Tyler Perry Appearing in Star Trek XI?

Madea Goes to Space.

by | January 2, 2008 | Comments

Tyler Perry — writer, director, and star of films such as Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married? and Madea Goes to Jail — is going boldly where hallowed names like Shatner, Nimoy, and Montalban have gone before.

We’re talking about Star Trek, of course — specifically, Star Trek XI, the J.J. Abrams-directed franchise reboot making its way to theaters on December 25. The UGO Movieblog reports that Perry has already filmed his role in Trek XI — and that it’s a character of some importance. Spoilers are involved, so if you want to know the whole scoop, you’ll have to read the full story; for now, suffice it to say the storyline involves a piece of older Trek lore.

Perry may not seem like the most obvious choice for a Trek cameo, but his forays into theater, film, television, and books have earned him a sizeable following — and the distinction of being one of the most bankable talents in show business — so in terms of building crossover appeal, this could be a pretty crafty move by everyone involved.
