What do you talk to Jamie Foxx about when you've only got four minutes and change on the phone? 'Rio' for one. The Oscar winner voices a parrot named Nico in the animated film (out Friday) and he admits he "wasn't that good at first" before being told to take it down a notch. We also squeezed in some chatter on his recent efforts at the White House to improve President Obama's dance moves.

"He's mixed," Foxx notes. "I'm not saying that all white people can't [dance], but in a sense it's not really your strong suit. So we're going to work it out, we're going to get him down the soul train line."
