Jamie Foxx Remains Hospitalized As ‘Beat Shazam’ Finds New Host: Report

Jamie Foxx remains hospitalized after suffering a medical emergency, and now another project is being filmed without him.

“Beat Shazam,” the game show co-hosted by Foxx and his daughter Corinne Foxx, has begun filming its new season but has found another host to replace the Oscar-winning actor, TMZ reported Wednesday.

Corinne will also not appear in the new season, as she remains by her father’s side at the Atlanta hospital where he remains.

Sources close to Jamie also told the outlet that they are asking for prayers for his recovery.

Representatives for the Foxx family and “Beat Shazam” did not immediately respond to Page Six’s requests for comment.

Jamie, 55, has been hospitalized since mid-April when he suffered what Corinne, 29, called a “medical complication” while filming “Back in Action” with Cameron Diaz.

However, the scare did not occur on the set of the film.

The project temporarily halted filming but resumed days later with a body double for Jamie as reports surfaced that he was “steadily improving”.

Lawrence, 58, shared his well wishes, calling Foxx “one of the best we have in Hollywood.”

He added: “Not just one of the best artists, but a good person. … My prayers go out to him every night and I only wish the best for him.”
