Vibe / November 28, 2011

Whether you love him or hate him it’s obvious that Tyler Perry never stops working. The mega entrpreneur is busy producing his upcoming movie The Marriage Counselor but he’s also working on extending his acting career as he will be starring in another of his own creations. It’s a film entitled Good Deeds.

Juicy Tings reports that Perry will play a man who gets caught up with two different women. When asked about the film he stated:

A successful, wealthy businessman, Wesley Deeds (Tyler Perry) has always done what’s expected of him, whether it’s assuming the helm of his father’s company, tolerating his brother’s misbehavior at the office or planning to marry his beautiful but restless fiancée, Natalie (Gabrielle Union). But Wesley is jolted out of his predictable routine when he meets Lindsey (Thandie Newton), a down-on-her-luck single mother who works on the cleaning crew in his office building. When he offers to help her get back on her feet, the chance encounter with someone so far outside his usual circle ignites something in Wesley. This one good deed may finally spark his courage to exchange the life that’s expected of him for the life he’s always really wanted.

Good Deeds, which also stars Gabrielle Union, is set to be in theaters on February 24. –Krystal Holmes
