That film was produced with a budget of 5 and a half million dollars and went on to make over 50 million at the box office. His next film was a film version of his popular stage play “Madea’s Family Reunion”. That film opened at number 1 at the box office and since then more “Madea” films have been made. “Madea’s Witness Protection” is the newest film in the Madea series and that movie is currently in production.

  2. bobby mclaurin

    Dear Mr. Perry aka Dad,
    My name is Bobby McLaurin. I know that you don’t know me. But I was contacting you to see what would I have to do to have a show with your help.
    My show will be about my life story. I have done a lot of things in my past that made me the man that I am today. It was nobody but God.
    What I’m going to open up to show everyone will help someone as well. What I’m going to open up about a lot of people in the LGBT. Won’t open up about it.
    Coming up as a black gay man has not been easy. Not only that but as a cross dresser as well, did a few drag shows too. Been with all type of men. You name it I done it. But the show will be about me changing into the man that God ordered me to be.

  3. bobby mclaurin

    Just want to be able to tell my life story. To be able to make a movie out of it. It will teach a lot of people life. I’m all about my father business. What I’m going to open up about a lot of people won’t tell.
    I pray that I will hear from you very soon. If it’s the Lord’s will.

  21. Cassandra Cassel

    Hello my name is Cassandra Cassel. I’m 19 years old & I want to pursue a career in acting. I’m 5’1 , African american , pretty brown , gorgeous eyes , slim figured , bold , sweet , funny & I’m a virgo (sept 10th) which I believe plays a very big part in my goofy , fun , but extremely loving & caring personality. I’ve decided to sign up for Mr. Perry’s Movies for a chance to become something I always dreamed of.

    I don’t want to sound regular & I know everyone has issues of their own but me becoming an actor & making a name for myself will mean everything to me & my family. I just want to take care of my mom because all she’s been doing was working hard her whole life from growing up poor to having to raise me & my big brother as a single mom with only a g.e.d to her name but here my brother is about to graduate college in December &amp I’ve recently finished my first year of college. All I want is to do what I love and that’s to perform and be on stage.

    I watch all of the tyler perry movies & just wish I could be on some of them or at least one of them. I’m a very bright person but my personality & love for acting & drive for meeting & helping out others is one thing out of the plenty that i’m good at. i have a heart of gold & a strive for success that’s beyond measures & all i want is a chance. Anything you ask of I’ll do my best! just please give me a chance. thank you! – Cassie

I loved it, absolutely cool. I live in england and everyone thinks I should be an actress. I really need this if you have an audition for me.

  38. Kleopatra Mitchell

    Tyler perry, I must say, I never acted before, but I find myself to be so passionate about it. I guess from the life I lived gave me so much passion. I’m pretty sure you hear this also. I never wanted to act as much as I did until I watched your movies, shows,etc. Hope to audition for you one day. I would love for my first appearance and acting experience to be with you. God Bless

  39. Shante key

    When I got the news that Tyler Perry had already been doing auditions, I was shocked. This can be a opportunity of a life time. Then I asked myself what do I really have to offer. The only experience I have is daily living. The only training I’ve endured is tough love and that hospitality gets you a long way with patience. Patients is my middle name, or at least it should have been. I’ve been told my actions speak louder than my words and my personality can get me places. Lord I hope they’re right. Later for now.

    Yours Miss Key
