Madea Tyler Perry Defends His Choice To Cast Kim K In The Marriage Counselor

| Filed under: Film FlickersKim KardashianTyler Perry


As reported earlier, fans of Tyler Perry are unhappy Kim Kardashian is in his new flick.

VERY unhappy.

But the filmmaker is defending his choice, stating that he wants a younger cast to attract younger viewers.

Guess 30 is better than 50 if you're looking for younger viewers.

Perry asks for his fan's understanding and posted on his website the following:

It would be a very responsible of her to be a part of this film" and good for young people who see her as a role model to "see her in a film that is about what happens in life when you make the wrong choices.

Can his film stay afloat with K-Dash still involved?

    could he cast someone with a little bit of decency?

  2. 2

    I'm not seeing this movie, and I won't even download it illegally for free. How hypocritical is it that Kim K is a MARRIAGE counselor?? He just didn't want to make a change, and because of that, he will lose thousands of dollars from revenue. Way to stick to his guns. Hope she's worth it. #Bitchface

    wow what a dum ass… no young person should be looking up to her..

  6. 6

    i doubt the movie bombs just b/c Kim is in it. she probably only has like 5 lines anyway. PLUS this guy has some hard core fans (people like my poor family) lol

  7. 7

    I personally prefer his plays to his movies

  8. 8

    This film is going to BOMB. She is in NO WAY shape or form a role model. She contributes nothing to nobody but HERSELF!!

    Re: pie107
    It will bomb. Casting her is a big mistake. Look at Lindsay Lohan. She has talent, but with all the drama going on in her life no one is casting her in movies. I like his movies, but definitely will skip this one.

    not watching this movie…. sad tyler perry seems to have lost his mind!

  11. 11

    OF ALL THE PEOPLE IN CELEBRITY VILL, HE HAS TO PICK THE ONE THAT GOT BIG OFF OF SUCKING A BIG ASS DICK, and is now hated for being such a GREEDY and self centered person….
    WOW, is that your example of setting and example for younger viewers Mr.Perry ?
    Maybe Tyler Perry only cares about the MONEY also…. hmmmmmm say it aint so…
    What do you care more about Mr. Perry ?
    CLASS OR ASS ????
    I don't know if you've noticed but NO KARDASHIAN has any class but you better believe that they are all about selling that ASS..

  12. 12

    Role model? How can a smart guy say something so stupid? I really hope no one looks up to this woman.

  13. 13

    What a epic dis to all the young hard working students of acting and drama.
    Kim K has no talent, no training and her only experience is knocking off other people's products for her own financial gain. I hope this film goes straight to DVD.
    Perhaps Tyler Perry needs a lesson in good decision making.

  14. 14

    This is stupid, hes stupid. i hope this movie bombs and he can shove it. Not a smart move to keep this SKANK HOE in this movie.

    She has no talent, can't act (did u see her "sad face" after her divorce?) and is a skank. She has had more black cock than a toilet in a football stadium. Role model excusez moi?!

  17. 17

    He now officially sucks.

  18. 18

    What Younger viewers does he want to attract. Isn't there enough Garbage Movie filled with Garbage Individuals who have the gall to call themselves ACTORS out there !!! That is why the mentality of people are the way they are today. First of all Kim is NOT AN ACTOR/ACTRESS has NO Talent whatsoever let a lone a Role Model, Are You Kidding Me !!!!!!

    Very Disappointed in you Mr. Perry after thinking that you were trying to make a Positive Move towards film and stage ( though some of your work may be your stereotypical Black Jokes Type), but you've employed some of those who are of Black Heritage that are REAL actors and unfortunate some Actor Wannabe's as your current choice of Kim KarTRASHian..

  19. 19

    a classic example of somebody wanting to be friends with a celeb so puts them in his film. Self indulgent and an extremely bad professional decision. Youve cheapened your work and your rep.

    There is no defense for putting that piece of shit in your movie.

  21. 21

    Urgh I hate when people are cast to appeal to a certain audience. It makes me feel patronised. I'd rather they just cast the best person for the role and trust me to decide whether it's something I want to watch. It's especially not ok for him to think that the best way to appeal to the 'younger generation' is with someone like Kim Kardashian. What kind of morons does he think young people are?

  22. 22

    What a sorry excuse. There are many young (real) actresses out there, who also happen to be real role models.

  23. 23

    What the what? First of all there is nothing even remotely wholesome about Kim, isn't that the point of his movies, to hand out strength, pride, and moral lessons. Kim K handing those things out seems a bit counter productive.
    His movies have gotten really stupid in general, but this is a new low.

  24. 24

    Somehow dressing in drag and pillaging the chitlin circuit every other month was not enough. Casting Kim K makes you a TOTAL SELL-OUT.

  25. 25

    Who cares… BTW…Nice tux Tyler… but is that a BAT in your cave??? ewwww

  26. 26

    I love Tyler Perry's movies but this is one I will not see. Tyler, could you have not found someone else to play the counselor? Did you choose Kim to boost the numbers? There are so many other actresses out there who could have played the part without all the backlash you are going to receive. It isn't even the whole Kim/Kris marriage thing, as much as it is just the Kardashians in general. Could't you have hired someone who respects acting and not someone who just cares about money?

  27. 27

    He's basically saying that she's a BAD example that people can watch and learn from. I don't know how big a role she has in this movie, but she is NOT an actress, nor does she have acting skills, so I'm not sure why he saw her as a fit for this role. It's ultimately his choice so I say leave the guy alone. I'm curious to see what it turns out like.

    Tell the truth, bro. U r casting a WHOREdashian because u don't wanna pay real money to a real actress.

    His lips are similar to Kim Kardashians overfilled fake lips. As for Tyler Perry who cross dress in his movies playing both female/male roles reminds me of Eddie M. Tyler won't come out of the closet so I have no respect for him, not enough guts to come out and take ownership of what he is. Worse, we might hear of him getting male prostitutes on the corners like EM? As for Tyler P, he is similar to Oprah being raped at young age, com'on, maybe one brought it on themselves to be victims?!!! Now they are milking the public with their victim story, ugh! So wrong and can't stand them and their crappy stories. So now Tyler P is a combination of EM and Oprah, he now goes to a sex porn whore like Kim Kardashian and claim she (Kim) is a role model. REALLY? Do you think all families are these screwed up like you all and have no common senses and decencies? I looked up Tyler P's website and what a" gag me" bulletin he has with comments like "Tyler is God's gift or messenger", etc etc. Wow,what BS. I am saddened with greedy whores like these fools ruining the young and the innocent ones and making false claims using God or "role models" as deception approach to drain money from us. We need to stop watching/supporting these fools and quit making them richer, all they do is lie to us.

    I* heard people are going to picket that movie when it opens becauase she is in it. Too bad he wants to waste nhis money and future on putting a home porn queen who lets men piss on her and anal sex and marries some poor guy and then makes him look like a fool..this is someone to look up to. Not according to my kids and grand kids. They think that whole family is being pimped out by their "mother" and that those girls are tramps and the brother is a loser because of them. The step father?? Please he can't make up his mind of he is a man or a woman.
