“White House Down”, directed by Roland Emmerich (Independence Day) chronicles the frightening prospect of America’s house and seat of power being compromised by terrorists. Jamie Foxx (Django Unchained), Channing Tatum (Magic Mike), Maggie Gyllenhaal (Donnie Darko) and James Woods (Nixon) co-star in an action thriller focusing on the White House under siege. Can John Cale (Tatum) protect his daughter and the President (Foxx) while also fighting a ruthless terrorist unit?
Foxx tickled America’s collective funny bone by fleshing out dozens of wacky characters on the landmark TV laugh fest, FOX’s “In Living Color”, and then he snagged Best Actor Oscar gold in 2004 for the dramatic biopic, “Ray”, chronicling the life and times of legendary musician Ray Charles. In Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained”, Foxx plays an American slave who’s freed so he can track down brutal killers and earn freedom for himself and his wife. Foxx has done quite well with his career money. His net worth is an estimated and liberating $85 million dollars.
He’s the go to guy for a lead role requiring action chops, serious masculinity and universal sex appeal. In movies like, “21 Jump Street”, “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra” and “Magic Mike”, Tatum shows just why he can juggle pulse pounding action scenes with comedy and a raw physical magnetism that has fans swooning over him. Tatum’s role of John Cale in “White House Down” sees him balance the traditional action man role with that of a concerned father – caring for his daughter played by Joey King. Channing Tatum has an estimated net worth of $14 million dollars.
She has among the most expressive eyes in Hollywood and that’s a good thing, because sometimes a look is all we need from her to know what her character is all about. Gyllenhaal has displayed a natural ability to slip so effectively into her character, that we forget we’ve seen her before. In movies like, “Secretary”, “40 Days and 40 Nights” and “The Dark Knight”, she’s a presence that enhances the movie and one we’ll never forget. In 2009’s, “Crazy Heart”, opposite Oscar winner Jeff Bridges, she was nominated for Best Actress Supporting Actress. Maggie Gyllenhaal has an estimated net worth of $15 million dollars.
He’s an actor’s actor – one who’s not only obviously talented in the art form, but respects the study and scholarship of the profession. Woods excels at almost any kind of role, but he’s made it almost his stock in trade to flesh out the real bad boys or out and out deadly villains. In movies like “Against All Odds” opposite Jeff Bridges (Starman), “The Getaway”, with Alec Baldwin (The Shadow) and “Stuart Little 2” – where he played an evil falcon, Woods drips a poisonous persona that threatens to overshadow all who get in his scheming way. James Woods has an estimated net worth of $20 million dollars.
