Tyler Perry (born Emmitt Perry, Jr.; September 13, 1969) is an American actor, director, screenwriter, playwright, producer, author, and songwriter, specializing in the gospel genre. Perry wrote and produced many stage plays during the 1990s and early 2000s. In 2011, Forbes named him the highest paid man in entertainment; he earned $130 million between May 2010 and 2011.
Perry is best known for both creating and performing in drag the Madea character, a giant, overreactive, and thuggishly tough elderly woman. Perry is also well known for creating both stage play and conventional onsite films. Between the two, his stage play films debuted first in 1998 with I Know I've Been Changed. His career with conventional onsite films began in 2005 with Diary of a Mad Black Woman, which features the character Madea, his claim to fame. Many of Perry's conventional onsite films are based on and titled after his stage play films.
Perry currently has an upcoming Madea film in the works: A Madea Christmas (conventional onsite film based on the play), slated for release on December 13, 2013. In addition, Perry has announced that he's working on a Madea animated film for kids.
