Jamie Foxx on 'Good Morning America'Sure, Jamie Foxx is just playing an animated canary named Nico in the film 'Rio,' but that doesn't mean he doesn't take his preparations seriously. On 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC), Foxx joked about the rigorous studying he did for the role, from acting like a bird to studying the geography of Rio firsthand.

"I actually slept in a nest the whole time I was filming this because, you know, I'm method," he said. He also revealed that he considers Nico, a yellow canary, to be "light-skinned."

Foxx then pretended to get mad at the idea that he went to Rio to study anything but geography, even if there happened to be beautiful women around, and swore he'd bust a window if anyone suggested otherwise. What's a comedian supposed to do, go on 'Good Morning America' and not make a Chris Brown joke?
