Tyler Perry is one of, if not the, most successful filmmakers working in Hollywood today. Actually to clarify, the man works out of his Atlanta home base… but what cannot be argued is the box office clout this megastar wields. He is back on screen with the touching Good Deeds and visiting with Movie Fanatic for an exclusive video interview to talk about writing, directing, producing and starring in the story of a man who has it all, but seeks much more. In our interview, Perry discusses what inspired him to write this film and what personally inspires him.
In the movie, Wesley Deeds (Perry) has always done what is expected of him, and to great success. When he meets Thandie Newton’s Lindsey Wakefield, a cleaning woman, everything changes. The film also stars Gabrielle Union, Phylicia Rashad, Eddie Cibrian and Rebecca Romijn.
