if Madea shows up, I'm walking out...

Well lookey here, something else kinda controversial that happened while I was busy celebrating the Health Care Bill (that could potentially be no more thanks to the fabulous US Senate):

Tyler Perry finally announced the cast to the upcoming feature adaptation of Ntozake Shange's famous choreopoem "For Colored Girls Who Have Considered have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf."

Or rather, I should say a partial list. Because although there are only seven nameless women in the original work that we've all come to know and love, Mr. Perry has stated that there will be FIFTEEN roles in the film.


Anyhoo, here it is:
- Whoopi Goldberg, Phylicia Rahsad, Jurnee Smollett, Kimberly Elise, Kerry Washington, Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey, and Macy Gray


Yeah... I was rocking with him right up until Janet. After that, no. Not so much. But hey, I love a surprise and believe in prayer. So you never know, maybe Macy will surprise us all....

*whips out rosary and gets to mumblin' my Hail Marys"


  1. What Voodoo did Janet put on T.Perry such that she's in every film he produces these days? I don't get it. No shade to Ms. Jackson -- Fantastic musical act -- not so much on the acting.

  2. I agree. I would have prefered Jill over Janet but hey...he's getting better & I appreciate his effort.
