If there's anyone who can pull off a modern-day version of Blade, it's Jamie Foxx.
I know—it's a bold statement to make. But don't forget, this is the same actor who transformed into a terrifying super-powered villain in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, a slave turned bounty hunter in Django Unchained and a charismatic undercover detective in Miami Vice. The Oscar winner has been impressing fans with his dramatic chops for decades, having mastered the art of sneaking some silly humor into the most intense moments. So now, it comes as no surprise that the Ray star is venturing into vampire territory.
Netflix's new vampire comedy, Day Shift, which drops today, stars Foxx as Bud, a California-based pool cleaner who secretly hunts vampires and sells their fangs on the black market. But when he learns that his estranged wife is making plans to move their daughter to a more affordable home in Florida, Bud gets desperate and enlists the help of his good friend, Big John (Snoop Dogg), to help him secure more lucrative vampire hunting jobs.
