A few weeks ago we learned that Tyler Perry was the highest paid man in entertainment last year, as he raked in $130 million between May 2010 and May 2011. Whether you love or hate the man’s work, you can’t deny that the dude makes some sound (economical) decisions. So, I guess he knew exactly what he was doing when he cast reality star and star of her own home porn flick Kim Kardashian to so-star in his next comedy feature film The Marriage Counselor. Deadline broke the news late yesterday.
Kardashian will play Ava, a friend and co-worker of the main character, Judith the marriage counselor, played by Friday Night Lights star Jurnee Smollett. Ava’s main charge, according to the report, is to give Ava a makeover and help her with her personal problems. Those personal problems? Married Judith ends up banging one of her clients. Shooting for the film begins Oct. 26 in Atlanta.
I’m almost afraid to ask, but what do you think about Perry’s casting choice?
