NEW YORK, Feb. 15 (UPI) -- Actor Jamie Foxx has interviewed for his SiriusXM radio show the family of Trayvon Martin, the Florida teen killed last year by George Zimmerman.

Foxx's conversation with Martin's parents, Tracy and Sybrina, and attorney/family advocate Benjamin Crump will debut on Saturday's edition of "The Foxxhole."

"I don't think there has ever been a story that has impacted me the way this story has," Foxx said in a statement.

Zimmerman, a Hispanic-American, has said the shooting was justified under Florida's stand-your-ground law because Martin attacked him. Zimmerman confronted Martin, who was walking in a gated community where Zimmerman was a neighborhood watch coordinator.

Prosecutors said Zimmerman profiled, pursued and killed the black 17-year-old in Sanford, Fla. The case is to go to trial in June.

Foxx's films include "Django Unchained," "The Soloist" and "Ray."
