Madea is picking up her gun as Detective Alex Cross. Actor, playwright Tyler Perry will star as the doctor detective in James Patterson’s latest in the detective series, I, Alex Cross. This time Tyler Perry will have his hands full as he tracks down a serial killer.
The Alex Cross detective role was previously played by Morgan Freeman in Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider, but according to ETonline, “Tyler didn’t contact Freeman for any tips and instead just tried to focus on how he could uniquely portray the character.”
The video shows a sneak peek of filming and interviews with the actor on the set of I, Alex Cross, which is set to hit theaters sometime next year.
