During Jamie Foxx’s 2008 comedy special, “I Might Need Security,” the “In Living Color” star offered audience members some insight into what occurred. “He thought we were really playing football … he thought we were really on a team.” Foxx said, while in the middle of a scripted argument scene, LL decided to go off-script and hit the movie star. “He knocked me into another movie,” he joked.
Dennis Quaid also chimed in on what he remembered during an interview in April 2020 while on “The Ak & Barak Show,” and joked that the two should have a “rematch,” according to DAZN. “I know it was about ego. I don’t take sides on anything.”
In December 2020, actor Bill Bellamy — who played Jimmy Sanderson — took to Instagram Live to recount his memory of the encounter and alleged that Foxx actually got “knocked out” by LL on set. He claimed it all started with the musician repeatedly cracking jokes on the “Rock the Bells” rapper. Bellamy advised Foxx to stop because it appeared LL didn’t find them funny. Shortly thereafter, they got on the field for their scene and it all turned left. “As I’m about to say my line, BOOM, LL Cool J hits Jamie Foxx in the head, like on the helmet though.” Bellamy added the impact was heard throughout the set. “Jamie forgot his line, he knocked his line out his head.”
