Foxx’s condition was serious enough that some of his family flew in from out of town to visit him in the hospital. He was reportedly awake and communicating at the time.
Foxx had been in Atlanta filming his Netflix comedy Back in Action with Cameron Diaz and Glenn Close when he became ill. A stunt double and body double have been seen filling in for him on set.

Filming started today with Nick Cannon as replacement host. His daughter, who served as DJ, will also not be on the show and remains by her father’s side.
Foxx continues to receive support from his peers including Taraji P. Henson. “We are praying for you and your family! #GODIS,” she wrote.
