In 1988 I was an extra in the Miami Vice series "Baseball Of Death" It was a non-speaking role, but after another actor (extra) with lines kept messing up on his mark and lines, Don Johnson asked me it I thought I could do the role. without a doubt, I replied. Nailed it! The special guest star Mr. Tony Plano came up to me and said I was a natural act. He gave me a few numbers, and said call me, we need hispanic actors, I'll fly you to Cali. I left the phone numbers inside my costume pants pocket. 19 years later I divorced and moved from Fl. to Ga. My love for acting was reborn, so I thought. God had other plans. I did some acting but it was only a tool God was using to introduce me to what he wanted me to do. As a retired cop I found myself helping screenwriters with their "Cop movies" One day out of nowhere, acting took a back seat, and somehow I felt as if God told me to write for him and his Glory. God closed the doors on me until there was only one door left . Since crossing that threshold, I've written and created a few screenplays and many more in my head to include a show for the food & health network and a sitcom. Now I'm just waiting for God's time, for he's in the Director's Chair!
Thank You.. It is in my opinion that the other producers that are hating on what you do, just wish that they had done it first.... Spike Lee for an instance... He wants to say that you are degrading blacks in what you are doing... Well this is what I have to say to him... He did the same thing in J***** Fever... He put the black crackhead on film, the white woman who slept with the black husband.. So what in the bleep is he talking about. You show how we have come up in the world so that we can have the 40 Acres and the the mule, cows, horses, goats, hay and the whole nine if we wanted to. You have shown what also true in the black and white community in your films and if they don't like it, it is simply because they don't like the truth of where we came from and how we act. They don't like to see the real world and how blacks and whites act. Yes you have great actors and actresses and they are playing the heck out of somebody's life for real. So I say Hollywood, Bollywood and whoever could; get a grip on what you are showing, because it is for real. Every person in the world like it or not can and does see somebody that they know. I love you and will keep supporting you, " cause I'm witcha when ya right!"
Being an Italian American From NYC and an Actress I remain To be limited to what Casting agents think I am and what they think I can do so I have to fight Twice as Hard and not Complain but be Grateful at the same time for any work I get I thank God no matter what. But it's very Hurtful and it gets to you after a while when People see you as one Thing and one thing Only . So my Struggle is I don't ever waste time complaining I'm just trying to figure out How does one Go about getting other to see what you have on the Back Burners especially in this Business. By the way Under the radar is Brilliant

I love you Tyler Perry, I know that you have heard this many times but I mean it. You give so many people hope that dreams can come true. Iam so amazed when I look at were you came from and how much God has blessed you to be the great man you are now. I can watch your comedy movies and laugh every time like it was my first time seeing it. Stay strong and continue to make us Laugh and cry!
Keep up the Amazing work King Tyler Perry...God bless you Always..We Love You. Thanks for Inspiring Me
This an amazing message and I do agree with you when you speak of things not coming your way until they are supposed to or that they may not because you just aren't meant for them and that God knows when and how or if you're have it and that things to have to be earned and I also do believe when God closes a door he opens a window I have seen this in my life. So thank you for all these inspirations and positive messages because they really stick. God bless
I've just decided to speak about your films. They are great. I own them all. I wish I could sing for you, but I'm handicap. Your ending for the Have & Have Nots was superbly outstanding. God Bless
Tyler is an incredible man. He's an awesome director, actor, comedian and writer. He's an inspiration...every time I write into my second manuscript i think of Tyler. I know that just like God blessed him, He'll bless me. I deal with a lot of haters because God's glory is on my life and whatever i put my hand to but I know that I haven't experienced the amount of haters he has because I'm not on his level of success. Tyler is going to keep it moving and do what God would have him to do. Thank you Lord for the inspiration of your child ...Tyler Perry. #Minister Rhonda Jackson
AMEN, AMEN, AMEN. TO GOD BE THE GLORY. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE YOU! LET IT BE NO SECRET, WORLD, I SHALL AND WILL WORK FOR MY FUTURE BOSS MR. TYLER PERRY! ANY DAY, NOW! A DREAMER, Stephanie Green. Thank you.
I love everything about you. You're a light in the dark world. You're a beauty and you've overcame... You are grace and love. Keep being you.
Tyler, I am so grateful for your plays and movies. I can connect on many levels of your lessons that you teach through your plays and movies. Through you I found my spirituality through your shows. I wish you could be a preacher because you are so dead on with the worldly topics that many of us go through daily that our government seems to lose sight that we are real people in all walks of life that go through true life's obstacles. I always feel that you have took what I have wanted to say and feel right from my soul. I find myself crying and relating to what you are expressing. I want to thank you for giving me a light and knowing to hold onto faith. You have inspired in me to go to college. I am working on my second degree. The play The Haves and the Have Nots is my favorite play. Could you please extend a very special thank you to Patrice Lovely who plays Hattie. Maybe I can give you some suggestions for new shows. I was born in the system. I love to write. Everyone has a story.
You are truly a great motivator ,everything about you is really inspiring.I must confess you are truly a blessing .
