Jones previously starred alongside Jamie Foxx in The Burial, and the former couldn't help but gush about his costar.

“I had a lot of fun working with Jamie,” Jones said. “He’s fun to be around, and every work day was highly energized. We did a lot of laughing and some pretty good work got done, too.”

Fortunately, the feeling was mutual, as Foxx stated: “When the artistic stars line up and certain people step into a role, it usually turns out really, really good. He’s so special for the part.”

“It feels good to be here. I cherish every single minute now. It's different. It's different," he added.
