Tyler Perry is actually a rather good actor is non comedy roles. He will be on board this film with some heavy hitter actors. This will be very interested to see this. So far i felt he has giving his best performance in the 2014 film Gone Girl.

He is definitely no Colin Powel. He needs to stick to his shuck and jive Madea roles. I wouldn't even take him seriously as Mr. Powel. Colin is dignified and articulate. This fat closeted queen has none of his cadence in his being. That's like when Aretha Franklin asked Halle Berry to play her in her biopic. Halle said girl BYE!

Oh my Lawd! I just can't take him seriously as an actor in non-comedic roles. There was NOBODY ELSE AVAILABLE????

I'll pass...

I troll it like I see it said...

While I liked him in Alex Cross. He does not have the essence to play Colin Powell. James Earl Jones would be a much better choice, if he were a little younger. Tyler while a decent actor, lacks the depth to play such a serious figure. You only get one shot at portraying historical figures accurately. We need an actor with range to pull this off believable.

No! Colin Powell is probably cringing at this right now.

Just an observation said...

To have a man who made his fame from wearing a dress to portray a influential figure in politics, is definitely a joke and insult to Colin Powell's legacy. Perry is terrible as a leading male actor.
