Tyler Perry—the man best known for dressing in drag as ‘Madea’—must now prove to the world that he can be a legitimate action star. In Alex Cross (in theaters now), Tyler Perry reprises the role first made famous by acting legend Morgan Freeman in Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider.

Perry plays police detective Alex Cross who clashes with a sadistic serial killer who specializes in torture and pain. Giancarlo Esposito, Matthew Fox, Carmen Ejogo, and Cicely Tyson also star in the thriller.
