Actor, comedian, singer, Oscar-winner and Terrell, Texas native Jamie Foxx enjoyed a round of Dallas sports during the Thanksgiving break.

After spending Thanksgiving afternoon at the Dallas Cowboys’ game, Foxx made his way to American Airlines Center Saturday night to watch the Dallas Mavericks take on the Washington Wizards.

Foxx, born and raised in Terrell, joked with players pre-game, shot baskets, took pictures with fans and entertained all in attendance. The 53-year-old actor remains a popular figure wherever he goes, especially in his adopted hometown of Dallas. His next film is Spiderman: No Way Home, which opens on Dec. 16th.  Foxx previously starred as supervillain Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 with Andrew Garfield. He will reprise the role in No Way Home.
