Foxx hasn't only been replaced on the game show. As RadarOnline.com reported, he has been filming in Atlanta for Cameron Diaz's comeback movie Back in Action. Since he still had eight unfinished scenes to film before his medical episode, producers scrambled to bring body doubles in to shoot in his place.

It's unclear if writers were forced to re-write scenes, but Cameron was photographed back on the set and looking stressed while Foxx remained in the hospital.

RadarOnline.com has reached out to Foxx's rep for an update.
