The mega, R&B, superstar, singer, Mary J. Blige is about to take her hand at acting in a movie once again, and it will be the first time since New Line Cinema’s 2001 “Prison Song” film where she played a hard-working woman whoâ€™s spent the last several years attending night school with the eventual goal of becoming a lawyer. Now she’ll be working with Tyler Perry in one of his films entitled, “I Can Do Bad All By Myself” which is adapted from one of his plays.
Mary J Blige will play a night club manager named Tanya. The film will center around her,and her good friend named April who will be played by Academy Award nominee Taraji P. Henson. Tyler Perry will also be directing this film,and will again play the role of his extremely funny Madea character in the film. The movie is scheduled to have a nationwide release date of, September 11, 2009.
I’ll definitely watch another one of his films if it’s got Madea in it. That Madea character makes for some of the funniest material I’ve ever seen. He had me laughing hard in “Madea Goes To Jail”. I say bring on more Madea.
