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,

    It's such a sad world. Today everything is about politics ,race, and class. I'm quite sure that you will do great, you always do. I will be seeing Alex Cross along with my friends.

    I believe somebody is always going to have so Something to say about what you shouldn't, do or what they think your not fit for. My thing is to do your best & proove them wrong, but be satisfied with knowing you did your best, because trying to please everybody is like having madea going through a day without slapping somebody. We know that's not going to happen....stay blessed Mr.Perry god's will hope to meet you one day.

    Hi Mr. TP, Wow, why are you worried. The world loves you. I love all of your work. It's difficult for people to say positive things and believe positive but they can always come up with a million negatives. Keep your head up and keep going strong. We all love you. Incorporate the "YES I / WE CAN" mentality.

    just that fast.... the enemy tries to break your spirits....some people cant help but to hate..why, why leave a negative comment on someone's page who's happy and excited about something they... have accomplished!.. if you have nothing nice to say don't say nothing at all!!! Shoot... I Love you Tyler ..... I will support any and everything you do. Im excited to see the movie and cannot wait!

    Hollywood don't know what the people want. If they did they wouldn't be playing the same movies from ten years ago but now in 3D or with a new cast! It's many new ideas that gets killed before the people gets a chance to decide. I tell people not to put in the box all the time. The critics don't know you like we think we do. This is your time to do something else. Do it! I'm behind you 1k%. It's a lot more you about to do that the critics don't think you can do. Laugh and run on. I'm about to go see it now. This role was made for you. Love Freeman but he never fitted the image of Cross as written by Patterson. Love James Patterson. Hope you guys do another one. Love ya Sir! Go Detroit Tigers! We are still celebrating!
