow actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Fox, who is known for his portrayal of Ray Charles in 'Ray', along with a starring role in 'Django Unchained'. Foxx talked candidly about his faith in Jesus, reeling off the books of the Old Testament.

"Actually I'm baptist, and I've been baptist my whole life. To me, Jesus is the foundation." 

Foxx said that he had "nothing against other vegans", joking that he "doesn't know where they go as far heaven and hell is concerned".
