Remember back when Kim Kardashian was just that girl who got run up in by Brandy’s brother? Remember how she wasn’t making millions of dollars for standing and breathing? Remember how she was Brandy’s “stylist” and went buckwild with the credit card? Remember how Brandy’s mom sued her ass for like $120K plus interest?
What does Tyler Perry have to do with this?
Well, he cast Kim’s extra-ridiculously-untalented ass in his new movie…and he cast Brandy as her co-star.
Tyler Perry is a true stunt queen.
Brandy Norwood, who goes by her first name as a Grammy Award-winning recording artist, has joined the cast of Tyler Perry’s Lionsgate pic “The Marriage Counselor” along with Robbie Jones, Ella Joyce and Jerry Stiller.
Jurnee Smollett stars as the title character, while Lance Gross, Kim Kardashian and Vanessa Williams co-star.
As Variety first reported Oct. 20, Smollett plays a newlywed marriage counselor who gives great relationship advice but finds it difficult to address issues in her own. Gross will play her husband, while Jones will play a smooth-talking client with whom she has an affair. Williams will play the owner of the firm where the marriage counselor practices, while Kardashian will play her sassy co-worker. Norwood will play Gross’ co-worker. (cont.)
LOL @ Kim Kardashian playing a sassy anything. She’s about as sassy as a 1981 Buick with a missing door.
That’s not all Tyler is up to though. In case you didn’t know, Tyler is set to play Alex Cross in next year’s I, Alex. I forgive you if you don’t know who Alex Cross is. I won’t go into the boring details, but James Patterson created the character…and he’s taking over the role from Morgan Freeman.
I heard they first approached Idris Elba for it. What happened there? I really hope somebody didn’t actually say “I’m not sure Idris is right for this. What’s Tyler MADEA Perry up to these days?”
What does Morgan Freeman think about this? You have this great character first portrayed on film by the same guy who has played GOD TWICE…and stepping into his shoes, a drag queen specializing in larger-than-life senior citizens? And Tyler out of drag is just awkward. He has this twitchy, gay mouth. I’m serious. Just look at his lips (not for too long though) and they are always twitching, like a choir director on the DL.
Stepping in for Morgan Freeman.
Somebody must’ve been high as hell.
