‘SNL’ – Jamie Foxx Channels Tyler Perry… Twice!
Poking fun at the fact that America can’t look at writer/director/producer/arrogant-individual Tyler Perry without seeing the 6’5″ grandmother that made him famous, last night’s ‘Saturday Night Live‘ spoofed his recent foray into drama.
‘Alex Cross,’ a film Perry simply acted in, was parodied with a sequel, ‘Alex Cross 2: Madea: Special Ops,’ with host Jamie Foxx channeling both Cross and Mabel “Madea” Simmons as a Batman-style Two-Face character on the hunt for a homicidal maniac. Unfortunately, for Cross, it’s impossible to stay focused on the investigation when Madea intervenes.
We’re pretty sure that Tyler’s only complaint about this concept will be that he didn’t think of it first for one of his own movies.
