Inneresting! A real stretch from what he is used to, that's for sure.
Tyler Perry's reportedly stepping into the role of Alex Cross, a detective-psychologist created by author James Patterson in a new flick.
The role was previously portrayed by Morgan Freeman (twice), but we imagine Morgan's gotten a bit old for the role! Or maybe they just wanted someone who was more of a master of disguises! Who knows!
No word yet what Patterson story will be coming to the big screen, but the script is said to be in the final stages. Along with a new movie, James also reportedly has an 18th novel featuring the character coming out later this year.
What do U think of Tyler taking over the role?
