Jamie Foxx's Amazing Spider-Man 2 character looks less than intimidating -- at least before his transformation. 

The actor stopped by The Tonight Show on Tuesday to chat about playing the villain in the Sony superhero sequel, which arrives in summer 2014.

The audience was shown images of Max Dillon, an Oscorp employee with an unfortunate combover, and the villain he transforms into, Electro, who sports an Emperor Palpatine-style hood and glowing blue face.

When Jay Leno prodded the actor about Dillon's hair, Foxx responded that he asked his hairstylist to "make me look like I would look if I never made it."

The actor also demonstrated what Electro's voice sounds like: It was whispery.
