Jamie Foxx has signed on to join the cast of the road-trip movie "Due Date," Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures' latest Todd Phillips comedy.

Foxx joins Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis. Film is about a high-strung father-to-be (Downey) who is forced to hitch a ride with a college slacker (Galifianakis) to make it to the birth on time.

Foxx will play Downey's longtime pal, who once dated his wife (Michelle Monaghan) and secretly keeps in touch with her.

"Date" begins shooting this fall in Atlanta, New Mexico and Los Angeles.

Foxx is repped by CAA and King Management. He will next be seen opposite of Gerard Butler in "Law Abiding Citizen" and recently wrapped "Valentine's Day."
