Tyler Perry fans get to see the actor/producer/director in a part other than his coined Madea character again. Perry will soon be featured in a James Patterson’s adapted book film Alex Cross.
In Alex Cross , the tall stout actor drops his dress for a rather manly look and a few guns. According to the film’s synopsis the movie, in which Perry will play detective Alex Cross, is described as such:
When a detective is pulled out of a family celebration and given the awful news that a beloved relative has been found brutally murdered. He vows to hunt down the killer, and soon learns that she was mixed up in one of Washington’s wildest scenes. And she was not this killer’s only victim.
The hunt for her murderer leads Alex and his girlfriend, Detective Brianna Stone, to a place where every fantasy is possible, if you have the credentials to get in. As Alex closes in on the killer, he discovers evidence that points to the unimaginable–a revelation that could rock the entire world.
Not being use to seeing Perry playing gun-man roles could come off a little strange for his fans but he may be able to pull it off.
