Jamie Foxx is set to play Frank Sinatra in a new biopic. The Oscar-winning star – who played jazz musician Ray Charles in ‘Ray’ – is being lined up to portray the legendary Rat Pack singer in a film by Martin Scorsese after film bosses saw similarities between the two stars’
backgrounds.

A source said: “Cool is colour-blind. Jamie would seem to be born to the role. Jamie has a magnificent singing voice, totally convincing acting ability, like Frank himself, born the wrong side of the tracks, rags to riches, makes it big against the odds, has his brushes with authority. The guy’s a gift.” George Clooney, Justin Timberlake, Harry Connick Jr. and Leonardo DiCaprio are also believed to be in the running for the role, but it is expected to go to 41-year-old Jamie, who was adopted by his strict Baptist grandparents and raised in a racially-segregated area of Texas

staggering $10 million since last February. The ‘Womanizer’ singer, who has a reported $100 million fortune, earned $12 million last year but the majority of her money was used on staff, legal fees, her lavish lifestyle and caring for her two young sons. Her finances were revealed in papers filed by lawyers for her father Jamie, who is legally in control of her estate.

One of her main expenses was the $625,000 she paid in her ongoing custody battle with ex-husband Kevin Federline.
She also spent $447,633 on security, $138,369 in credit card payments, $105,000 renting a Malibu home, $178,818 for childcare, $188,556 on assistants and employees, $285,594 on mortgage payments, $137,554 on living expenses, and $1.06 million in “miscellaneous business expenses”.
