Tyler Perry

Tyler Perry (born September 13, 1969) is an American actor, director, playwright, screenwriter, producer, and author. Already a successful artist in Southern theatre, Perry began to make national celebrity status in 2005 with the release of his first movie, Diary of a Mad Black Woman. In 2009, Perry was ranked by Forbes magazine as the sixth highest-paid man in Hollywood. As of July 2009, Perry's films had grossed nearly $400 million worldwide. Perry was born in New Orleans, Louisiana as Emmitt Perry, Jr., named after his father, a carpenter. His family consisted of three siblings, his mother, Willie Maxine Perry, and his father. His childhood was far from ideal. Perry once said of Emmitt Sr., "his only answer to everything was to beat it out of you." As a child, Perry once went so far as to attempt suicide in an effort to escape his father's beatings.

Tyler received a $5.5 million budget to fund his first movie, Diary of a Mad Black Woman, which went on to gross $50.6 million domestically. Perry's film version of Madea's Family Reunion opened at number one at the box office with $30.3 million, Perry's next Lionsgate project, Daddy's Little Girls, starred Gabrielle Union and Idris Elba and was released in the U.S. on February 14, 2007. It grossed over $31 million. Perry wrote, directed, produced and starred in his next movie, Why Did I Get Married? released on October 12, 2007. It opened at number one, grossing $21.4 million that weekend. It is loosely based on his play of the same name.

Why Did I Get Married Too? the sequel to Why Did I Get Married?, opened in theaters on April 2, 2010. It featured an award winning cast, featuring Janet Jackson, Cicely Tyson, Louis Gossett Jr., Jill Scott and Malik Yoba, just to name a few. As of April 18, the movie has grossed over $54 million domestically, with $29 million made the opening weekend. Chances are there may be yet another sequel because of the movie's unexpected ending.
