The man himself Tyler Perry sat down with Larry King this weekend and talked about his meteoric rise to success. Everyone knows that Tyler Perry went from homeless and living in his car to one of the richest entertainers in America. Last year alone he grossed $125 million only 3rd behind Oprah Winfrey and 50 Cent. Not to mention that this past weekend his Madea Goes To Jail smashed the box office with a $41.1 million openener. It also broke the record for the amount grossed on an opening weekend for any of his previous movies and Lionsgate’s films.

We would like to see Tyler continue to branch out and trek unchartered waters. The comedy is great but you have to mix it up with serious drama, action, romance and other story lines to get that coveted Oscar award. Plus you don’t want to type cast yourself as a producer where the public only starts to look for certain kinds of films from you. Oh and word is that he is coming out with “Why Did I Get Married?” part 2. But anyhow he is doing an excellent job resurrecting Black Hollywood.
