I've Heard You! Now's Your Chance!

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!

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 click HERE 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.


Good luck!

  • Problems!! people

    If I had it correctly, Tyler said post your video not "tell me about your problems" . Nor matter how rich or poor you are, one way or the other one has to encounter 2 if not 3 problems and most of the times it is in our power to find out how to make it through that. I personally don't have much but I find my Joy in giving n sharing whatever I have with someone, however each time I come across someone with the attitude of "Look at me, Poor me, No one wants to help me" I just turn my face n look away I'd rather share my last plate of food with a Gardner who has nothing n trying to make a living. Uh, people!

    Mr. Perry, each link you have posted within your announcement regarding the "audition" does not link to additional steps, only to the Witness Protection trailer. If you indeed want people for upcoming releases, please instruct them directly to do so in a manner they may provide your requests because people look up to you and everybody wants that break. On a lighter note, I look forward to the newest movie on the 29th... Keep up the great work.... God bless....

    Hi Tyler, I recorded and uploaded my video, but I don't see it in the audition feed. I hope that it was received properly! I submitted twice just in case, the first time it said your Audition will be viewed and approved and then uploaded and the second time it said, thank you and gave me a link. I see it on my YouTube Channel but not on yours. I'm so eager for this opportunity that I want to be sure it was uploaded properly. I followed all three steps, but can't help but worry if it went through or not. HELP! Please? Thank YOU! God Bless!

    I am so thrilled that you are doing a talent search. I am having a problem getting on your uploading page. I am interested in what you are looking for. I have done acting in our local theater, a lot of people say that acting is my calling. I also have pics and newspaper articles of plays that I have been in. I had to audition for ev play that I have been in. I can also do a little singing also. I would love to audition if I could get my upload in.

    Hi Mr. Tyler Perry, thank you for giving us this oppurtunity to shine in one of your tv shows, plays, and movies. I wished I could audition for this wonderful oppurtunity, but I'm not ready yet. I hope in the near future you'll do another talent search....I know by that time I'll be more prepared. There are many different things I'm interested in doing in TV. I love to write and I love everything about film/directing whether it's behind the scenes or in front of the camera. I know with all your talent, you'll lead me in the right direction. God Bless You and hopefully I'll work with you one day in the near future!!!!!!! We love you Tyler!!!!!!!

    I Am Very Excited To Even Audition For Tyler Perry,This Has Always Been A Dream Of Mine.

    That should say, "CUSSING" not fussing! :-P Smartphones are not really smart as they think they are.

  • Sheneith Hawkins Dallas,Tx

    Well from the looks of it TP, u have some very excited fans w/ dreams of becoming apart of your empire. After receiving your message about placing a 3 min video of their best. A lot of them seem to be having a problem w/ what u are asking of them & also the 3 steps in doing so. I saw 1 video of a young guy rapping, singing etc. I'll keep checking back to see & vote. Today fb seem to be having a problem w/ me I have received 2 or 3 spam noticed as I posted on some of your pages. So, that's 1 reason y I'm over here so EARLY! LOL... If I was fussing or threaten some1 on there that would b a different story. When I see on the daily ppl leaving very harsh comments on u all's pages on the regular. Anyway, I don't fight flesh & blood so pls believe I understand but I don't like it. U gonna know if I get blocked out. I'm gonna send u a email. :-) Opposition/Opportunity ....opposition stands at the door of opportunity. I'm happier now that I know better cause I used to be a MESS! Thats what I said, I used to be a mess. Now I'm a message. Lol... :-) And TP, its not that I wouldn't want to work w/ u, its just I don't find fulfillment in begging any1 for anything. I truly now believe what's for me its for me. I have other dreams which are so special to me. And I hold them dear to my heart. Do u think most ppl have forgotten who they are? Anyway, I know who I am because I have learned Whose I am. :) I'm misunderstood a lot, that I know but its all good. Joseph was misunderstood too but it didn't change his destiny. I sometimes wonder what Joseph did down in the pit being his own brothers/family threw him there. But I also look up to Joseph cause he said to them, "Don't b afraid, for am I in the place of God? But as for u, u meant evil against me; BUT GOD meant it FOR GOOD, IN ORDER to BRING IT ABOUT as it is this day, to save many ppl ALIVE....And he comforted them AND spoke KINDLY to them. Gen.50:19-22 Read it in your spare time or devotion time. I'm better & also I will like to become even better. :-) Ttyl... :). ;-)

    How do I view how to submit for this contest? I keep getting the trailer instead of directions. Am I doing something wrong?
