Behind the scenes he is also a major player in the world of entertainment with his own production studios in Atlanta. He recently wrapped production on the Lionsgate comedy, We the Peeples, and can next be seen starring alongside Thandie Newton and Gabrielle Union in Good Deeds. Perry is also set to begin production in the title role of Rob Cohen’s I, Alex Cross.
Tasha Smith is a dedicated and consummate performer. Tyler Perry was so impressed with her stellar work, that he cast her to star in three of his films, including Lionsgate’s Daddy’s Little Girls, opposite Idris Elba and Gabrielle Union; the #1 box office hit Why Did I Get Married?, alongside Janet Jackson and Jill Scott; and its sequel, Why Did I Get Married Too? All three films have grossed over $146 million domestically combined.
After striking gold with two ultra-popular family sitcoms on TBS (Tyler Perry’s House of Payne and Meet the Browns), writer-director-producer Tyler Perry is ready to take comedy in a new, more adult direction with Tyler Perry’s For Better or Worse. This all-new comedy, based on Perry’s Why Did I Get Married? movies, focuses on three couples at various stages of their relationships.
