Jamie Foxx Hangs with Tom Brady, Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez and Deion Sanders

Jamie Foxx continues to get back into the swing of things in his career following his health scare last year — and he’s getting to meet a few sports G.O.A.T.s in the process.

As the host of FOX’s popular game show Beat Shazam, Foxx led FOX’s Upfronts on May 13, where he previewed new seasons of The Masked Singer and Animal Control and highlighted the upcoming MLB Negro League tribute game for FOX Sports, according to Variety.

Posting on Instagram, Foxx, 56, shared photos of backstage action with some of sports’ greatest stars, Tom Brady, Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Rob Gronkowski and Deion Sanders.

“Goat herd blessed company,” he captioned the post, referencing the “Greatest of All Time” acronym. “Big fun on stage in the apple. Being upfront at the upfronts.”

Foxx was hospitalized in April 2023 due to a “medical complication,” his family said at the time. On May 12, his daughter Corinne shared that he was now out of the hospital and doing well, and the rest of the summer brought more updates from family, friends and Foxx himself as he improved.

A source told PEOPLE last month that Foxx is is “doing incredibly well” as he looks forward to his return to Beat Shazam and several new projects.

“He is so busy, and back to doing what he loves,” the source says of Foxx, who will be returning to host the FOX game show with his daughter Corinne Foxx, 30, for its upcoming season.

“Jamie didn’t skip a beat on Beat Shazam,” the source says. “He was literally right back to his old self. Really on it!”

While Foxx has yet to clarify exactly what happened, he said at the 7th annual AAFCA Special Achievement Awards in March that he will share the full story in a forthcoming stand-up comedy special.

A second insider told PEOPLE that Foxx “is super busy, happy and going strong,” nearly one year after the medical emergency that landed him in the hospital for several weeks while he was filming his upcoming Netflix movie Back in Action with Cameron Diaz, who makes her long-awaited Hollywood return.
