Tyler Perry needs extras for yet another Madea movie

madea_gun2Tyler Perry has another Madea movie in the works and is seeking extras.

The project, “Madea’s Witness Protection,” will be filming here through March. They need folks of all looks, all races, both men and women. You do need to be 18 or older.

The casting folks are also looking for people with professional work attire and flexible work schedules. The pay is $8 per hour for a guarantee of eight hours for extras if you are booked, or $120 for 12 hours for stand-ins who are booked.

They advise you need to be available for a 12 to 14-hour day, and note that “set etiquette” is a must. In other words do not think Tyler Perry is going to be posing with you for photos that you can post on your Facebook page. Quite the opposite. You’ll be asked to sign all sorts of confidentiality paperwork.

See and click on the label “How to Become an Extra” for more details.

I will do it. I have always wanted to be in a movie where a black man dresses like a woman. I have tried for Big mamas franchise, the klumps, The nutty professor, white chicks!

I assume “set etiquette” on a Tyler Perry movie means you can’t do anything that could potentially be construed as the least bit funny. Probably in the contract.

To movie goer and enough already, you both need to stop hating on someone who is making room for someone to have a job, to earn some money,if not extra money. You need to think before you type or speak.

I would rather be an extra on “The Walking Dead” AMC hit tv series than this now worn over and never ending sequels of “Madea, the dude dressed in drag”.

Get some scripts Mr. Perry if you want money from my wallet.

Mr.Perry is really contributing to his own “PURSE”! There are PLENTY of $8 an hour jobs out there. Seems no one will work for that because it is demeaning and beneath them. But Mr. Perry throws it out there and he is a saviour to the peoples? Of course, being an extra involves just basically doing what most are doing every day anyway. Nothing!

My nephew, Calvin Stone Jr. will be willing to be an extra as well. I think you will love him, his attitude, and his singing. Thank you so much Mr. Perry. Stay blessed, and highly favor.

I am not big into TP Madea’s movies, but I love his Diary of a Mad Black Women, Why Did I Get Married, Family that Preys Together, etc. he shows that he is a multi-talented Producer. He can be silly and/or serious. Good for you TP!! He can make all the Madea movies he wants, I’m not paying for them & he’s not hurting me. GO TP!! I don’t care what Spike Lee or anyone else says, TP is raking in the $$$$!

O.K. Really, where have you been and where are ALL those $8hr jobs that You say are so plentiful?? And yes, there are numerous people that WOULD work for $8 an hour if they could find one, so why don’t you tell us where they are, since you are such an authority? People like you are so hateful and just won’t give the man credit. I’m sure he could have gone out of state and gotten people to use, but he chose to give people a chance to make a little money and of course he’s making money in the process, that’s why he’s in show business, DUHH!!

I would enjoy the opportunity to become an extra in a Tyler Perry production. I’ve worked as an extra in “ATL,” with T.I. and I worked on the film, “The Fighting Temptations,” with Beyonce and Cuba Goodings, Jr. I just need the chance to work and earn some money. I’m all in!

How this guy makes money is amazing. His films suck. His TV shows suck. And he is not funny by any means at all. If it were not for the laugh tracks…one wouldn’t even know it was intended to be funny…much less, the fact that the shows and movies simply suck (to reiterate the obvious).

I am so excited...What are the chances?

January 12th, 2012

I think this is a great opportunity. We will pray hard for this. Life would be so boring and sad without TP’s movies. I know my niece and crew will love this. Ok … The opportunity to work long hour ….Great!!
