Tyler Perry Is ‘100%’ Ready to Let Someone New Play Madea

After spending more than two decades in the character’s trademark floral dresses, Tyler Perry is ready to pass on the baton to the next performer. On Friday, Netflix will release A Madea Homecoming, the latest of several movies to feature Perry as Madea — a character inspired by Perry’s real-life mother and aunt. He had previously considered retirement from playing Madea after 2019’s A Madea Family Funeral, but with everything that’s gone on in the world since then, the comedian felt that people needed laughter more than ever, prompting Madea’s return.

After doing one more feature film with A Madea Homecoming, Tyler Perry says he’s ready to pass off the role for the upcoming Showtime prequel series.Read MoreMovieWeb – Feed
