Way back in 1997, i.e. the year of the disastrous Batman & Robin, Jamie Foxx portrayed Bunz in the plastic wrap-assisted comedy Booty Call. Now, 11 years later, he's pointing to the Bunz aesthetic as the inspiration behind Michael B. Jordan's Black Panther looks.

On Monday's Tonight Show, host Jimmy Fallon praised Foxx's recent BET Awards hosting stint, noting that Black Panther took home the top prize. "Yeah, I like to say African American Panther," Foxx joked. "You know, that's just me. That's me protecting the brand. Let's just stay politically correct."

Fallon then got Foxx to elaborate on the Booty Call connection. "Michael B. Jordan, I been knowing this kid for a long time and we're about to work together and everything, but I had a bone to pick because my style was jacked," he said. "He jacked my style, and I just want photo cred...I just want my cred. Just a little respect, man. That's Booty Call!"

Foxx and Jordan are (nearly) set to star in Warner Bros.' Just Mercy, described by Variety as a "courtroom drama" from Short Term 12 director Destin Cretton.

Foxx was on Fallon with Taron Egerton to promote Robin Hood, which dropped a trailer Tuesday:

Also up next for Foxx is the long overdue proper film adaptation of Spawn. Unlike that largely ill-advised 1997 version, this take will be helmed by creator Todd McFarlane and promises a hard R approach to the hellishly enthralling story.
