They Think I Can't Do it!

There are a lot of people who think I can't do this. There are also a lot of people who think you won't show up because I'm not playing Madea. There are also a lot of people who are working overtime to try to discourage you from seeing Alex Cross as they do with all of my films... I'm hoping you'll prove them all wrong.

Can you believe we've done this 15 times? I gotta tell you, I'm so hoping you are planning on going out to see Alex Cross this weekend. I have never been more excited for you to see me do something. This is totally different for me. I loved it and I think you're going to love it too. You know that the opening weekend is how you're judged in Hollywood. So if you can, please try to get out this weekend. Be sure to check your ticket stubs to make certain they say "Alex Cross" and whatever you do, drop me a message to let me know what you thought. I love to sit by the message board and read your comments. You're the real critics. And judging from what I read on the board from those of you who went to last night's late night shows, you loved it too. TELL SOMEBODY... LOL

I know you may not know this, but there is a lot riding on this film. This is the first time that I have ever been considered for a role like this. Hollywood has never even offered it to me. I've done my best and I've done all I can. It's in your hands now.

I feel like a little kid in church about to do my first solo! :-)

Take someone with you if you can. This is an experience that should be shared.

Tom Joyner has "take a loved one to the doctor day"... Well today is "take a doubter to the movie day".

Alex Cross in theaters RIGHT NOW!!!

I love you guys so much. Thanks for all you've done for me, my employees and their families.

Be blessed,

    Went to see Alex Cross today...it wasn't as bad as the critics claimed. The director could have done a better job but I think you played your role well. You do always look like you want to laugh but you did have moments where you showed real emotion. Don't worry about trying to live up to Morgan Freeman's standard...just continue to hone your skills and try new things....the more you stretch yourself the more you will begin to see the results that you want and get the satisfaction that you crave. Keep up the good work....show up and give them something to talk about.

    Mr Perry, you did it! Wow so proud of you! You were great! After reading what the critics said just made me wanna go even more. Man they don't know what they're talking about, saying you'll laugh thru the movie and you're not supposed to because it's a thriller. Well heck I needed those laughs cause that killer man was crazeee! Lol! I loved it! And one of your friends who said he wasn't hating on you (but he was) saying you need to stay in your lane & that you weren't manly enough, well wrong again! You played every part well & looked pretty manly to me lol! Again great job! I still can't wait till I get my chance to work with you..I won't give up, I will be in one of your movies, sitcoms, shows on OWN, something with you 2 moguls! It will happen IJN AMEN! We love you TP and there ain't nothing the critics can do about it!

    Tyler, Went today with two other family members to see Alex Cross and you did your thang. Some folks believe that all you can do is "Madea" but wait until they see you as Alex Cross. I've followed Alex Cross in Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider with Morgan Freeman playing the role. Didn't think anyone else could play the role of Alex Cross but after seeing you in the movie you are Alex Cross. Sorry Morgan there's a new sheriff in town...LOL.

    Hi Tyler, I just got back from seeing Alex Cross, today is my Best Friend's Birthday,and we looked forward to seeing Alex Cross for weeks, and believe me when I say it was worth the wait. You were great, the movie was every thing I hope it would be. You should be very proud. I know this is old school, but YOU WERE SMOKING. We all agreed that if you were any hotter you would have melted the screen. I'll be looking for you Emmy Night. As always, keep God first and you'll always shine through. God Bless, My Brother.

    Tyler, you are great everything you do! I loved the movie, and I love YOU!

    Ty, I always take time to go out with myself. I do this in order to get a quiet moment and to enjoy myself. I got off early and went to see the movie. I was so proud of my investment. You rock Ty. I know that "critics" say what they are paid to say. However, we define ourselves by what God says and what we believe about ourselves. I loved it and I love your talent. I am going to see it again. Love ya, Steph
