Remember Racquel Bailey? The New Jersey woman who spent $1,500 - her "last money for the year" - to have her handsome visage plastered on a billboard near Tyler Perry Studios because she so badly wants to be in one of his movies?
SOMEONE GET HER ON THE PHONE because Perry just announced on Facebook that he's hosting an online contest to win a walk-on roll in an upcoming film. Granted, the contest appears to be a method of promoting "Madea's Witness Protection," but, hey, a walk-on roll.
Here's what Perry says about it to his "online family":
For a long time now, people have been asking me how they can be in one of my movies, plays or TV shows. Even as I read through my message board, the most popular question I see is, "How can I be in one of your movies?"
So... this one's for YOU! Now's your chance to earn a walk on role in one of my upcoming productions!
Just enter the Tyler Perry Talent Search at http://youtube.com/tylerperrystudios
I've created this competition to give my entire online family a chance to showcase their talent, and I expect to see some future stars. Even better, you'll be responsible for picking the Top 10 finalists. That's right... you get to vote for your favorite videos! Then, I'll personally choose the winner from your Top 10.
The competition starts NOW, so go to http://youtube.com/tylerperrystudios and follow steps 1, 2 & 3 to participate.
Voting closes and the Top 10 will be announced on June 29th the same day MADEA'S WITNESS PROTECTION hits theaters.
Then, I'll personally choose the winner on July 6th.
I CAN'T WAIT TO WATCH THESE AUDITIONS!!!
Alright, alright, stop yelling.
When you go to the You Tube page, there's a trailer for "Madea's Witness Protection," which I very much recommend watching (hell, I'll post it after the jump). The premise is that a man (Eugene Levy) and his family (Denise Richards, Doris Roberts) have to go into hiding from the mob so they go live with Madea. What? I don't know. I wonder what Eugene Levy thinks about things. Life and things.
