Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx is eyeing a career in politics.

The RAY star, who started his career as a comedian, sees the move as a great opportunity help eradicate a long list of ills.

He says, "That's always in the back of my mind. I'm a real person, and I'm angry. I'm trying to use this celebrity thing to get people some help. AIDS, poverty, racism, - I want to be one of the hands that helps stop all that. I'll put it on my shoulders. I'll charge it to my account.

"I don't look around to see what others are doing. No, I see me. And I feel in my own heart that I'm not doing enough. I want to do more."
