Jamie Foxx flexed his action hero muscles when saving a man from a burning truck Monday.

The Oscar winner pulled Brett Kyle, of Newbury Park, out of his scorching truck after hitting a drainage pipe and being flipped like a diner pancake multiple times in Hidden Valley, CA. The white Toyota Tacoma laid on its side in flames outside of Jamie Foxx’s mansion.

Hearing the commotion outside his door, Jamie rushed outside before you could yell, “ACTION.” The “Annie” star pulled Kyle out of the truck before it fully went up in flames. Saving the reportedly tipsy driver from being burned alive.

Yesterday, Foxx talked to CBS Los Angeles outside his home to recap the encounter.

I don’t look at it as heroic. I just look at it, as, you know, you just had to do something. And it all worked out.

Grateful that it did, Kyle’s father visited Jamie yesterday and thanked him for his bravery.


Jamie posted a photo of the two in a warm embrace on Instagram. The caption reads,

Met the father of the young man from last night today. This is all that matters. That a man, a son, a brother’s life was spared last night…no heroes…Just happy fathers.

Ice Cube must be one of them. First his son, O’Shea Jackson plays him to a T in “Straight Outta Compton,” which deserved an Oscar nom-just sayin (cough*Oscarssowhite*cough)–along with the screenwriters.

Now Ice Cube Jr. is giving back to the city of angels by taking part in L.A.’s 11th annual MLK Day of Service. Not only did he help spiff up the Woodcrest Elementary school campus in South Los Angeles on Monday, but inspired the 1300 volunteers to tap into their hidden potential. Check the video below.

Keep on inspiring us, guys.
